A watercolour by Helen Griffin. Looks like Mace Point to me.

1. "In the late forties Helen Griffin (1916-1984) first came to Savary with her husband Tom and daughter Anne. The family rented the Stoddart cottage just beside their close friends Tony and Dorothy McIntyre. …
These books were diaries, sketches for later paintings, and travelogues. She would write recipes in them, notes from lectures, grocery lists and once the semblance of a will.
But most of the work was drawing. … They show her first works, some in ballpoint pen, tentative, and her last paintings, full of confidence not just in her talent but also in her vision."
