Smuggler's Cove

One of the most interesting places to visit in my hometown is Smuggler's Cove, a cave in cliffs of Meteghan, where, during the days of prohibition, rum runners used to stash their barrels at low tide, knowing that it would be safe until the next tide. At the barbershop, if they knew the investigators were listening, they would discuss fabricated activities further down the shore to mislead them.

The cave extends several kilometers inland, and I've heard that people who live inland above the cave can actually hear the ocean waves crashing into shore. You can go in a ways when the tide is low (I never have), but you'd better make it quick!
