Cape Breton / Cabot Trail

Cape Breton is where the Cabot Trail is.

Just as we were going to start the trail it started to POUR!
Change of plans... head to Baddeck for the night

Next day... pouring more! But we must continue so over to Louisbourg
I felt like Guy Martin crossing this bridge, the wind was so bad I was almost dragging a knee!

Stopped at Walmart for some rain gear and continued to Louisbourg

Pretty amazing Fort. A french colony used it to fish and ship Cod back to France

The long way back was awesome. Quiet back road and sunshine!

And beach!

Next day was spectacular and we were on the road early for a long day of twisties!

The Road Begins

Cabot Trail pioneers grave. Couldn't read most of them


More wow!

Thatched house in middle of nowhere

Cheticamp. Ignorant at how much French is spoken on the East Coast!

If you ever get a chance to ride Cabot Trail there are some good websites you can check out
