Photo #1 is a wide-angled view that covers a lot of terrain, from Cape North at the far left to Pats Point at the far right, only a tiny sliver of which is visible here. This view is of the western side of the Massif, whereas those of the previous page were of its eastern side. The waters of Bay St Lawrence are far too leaden on this day to do this scenery justice, but the glorious open views one has all along this road still come through in this photo.
Photo #2 is a telephoto view of Cape North at the end of the Massif. Cape North is the northernmost point on the Massif; Money Point is further east and south and concealed here by the end of the Massif. The whitish rock face right of centre is known as White Rock; I’d guess it to be a gypsum deposit, but have never been close enough to it to say for certain.
Photo #3 looks to the east at the waters of Bay St Lawrence and the Cape North Massif rising behind them. The village of Bay St Lawrence and its harbour are to the left of this photo and outside of its scope, though the cliffs at the left, some of which are just beginning to reflect some sunlight, are not far down the shore from the harbour entrance. The gull right of centre is likely out looking for supper; what a view it must have, even better than that of the folks in the house just left of centre!
Photo #4 shows Pats Point in the foreground; Wreck Cove is the water on the shores of Capstick, inland and on the far side of Pats Point. Indeed, Capstick was once known as Wreck Cove, but had to change its name because there were too many other Wreck Cove post offices in Nova Scotia, so the hamlet was renamed to that of one of its prominent families. If you look on the far shore, you can see utility poles along the Meat Cove Road before it reaches Capstick. It goes around the point at the far left, on the other side of which is the mouth of the Salmon River. How beautiful the northern Cape Breton Highlands are!
Photo #5 shows some horses placidly grazing on the hillside across the road from the look-off. After admiring these fine animals, look at the foliage up above them on the hillside: there’s that shade of very new green leaves again, attesting to the recent arrival of spring in the area. There’s a smaller tree left of centre in the foreground behind the fence whose leaves are so new they’re still red. What a lovely assemblage of different shades of green in this photo!
