East Quoddy Head is at the northern tip of Campobello Island. The narrow peninsula breaks into a series of islands separated from one another at high tide. The light station is on the furthest north of these.
A simple gravel tombolo connects the first of these smaller islands with the rest of Campobello.
The humpbacks were fishing in the bay, occasionally surfacing and blowing. It was easy to hear them; harder to get pictures of them.
East Quoddy's American counterpart is West Quoddy Head, where I watched the sun rise this morning (hshipman: West Quoddy Head).
