    Loved stopping by Spencer's Island. The main thing there is a gift shop called Sun Moon and Stars. It's run by a delightful woman and features an artsy and eclectic mix of fun items, from antiques to bumper stickers.

    This is a must-see Bay of Fundy item if you like the outdoors and views from cliffs of interesting coastal rock formations and love to walk. There isn't anything dangerous in getting to or hiking the Three Sisters or Squally Point. The Eatonville Rd. is the only way to get there now as the Apple River Rd. from West Apple River to Eastonville is blocked at Edgetts Beach, as that road was subject to blockage by high tides... though that still wouldn't be dangerous. Unfortunately, google maps doesn't mark the Edgetts Beach blockage clearly, however, the google map directions will take you through West Advocate Harbour and the Eatonville Rd., which is the correct way currently.

    The Eatonville Rd. has been graded (it is dirt) over the last two weeks (about May 5th, 2024) and it is now level while rocky, but all ruts and mud holes are gone. I recommend at least a small SUV with some clearance and be prepared to go slow, but it is safe even for regular cars, if you are careful. There is ample room for passing cars coming from the opposite direction in most spots and you will see traffic coming. Be courteous.

    The local hike, right from the Eatonville Day Use Park, is even easy walking with graded and mostly level trails, to see the nearby (within 1.5 km) viewpoints of the Three Sisters and Squally Point. It is mostly level and graded with a few minor challenges. Venturing beyond that on foot towards Elliot Brook, Green Point and all points south of that will require a good level of fitness as although paths are clear and well worn and marked, they are full of rocks, roots, and muddy spots that are difficult to traverse without getting your boots wet.

    Contact me if anyone would like some local guidance. I live nearby.

    This isolated island is quite a sight to see from Advocate Harbour. It's near the entrance to the Minas Basin near Cape Chignecto and is almost two miles long. It has an interesting history: the Mi'kmaq used the island to make stone tools before Europeans arrived, and in 1604 Samuel de Champlain called it Isle Haut, which means High Island in French. The 300-ft high basalt cliffs are the result of volcanic eruptions in the Jurassic Period. There are tales of buried treasure and ghosts. Advocate Harbour offers boat tours of the island.
