Our friend Martin Smith, who lives on the other side of the harbour near Fort Point, gave us this beautiful nautical chart of the south coast from Lockeport to Cape Sable. It is published by The Canadian Hydrographic Service. Here's a detail, of McNutt's Island in Shelburne Harbour.The chart is a little bit out of date. There is no longer a public wharf at Carleton Village, on the west side of the harbour opposite the island. It blew away in some storm and was never rebuilt. There may still be a cable below the western way, dating from the 1940s, but if it's still there it does not bring electricity to the island as it did during the days of Fort McNutt.
