Interesting Boat Day

We sailed towards McNab’s Island today and took a hike around. We picked up some Snails (Escargot) on the beach. I will cook them tonight.

In the distance we noticed a Lighthouse located on Maugher Beach also known as “Hangman’s Beach”. We learned the Navy during the Napoleonic War in the mid 1700’s  hung bodies of executed mutineers as a warning to crews of ships entering the harbour.


  1. Thanks for the photos (and gruesome history lesson). I hope Hurricane/Tropical Storm Henri doesn’t eventually wend its way to Nova Scotia…
