Lucy broke camp this morning in Linwood, Nova Scotia. It was still raining off and on as we got ready to depart. About the time we got underway, the rain started in earnest. We made our way through the Nova Scotia countryside and on to Cape Breton Island.

We continued up the west side of the Island to the town of Cheticamp where we had reserved a campsite for Lucy. We arrived in the late afternoon and Lucy settled in. While we were setting up, another Airstream from Arizona appeared in the campsite next to us.

There was still some daylight left, and we decided to take a run into Cape Breton Highlands National Park and ride some of the scenic Cabot Trail. The sites of the mountains and ocean were really impressive.

We even spotted a young Bull Moose making his way across the Cabot Trail. We got some great pictures today.
We didn't make it back to Lucy until after dark.

Tonight's pictures include:

- The view from Lucy's kitchen window this morning.
- Crossing the bridge onto Cape Breton Island.
- Lucy's new friend form Arizona.
- Coming into Cape Breton Highlands National Park.
- Ocean view from the Cabot Trail.
- The Cabot Trail making its way into the mountains.
- The Cabot Trail overlooks the Ocean.
- The mountains meet the Ocean.
- A young Bull Moose makes his way across the Cabot Trail.
- A gorgeous sunset on the Cabot Trail.

I tries posting this last night, but the Internet was marginal. I tried the pictures again this morning. They still won't post. i'll try them again later.

Brian

I have tried posting the pictures again. I have good strong wifi and I can post pictures on AOL. I am thinking that the issue may be with the Forums software.

What a great set of photos! Thanks.

Funny, one can sense the peace and quiet way up there . . .

A spectacular day and sunset. The composition in the fourth shot is great -- that road leading up the hill -- as if inviting the viewer to hit the road again . . . to see what is over that hill . . .





Have a good weekend,

Peter

It is Canada Day here, and the campground has a party atmosphere.

Lucy is still camped in Cheticamp, Nova Scotia. We headed out today to explore the far reaches of Nova Scotia. We drove the Cabot Trail to the North end of Cape Breton Island. We veered off the Trail at Cape North and took the back road through Bay St. Lawrence. We then took the final stretch of unpaved roadway to Meat Cove, Nova Scotia. Meat Cove may not actually be the end of the World, but you can see it from here.

We had a very nice seafood dinner at the only restaurant in Meat Cove with the greatest ocean view in the world. We ate at an outside table high on a cliff overlooking the ocean.
There is also a small campground in Meat Cove. This campground has what has to be one of the greatest views of any campground anywhere.

We had a great time hanging around Meat Cove for a while. We made our way back to Lucy at the campground in Cheticamp to arrive a little before dark. The campground was abuzz with Canada Day Festivities. We partook of the celebration before retiring to Lucy for the night.

Tonight's pictures include:

- Rocks jutting out of Ocean.
- Giant bulldozer working on the Cabot Trail.
- Bay St. Lawrence fishing fleet.
- Guard Goats along the dirt road to Meat Cove.
- Meat Cove from the mountain.
- Meat Cove Campground.
- Ultimate campground view.
- SuEllyn ready for dinner with an Ocean view.
- Meat Cove Campground.
- Scottish Shieling replica. Early settlers in this area built these shelters.

Again, I'm having trouble getting my pictures to load. I'll try again in the morning.


Brian

Hard to argue about that being a beautiful view! Thanks for posting and continuing to share the traveling experience.

Once again, photos from another century in terms of the pace of life IMO.

"Far from the maddening crowds" is a phrase that comes to mind.

Guard goats indeed !!!



Thanks and have a great weekend!

Peter

This is Lucy's third night at the campground in Cheticamp, Nova Scotia. She is getting anxious to move on, so we have decided to break camp in the morning and head out. We think that we will head over toward the bay of Fundy to take in some of the extreme tide fluctuations which are over twenty feet. Lucy will probably be a couple of days on the road getting there.

Today we took a last run out on the Cabot Trail in the National Park. We didn't see any more Mooses, and late this afternoon, the weather started to close in and we started to get some rain.

We made our way back to Cheticamp where we filled Fred with Diesel and took a last look around the town. We went out on Cheticamp Island (which isn't really an island) to see the Enragee Point Lighthouse.

We made it back to Lucy where we started breaking camp and dined on Lobster meat.

Tonight's pictures include:

- Sunlight coming through the rain clouds.
- Royal Canadian Mounted Police crest on the door of a patrol car.
- The 1893 St Peter's Church in Cheticamp.
- Unpaved road to the Lighthouse.
- Cheticamp Harbor.
- Town of Cheticamp across the bay.
- Traffic on the road to the Lighthouse.
- Approaching Enragee Point Lighthouse.
- Ocean side of Enragee Lighthouse.
- Swimming beach at Lucy's campground.

Seeing this places I have been to is making me itch to go back. Rainy weather on the coast has a special appeal to me, though having enjoyed desert air for decades now, I can only take rain for a few days. Nostalgic nevertheless.

Thanks for the ride.

I hope it gets easier to post photos soon. In western Canada (except Vancouver Is.) we always had good wifi at CG's, but doesn't look as good there.

One moose bagged.

Gene

Hi Gene. You are correct. The Internet at the campground in Cheticamp was not real great, and they made you pay extra for it. We're back in New Brunswick and the Internet here is great, and it's included. Go figure. As soon as we got here, the pictures loaded in about fifteen seconds.

Brian
