Aug 4, 2017 - Day 4

We drove back up to Inverness today. Wandered up and down the beaches collecting beach glass. Glass that has washed up on shore that has been polished by the waves and sand. On the way back, we stopped at the Glenora Distillery. Makers of single malt whiskey. WOW! They're gift shop prices were something else. We couldn't help ourselves and had to get a couple samples of single malt whiskey cake, (we'll get back to you after the taste test). It sure is dry around here. The grass is already burnt. Need some rain.

2017 Maritime Trip

Aug 1, 2017 - Day 2

Walked the local beach. Sophie loves the water. One would think that she likes the salt water better. Drove up to Inverness and toured around. On the way back we checked out where we were going to stop for supper. The Red Shoe Pub came highly recommended. After we "rolled" out of there, we couldn't agree more. Fantastic food, service and local entertainment.

2017 Maritime Trip

Aug 9, 2013 - Birthday

Today we finished a three-dinner celebration of Sue’s birthday. It began with our drive around the Cabot Trail and dinner at Sunset Resort. Yesterday, her actual birthday, the plan was to have dinner at the Cabot Links Golf Course Restaurant that overlooks the course and the Gulf of St. Lawrence beyond. Unfortunately, I decided that no reservation was necessary. So we ended up having dinner in the bar on the lower level of the building. The food was still good. We followed that up with a walk on the Inverness boardwalk that runs between the...

Aug 7, 2013 - The Cabot Trail

Today was Cabot Trail Day. We got started at about 9:15 and made a stop at the Margaree Junction Visitor Center where the lady was very helpful and a German immigrant gentleman sang Happy Birthday to Sue. Armed with a map of the Cabot Trail and a descriptive brochure we headed toward Baddeck. The Trail joins highway 105 near Baddeck and follows that route for about twelve miles before heading toward Ingonish. We have driven the trail before but memories were vague and I was surprised at how little of interest we were finding as we drove to...

Aug 5, 2013 - The Road

The entrance to MacLeod’s Campground is on a dirt road. It is about a half mile down the road from highway 19. The dirt road continues past the campground for about five miles to the south before returning to 19. The dirt road proved to be a good choice for a long run today. Although a little rough in spots the road has some nice views along the Gulf of St. Lawrence. As it nears route 19 the road passes St. Margaret of Scotland Church in Broad Cove. It was a nice run.

Aug 3, 2013 - Ferry Trip to Nova Scotia

We have arrived in Nova Scotia. We took the ferry from Woods Island, PE to Caribou, NS. Because we could not get a guaranteed reservation on the 11:30 ferry, we decided to spend the night at the ferry dock in Woods Island and made a reservation on the 8:00 a.m. ferry. We left the Marco Polo Campground at 4:00 in the afternoon and drove the See Ya to Charlottetown and parked in a parking lot that we had spotted during our visit on Wednesday. We had dinner at Boston Pizza and then saw the movie “The Heat” at the theatre near where we had...

Jul 4, 2011 - No Such Place as Margaree

This weeks adventure takes us to Dunvegan, Cape Breton at the MacLeod's Beach Campsite. It was about a 2 hour drive. As my daughter is not the best traveler, as in 'are we there yet?', she doesn't use that term. She says, 'how many more MINUTES'. She knows how her Dad 'loves' hearing this every few minutes, she now plays a game (between her and I). She will say, what number is showing on the dice (hanging from the rear view mirror) and I will say about 45! We also used our GPS on this trip. Wicked awesome toy! She actually knew where we...

Jul 15, 2009 - Pilot Whales

We walk down to the beach. Last nights’ wind has changed direction completely and is now blowing straight on to the beach which is making it very cold. We find shelter in the sand dunes and then bask in the heat haze from the hot sand. After popping into town for some supplies we head down to the towns “supervised beach”. Here there is a cafe on the front and we eat our food on the beach. As we are sitting there we spot some pilot whales out to sea. They don’t come in very close as the waters here are quite shallow. We head back to the...

We returned safely to Plattsburgh NY on the evening of 8 Oct. While Bob...

Jun 24, 2006 - Saturday

Saturday 62406 Into everyone's life, chance plants an off day. Today was our turn to get one. First, we awoke to extreme fog. Visibility only about 200 yards. We waited as long as we could but had to tough it out and drive to the Ferry at Wood Island. It was about 60 miles of nothing to see but a white line to the right and one or two yellow ones to the left. When we arrived at the Ferry, we could not see the loading ramp even though we were at the front of our row. Finally, car lights appeared out of the fog and the ship was being...
