Cape Breton Living Photo of the Week: Chimney corner BeachChimney Corner – While out on a road trip, we eventually found Chimney Corner Beach a few miles before Margaree Harbour along the Shore Road on the west coast of Cape Breton Island. With the help of Google Maps we were able to find roughly the whereabouts of this beach and take a chance that one particular dirt road would take us to this beach. chimney Corner Beach After driving only a couple of minutes on this dirt road, to our excitement we came to one of the most spectacular beach that Cape Breton has to offer!  At one end of the beach, there is a massive landmark column of rock named “The Chimney” after which Chimney Corner was named. From a bit of research  I learned that at one time the Chimney was a vertical square column of rock, but over the years, the Chimney leans more and more to the Northwest due to erosion and weathering. We spent a couple hours walking and exploring the beach and the rocky cliffs where we even found some fossils in the rocks. So glad we found this place…
