photoblog image Cape Bear

Cape Bear

This is looking to the left, then the right from one spot at Cape Bear. You cannot get down to these beaches except by boat. I have shown the Cape Bear lighthouse in the past.  It is famous for being the first place to pick up the distress call from the sinking Titanic.  The lighthouse was moved last year as it was very close to the rapidly eroding coast.  I expect the group ran out of money as the lighthouse is in great need of repair.  We saw several birds flying in and out of holes all over the surface.

Is that privately held land down to the beaches, Mary...do the owners have a chain on the gate?
Mary MacADNski: There is no way to get down from these cliffs, no chains anywhere.

These are a great set of pictures.
What a magnificent view. I think tat the erosion might be a big problem around this coast.
Mary MacADNski: Erosion is a huge problem here. Many lighthouses have been moved.
A lovely, peaceful place!
Mary MacADNski: We saw no one on this journey along the coast. In a shot coming up, the only people we saw the whole afternoon.

I hope the Group raise enough money to restore this lovely lighthouse, Mary
Mary MacADNski: I think they must have planned for that as they did the big move. They have not started anything yet though.
Thank goodness they had the sense to save the lighthouse before it fell into the sea, Mary!!!
Mary MacADNski: They moved it quite a way to the left from it's first location - to safer ground.

Yes it looks very prone to erosion
Mary MacADNski: These coastal views will continue till we fall into the sea - hopefully not the before the Sept, 2017 or 18 meet up. Which is it, please?
My king of seascape Mary! I love it.
Mary MacADNski: Very wild with no access.
It has a place in history Mary soi hope they can restore it
Mary MacADNski: They must plan to if they went to the expence to move it. They just have nothing staqrted.
I do like this coastline, not unlike our North Norfolk coastline with crumbling cliffs.
Mary MacADNski: We can usually access the beaches but not here on this piece of shoreline. I like it for that.

It looks delightful. I especially like the lighthouse.
Mary MacADNski: I am sure they will restore it. I see stairs.
i like these images. this square sectioned, chunky looking lighthouse is quite unique to my eyes, Mary.
Mary MacADNski: We have a couple very similar. Here is a link on our lighthouses.

It's a beautiful place, Mary. Is it named for the amount of bears there?
Mary MacADNski: We have zero bears on the island. Perhaps the shape of a cliff at sometime...

No bear? The main picture is an excellent landscape.

Mary MacADNski: Here is an overview of the lighthouses on PEI:

i love the seascapes with the red layered stones along the shore indicative of your beautiful island Mary...
yes... the lighthouse could us some TLC!!
....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: I am sure they are going to fix it as they have built steps and why move it if they were not going to restore it.
Looks as though it could be a wild shore!
Mary MacADNski: It is quite wild and the soil at that end is very sandy.
