We took our Volvo off roading…
out to one of the very tips of our province, to Cape d’Or.
Cape d’Or is located at the north point of the entrance to the Minas Basin.
There are dramatic 200 m cliffs on the western side and 30 m cliffs on the southern side overlooking treacherous tidal currents in the Minas Channel. The Cape was named by French explorers (Cape of Gold) because of the bright copper deposits. Most of the Cape is heavily forested, but the areas beside and above the lighthouse are cleared and grassy providing excellent long-distance views in good weather.
There is also a restaurant and accommodations at this point which in my opinion would make a relaxing getaway! Could you imagine watching the sun rise and set in such a place?
