Brier Island Nova Scotia

The first thing I noticed was that Brier Island was different. Your alarm clock is a rooster, “the lawn mowers” used are different, too.

Sure enough, the fog was rolling in at the Western Light. 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.

We found a great little burger place next to the general store for lunch. “The Lighthouse Café,” and afterwards drove the rest of the street to the end of the highway.

From here you can get a good view of Peter’s Island.

In the short time we stopped, the fog cleared to get a better view.

After supper we hiked out to Seal Cove and recorded video of the seals on the rocks and concluded with the Northern Light lighthouse in the sunset.
