Photo #1 shows Polletts Cove Mountain and the col between its foothills from off the mouth of the conjoined Polletts Cove and Blair Rivers. Other than the first photo on the previous page, I do not have a photo which includes all of the coast to be examined on this web page, so this one will have to serve, truncating, as it does, the coastal areas to the north and south, which will be included in the following photos.
Photo #2 looks at the north end of “North Foothill”, where the great semi-circular rock face, seen in detail in photo #4 on the previous page, and the beach below it is the salient coastal feature south of the mouth of the unnamed brook which descends from the plateau above.
Photo #3, which overlaps with photo #2, looks further to the south, bringing most of “North Foothill” into view. Much of the upper portion of “North Foothill” is covered with deciduous trees, though the evergreens continue to line the coastal area. At the right of the photo, the coastal plain can be seen starting up once again; it will continue south to and beyond the mouth of the conjoined rivers.
Photo #4 is a moderately wide-angled view which brings into sharp focus the area to the left of centre in photo #3. These cliffs are formed of rocks, but gravel and small stones are visible all along this area, carried down by waters coursing over and down the cliffs or by erosion from wind, water, and ice. A narrow beach runs along this area as well. As one can see in photo #3, the cliffs are roughly a quarter the height of “North Foothill”, which the topographical map gives as above 160 m (525 ft), or some 40 m (130 ft).
Photo #5 continues moving towards the south, with the col between “North Foothill” and “South Foothill” right of the centre of the photo. A large scrape is visible left of centre at the start of the coastal plain.
Photo #6 is a telephoto view of the area at and to the south of the large scrape; it appears that an intermittent brook comes down from Polletts Cove Mountain in the col between the foothills and empties into the cliff at the left of the photo, just south of the large scrape. The rocks here seem to lack the reddish hues seen further north, but that may well just be an effect of the chiaroscuro lighting.
Photo #7 continues to the south, showing the coast south of the col between the foothills. The haze in the air is readily seen here in the returning sun that bathes the southern slopes of Polletts Cove Mountain. The coast shows significant signs of erosion and the cliffs right of centre interrupt the narrow beach that lies below the northern end of the coastal plain. That plain widens out somewhat here and begins to descend a bit; Polletts Cove Beach begins at the far right of the photo.
Photo #8 shows the northern end of Polletts Cove Beach and a good portion of the heavily forested “South Foothill”; the trees here again are mostly deciduous, though a crown of evergreens appears at the summit and a border of evergreens continues along the coastal plain.
Photo #9 completes this survey of the coast, almost showing the end of the southern slope of “South Foothill”. The coastal plain shows some up and down and a little more widening, while the rock cliffs have given way to cliffs of sand/gravel/dirt.
