Sable Island

Cape Sable Island is the southernmost tip of Nova Scotia. Patiently, I waited for the fog to lift to see Nova Scotia’s tallest lighthouse.  It is the third tallest in Canada at 101 feet.

There was a big shipwreck here in 1860 when the SS Hungarian broke up twenty miles off its course; two hundred people died.  In 1865, the government constructed a 65 foot lighthouse here but it didn’t prove tall enough. In 1923, the current 101 foot lighthouse was built.

The fog has cleared a bit. I can see some shore birds on the rocks at low tide. I’m at Hawk Beach, an important stop for migratory birds and migrating Monarch butterflies.

I think this may be as good as it gets.
