Boat ride to Bird Island. Saw lots of puffins

Eagles on Bird Island

Alexander Graham Bell Museum

One of our fellow travelers playing for us at Telegraph Hotel

On Thursday we went to Beddeck, NS and had breakfast at the The Telegraph House which was built in 1861,and is owned and operated by the fourth and fifth generations of the Dunlop Family. It once contained the office of the first Trans-Oceanic Cable Company, some of the first telegraph messages in North America were sent from the office in the "Telegraph House". Alexander Graham Bell's 'Bell room no.1' is preserved in much the same style and charm as it was when staying here in the late 1880's. I do not know if they served the same French Toast when he stayed there but it was the best I have ever eaten. One of our caravaners, Janet, and her brother used to be the opening act for Kate Smith when Janet was a child. She played the piano for us while we were waiting for our breakfast. We shopped in the quaint town and then went to the Bell Museum and learned about the many things that he researched and invented during his lifetime.

On Friday,we went on a boat trip to see the seals and birds in this area including Razorbills, Cormorants, Eagles, Kittiwake, and of course lots of Puffins.
