This rope has been here since at least 2011 and still does the trick. It helps you descend (and ascend) the final bit of the walk to Squally Cove. The devious among us like to pull it up before the last person grabs it. Girls just want to have fun.
This log is another improvement on the same trail: steps carved into a log on-site. I think this trail was quickly created when there was a shipwreck in the cove and access was needed.
This view from the lighthouse shows the rolling hills of Deal Island and in the foreground the remains of the upper compound where two to three families lived. The superintendent (boss) lived two miles away but had a good view of the lighthouse from his front step.
