Cape Breton: Textural Diversity of the Shoreline

There are many tucked away cobble and sandy beaches between the rocky outcroppings along the shorelines of Isle Madame. A visual feast of shifting textural beauty.

Sadly, the lighthouses are being decommissioned and are slowly disappearing off the island, replaced by lit channel markers.

This lobster fishing boat was accidentally run aground on a sandbar. It  returned to service at high tide the following day.
