This was our third visit to Mary's Point, but as we were about two weeks before the migration season started, there were no birds to be seen. Nevertheless, this was the first time we were able to walk along the lovely sandy beach.

We came here by chance after asking the information clerk at Riverside-Albert if there were any attractions which did not charge an admission fee. Mary's Point is out of the way - for humans, but directly on the migration path of hundreds of thousands of...More

Mary's Point, and the beach, is a short little easy hike - well, really a stroll from the parking lot. The site is of historical interest because there used to be a stone quarry here. There is no evidence of the quarry, except for some...More
