Cape Breton Island

After leaving Tessa and her kids we bought groceries and then had lunch at Murphy’s in Truro (we gave up on finding the restaurant we had been looking for).  Thanks to Charles (Tessa’s son) who told us Murphy’s was rated #1 in Canada for English style fish and chips. 

We finally got going about 4:30 but it only took 2 hours to get to Cape Breton Island where we plan to drive the Ceilidh and Cabot Trails.  The Cabot Trail is called the most scenic drive in North America and winds for 180 miles. People have warned us to do this drive clockwise as there are sheer drop off’s on the outside and the road is steep and windy in many places. Last night was spent in Port Hood at the Sunset Sands campground (a yikes $34.50) next to the Gulf of St. Lawrence.  It is a beautiful day for taking pictures.
