A Dream Beach House
I have a lingering memory of our week at Sanderling Beach House. It is of waking up in the master bedroom and gazing out the full length windows to the sun filtering through the fog and lining the beach grasses with silver. That's just one of many that I will treasure. The house was well designed, with clear views outside, room to be together and apart, a well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. We appreciated the colourful deck chairs (just looking at the range of shades was a treat onto itself) and the sand toys. Helen was very helpful and took a personal interest. The only drawback was the horrendous state of the 1.8 klm. road going in. It was so rough and rocky we felt it hindered our ability to go out and about exploring. Other than that, it was just perfect.

We had a wonderful time at the cottage and in Shelburne!  The only bad thing is to leave!  We can't wait to come back.

 A bit of heaven in Nova Scotia
"Orchard Point" is a total escape from the rapid pace of life today. Beauty, privacy, and tranquility describe the experience. The home is tastefully appointed, clean, and very comfortable. We found everything we needed. Every sunrise and sunset made us reach for our cameras. We enjoyed exploring the pristine coast. Another benefit was the relative proximity of Shelburne with excellent places to eat and a full supermarket. Overall, we had one of the most relaxing vacations ever and would surely go back.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful spot with us - Moose Harbour View Cottage.  The kids loved the beaches, rock climbing/hiking, seals at Keji, rabbits in the grass and simply playing in the wide open yard.

Salvages Lighthouse

The Salvages Lighthouse or Halfmoons Lighthouse is visible on a clear day from the Blanche Beach


The Salvages are a line of rocks, nearly 3 kilometers long situated on the southern side of the approach to Negro Harbour.  Locally, the rocks are know as The Halfmoons, due to the crescent-shaped arrangement of some of the rocks. 

As the southeast side of the rocks are steep, approaching them at night or during thick weather is a dangerous undertaking.  In 1915 a fog alarm was built upon a rock near the southern end of The Salvages that rose approximately 3 meters out of the sea. 

Because of its exposed location, the fog alarm building was built of concrete with walls 41 centimeters thick to withstand the pounding of the North Atlantic. 

Thank you to the Lighthouse Friends web site for this information.  Please visit their web site for more information about the light keepers.
