Nova Scotia Lighthouses
As a long island like peninsula in Atlantic Canada, Nova Scotia’s coasts have been protected for centuries by several faithful lighthouses. In fact these historic buildings are now landmarks of the touristic Lighthouse Route, a trip to not be missed when visiting this region.
I visited a few if not all of them and here they are – Click on them for a larger format:
#1. Sandy Point lighthouse at low tide in the fog, Shelburne, Nova Scotia (South East of the peninsula)
#2. Pubnico, Yarmouth area
#3, Digby on the Bay of Fundy was the place where we took a small Ferry to go East, so the only light house I’ve seen was this one that was transformed into a restaurant
#4. Briar Island a small beautiful island North-West of Digby on the Bay of Fundy, with a red and white striped lighthouse
… and here is another lighthouse on Briar Island, Nova Scotia, overlooking Fundy Bay
#5. Cape Breton is a big island on the East side of Nova Scotia, with many places to visit and things to see
#5a. The lighthouse of Louisburg, on the South-East part of Cape Breton has helped the sea navigation to the Fortress of Louisbourg, and has been destroyed and restored several times during the battles between French and English during 1730 and 1758 – more on this later…
#5b. The lighthouse at Gabarus, Cape Breton, a small fishing village South-East of the island
I really liked this one, so I made an enhanced version of it:
#5c. Regatta time in front of the lighthouse in Baddeck, Cape Breton, on Bras D’or Lake. * Bras d’Or is the largest inland sea in Canada and it’s 1/3 of the Cape Breton island area.
#6. Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse that you can see in my other post
