Cape Tormentine. A time-worn and sea-battered pier stretches, like a finger, into the Northumberland Strait. Once, this place was a bustling ferry terminal for passengers crossing the water from New Brunswick to Prince Edward Island. Now, it sits nearly abandoned, visited only by the fishers who come to try their luck with bringing home some mackerel. Their laughter and friendly banter circle the lonely lighthouse and then joins the wind in a flight across the sea.
