Cape Saint Mary’s

Daily Image - 2 March 2012 - Cape Saint Mary's

Cape Saint Mary’s marks the separation of the Gulf of Maine from the Bay of Fundy and also the entrance to Saint Mary’s Bay. On the inland side there is a deep, shallow bay which contains Mavillette Beach Provincial Park, with its magnificent sandy beach. Behind the beach is a huge expanse of salt marsh, home to a highly diverse population of both resident and migratory birds.

Caught on a day of spotty sunshine, the buildings on the point sparkle and shine like tiny gems.
