Brier Island

We Arrived on Brier Island

I've wanted to go to Brier Island for months. 
The sea glass here is supposed to be incredible! 
First Stop---
Western Lighthouse

Western Light marks the spot where the Bay of Fundy officially begins! 
The waters South of here are the Gulf of Maine and the waters North are the  Bay of Fundy.

As the most westerly point in all of Nova Scotia the lighthouse is the perfect spot
 to enjoy the sunset over the world famous Bay of Fundy.

Historical Western Light is the 3rd oldest lighthouse in Nova Scotia 
and still operational today through a fully automated system.

This lighthouse was built 3 times. Last time, in 1944 it was rebuilt using concrete. 

Beautiful sunsets, the last (most westerly) sunset in Nova Scotia.

"Here lies the ever growing rock pile,
Chuck on a rock, make a wish
and may good fortune come your way. 
Do at ones own risk."

Aisling and I had a great time at the Western Lighthouse!

Northern Light & Alarm 

Northern Light & Alarm is a functional lighthouse and Coast Guard station
 on the headland at Northern Point overlooking miles of Atlantic ocean.

Our walk to see the seals. 
If you look closely, you'll see their little heads out there.

Haha!! This is Aisling's reaction based on events in Yellowstone Park 
with a baby bison in the summer of 2016.  

Sea Urchin that's been eaten for a sea birds lunch. 

Peter's Island Lighthouse

Peter's Island stands guard at the mouth of Grand Passage which flows between Brier Island and Long Island. 
The lighthouse on Peter's Island has welcomed ships to Westport Harbour for generations.

The island itself is now a bird sanctuary and the lighthouse is automated.
