Jun 7, 2017 - lesson in lobster lore

It was 3:30am with a tiny pink strip of light on the east horizon when the lobster fleet started to file out for their days work.

It was a beautiful morning so a team decision was made to just hang out and enjoy the sun today.

Day 15, August 27, 2012, Cape Breton: The Ceilidh Trail (6 photos) Cape Breton roads are identified by trail names; Ceilidh indicates the Scots heritage that is very evident around here. Leisurely drive today following the Cape Breton Artisan Trail Map that Sue found. Sue purchased hand-dyed yarn and fabric from local artisans. Steve and Parker enjoyed the views of the Atlantic. Stopped early at a campsite, crowded for our tastes but with access to a nice Cape Breton beach.
