The Cabot Trail is a 298 km scenic highway on Cape Breton Island. It completes a loop around the northern tip of the island; calling it scenic is an understatement.
It’s consistent extreme ups and downs is very difficult on vehicles, especially our old motor home.

From Cheryl’s journal: “Start of the Cabot Trail. Went to Port Sydney just to take pictures with the largest fiddle. Stopped at a beach Black Brook. Went swimming. It had quite an undertow. Half the beach was in my bathing suit. Beautiful scenery and beaches. Tried a couple of campgrounds but all were full. Forgot about the long weekend. BC day and NS day.”
Inverness got its start with coal mining, but is currently famous for its two world class golf courses.

From Cheryl’s journal: “Got to Inverness about 4:00 and decided to pull into an abandoned (we hoped) parking lot. Went out for dinner. Found a place that would cook us a live lobster. $80 for 2. I would have to say that it wasn’t worth it. Thought it would be cheaper. Although we got the whole lobster and not just the tail. The tail was pretty chewy. The claws were nice.”
From the journal: “Went for a walk down to the beach. They had a boardwalk that went through the dunes. It was a long sandy beach. Beautiful! On either side of the boardwalk there was a golf course too.
Saw a moose today (second for me, first for Marcel as he was driving for the first one and missed it).”
