Where we went when he asked for the beach on a blustery day:

The rail car in the front is an old coal car. The windmills in the background adjoin the Lingan coal-burning power plant, the largest power plant in Nova Scotia.

The old schoolhouse is now the visitor information centre, at least in the summer.

The history of Dominion is outlined at this tiny tourist destination.
