Aug 3, 2017 - Day 3

Stayed in the campground today. Walked the beach, watched a couple of guys kite surfing. Had a good strong breeze today. They were really moving along. Part of the Chestico Days festivities was a lobster supper held at the MacInnis Sports Centre. Lobster, cole slaw, potato salad, dinner role, melted butter and dessert. Awesome.

Sep 4, 2009 - Sunset Side of Cape Breton Island

The road was very rough in places so we made another stop to get Foxy out for a walk; she does not...

Crossed over the Canso Causeway onto Cape Breton Island this morning Stopped in Port Hastings at a Tim Horton to get coffee and donuts before heading up the coast road. I learned that there is only 800 thousand people in Nova Scotia and half of them live in the Halifax Metro so these little towns a long this coast are few and far between but they all have great views of the Atlantic Ocean.

We stopped for breakfast just before the Canso causeway taking us to Cape Breton Island. It was already starting to rain lightly but still looked as though it could clear up. Our first stop was a little side trip to Port Hasksbury for a few supplies. One thing you always hear is that Cape Breton Islanders are very friendly. I know quite a few that have migrated to...
