We then started to drive The Cabot Trail. The scenery changed from sea level to mountainous terrain with cliff that fell from the roadside down to the ocean. We stopped along the way to look for birds and whales...we saw the former but not the latter. We ate lunch at a bar in a restaurant since there was no room in the dining room ...a bus load of people had taken over all of the tables. We were able to have a great conversation with the bartender who was a very informative Acadian.
We continued to have breath-taking scenery with blue waters of the North Atlantic and great vistas that sometimes had us rising into the fog. We would go from sun to clouds to fog in a matter of minutes. We stopped at 2 different walking trails that took us on boardwalks over bogs and marshes. A waterfall was another of our stops along the Trail.
Our last stop was at Neils Harbour that is a small fishing village on the east side of the Cabot
Trail. We saw crab traps for the first time along with another lighthouse.
On the drive back to Baddeck, we rode on a ferry and enjoyed the full moon.
