Cape Pine + Arnold's Cove Excursion

Michelle's father was the main lighthouse keeper at Cape Pine and her family lived during her early childhood. Arnold's Cove is a sheltered sandy cove located within a short walking distance from the lighthouse. 

Cape Pine lighthouse was built in 1851 and designated a National Historic site in 1974. It is situated just a few kilometres east of St. Shotts. 

Automated in 1996, the light at Cape Pine still shines bright inside its 60 ft tower which has the distinction of being the oldest cast iron lighthouse in all of Canada.

Your host Michelle Myrick was born at Cape Pine and spent the early years of her childhood there until her father built this house in 1972 that her and her husband have renovated as The Keeper's Kitchen.

Just below Cape Pine lighthouse lies a beauty secluded sandy beach called Arnold's Cove. The river which runs down to the sea is where Keeper's children learned how to swim for decades.

The beach is a perfect spot to enjoy the tranquility of the cove and the rolling of the tide while having a 'mug-up' (nutritious lunch included with tour).
