More Cape Breton

Day 6:  More of the Same

Much of today was spent travelling rather than sight-seeing, but we did manage to get a few pictures.







A couple of food highlights from the day:  Bologna was one of the meat choices on the menu for breakfast this morning.  I’ve eaten bologna before, but I’ve never seen it on a menu.  It was very tasty, more meaty and flavorful than what I’ve had before.  And we had read about the Chowder Trail Passport before leaving home, and although we’ve sampled a lot of chowder in the past few days, restaurants on the Chowder Trail had eluded us.  Not so today.  We now have our passports, and our first stamps!  I highly recommend the chowder at the Red Shoe Pub in Mabou.


In closing, if you ever decide to visit Cape Breton, allow several days for your visit.  There are museums, galleries, artisans, hiking, whale watching, fabulous food, and awesome scenery.  We only sampled a tiny bit of what the area has to offer, and we’ve encountered the friendliest people!  I think I’ll try to get a job with the Chamber of Commerce.

Hope you’re enjoying your week as much as I am.  Sunny
