Rockin’ the 902: Chimney CornerPosted: October 12, 2012
In love with a place?! Really?!
In the Margaree River Valley, just a short drive west of the Cabot Trail, lies a secluded little spot called Chimney Corner.
This is the choice of local folks not only because of its sheer size, but also its privacy from the road. This gorgeous, clean beach is cradled in a cove, and offers safe swimming with long shallow water areas and great views. It also offers a clean, shallow, fresh water stream which crosses the beach and empties into the Gulf; kids love playing in and around it. There’s Rocky Point to be explored, even in bare feet; the path has been worn smooth by generations of curious traffic. Cape Bretoners travel from Baddeck and Sydney to enjoy Chimney Corner’s perfection. – http://www.margareens.com
It was a cloudy, windy October day when I stopped there. But now I’m in love with the place. This is the beach of my dreams. If I lived on Cape Breton, I think I’d be here all the time.
