Shore from Cap-le-Moine
Photo 13 of 25: Shore from Cap-le-Moine
Taken 2005 July 1 from the Cabot Trail at the look-off at the bottom of the hill climbing into Cap-le-Moine
GPS 46°30.185'N 61°04.389'W

On the Cabot Trail driving north beyond Terre-Noire, just before climbing the hill into the community of Cap Le Moine, there is a parking area on the left from which this photo was taken, looking to the south. It gives a good close-up look at the cliff structures that line this area of the coast (and many others along the southern Gulf Coast). The mountains here (not visible in the photo) are from 1 to 3 km (.5 to 2 mi) back from the shore, leaving room for farms along the littoral. As can be seen from this photo, below the Margaree River mouth, the mountains get considerably closer to the shore.

The point in the middle ground to the middle right of the photo is MacKays Cape, which lies somewhat below the mouth of the Margaree River at Belle-Côte/Margaree Harbour. In the far distance behind MacKays Cape one can see Sight Point below Inverness. Margaree Island, recently celebrated in Duncan Hugh MacLellan’s memoir An Innis Aigh: My Life on Margaree Island (ISBN 09737316-0-5), can be seen in the middle right of the photo in the middle far distance.
