Jul 28, 2016 - Cabot Trail - the East side

Neil's Harbour- Cape Breton On day 3 we went up the east side to Neil's Harbour There are some hills and corners that are not well suited for Larger Motor-homes with car in tow. The hills are step with hairpin turns, decide wisely! Fun in our car, great road for 2 seat MG, Triumph hair blowing in the breeze. We saw many motorbikes on the road. We stop at Middlehead Trail real warm and sunny, but a nice shaded 2.5 hrs trail. AH, the breeze picked up and by the time we got to the end, the ocean mist was like fog. We watch some the seagulls...

Aug 21, 2007 - Cape Breton Island, NS

Tuesday, August 21, 2007 We entered Nova Scotia yesterday, our ninth and final Canadian province. We awoke to a bright, sunny, crystal clear morning. We drove to Baddeck on Cape Breton Island where we settled into the Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground. We're in mid-August and campgrounds are still quite busy. We have never had a reservation and we have never been turned away or sent to an overflow area. We have been downgraded to no hookups on two or three occasions. The Canadians say American tourism is down because of the rising Canadian...
