Westport Cove lighthouse is a bit of a trek down a gravel road but the effort is worth it. While on the island also visit Seal Cove.

If you are touring Brier Island, this is just another lovely stop. We saw seals feeding in the straight along with a multitude of gulls and other sea birds. I liked the image that I capture there so much, that I had it put on a coffee mug. The Martimes are lovely, and I feel that Canada gets more and more beautiful as you travel north. However, no one should be blase about this sweet little place.

This was the loneliest old lighthouse that we saw on our trip. Like time had forgotten this old gem. Truly sad that it has not been kept up... seriously in Ontario we spend $120,000 on a rubber duck to float through Toronto for Canada Day, in Nova Scotia there is not enough money to paint a piece of history. Something is wrong with that.

There is a nice little hike here with a monument to Joshua Slocum, the first person to go around the world in a boat. Unfortunately, like many other Nova Scotian beaches, there is a lot of garbage. Indeed, there is what appears to be a landfill situation here. It would help if people would stop buying water in plastic bottles as there is a lot of that kind of garbage. Still enjoyable and the area could be easily cleaned up.
