We were quite lucky in LOISBOURG. We were able to 'ATTEND THE CONCERT OF 'THE COAL MINERS CHOIR' (WHO HAVE TRAVELLED ALL OVER TO GIVE CONCERTS OF THEIR SONGS) They were in town for 1 night only and we were lucky to get tickets as the theatre was full.
There are many beautiful wooden churches in nova Scotia , and I always loved the one in Ingonsih . In front is a sign inviting in any one who would like to pray.
One of my favorite drives is from Baddeck to Ingonish . Just look at the scenery. What can I say . Take your time to pull over and enjoy. I love it in autumn but it is just a pretty in summer.
This little provincial park, on top of a hill in Irish Cove, is a great place to stop and have a picnic. You can find some sheltered tables here and a beautiful view of the Bras d'Or Lakes.
Of interest in this museum is local fishing history, life in Main-à-Dieu, artifacts from shipwrecks and replicas of boats.
Many people stay strictly on the Cabot Trail and miss gems like Neil's Harbor, which offers up not only a good glimpse at the mighty Atlantic Ocean but also a quaint Nova Scotian Lighthouse as well.
Some more of the buildings within the fortress complex. We took a guided tour which explained what a lot of the buildings would have been used for as well as some of the history of the place.
We stopped at this area as apparently there were supposed to whales around here. We didn't spot any this day unfortunately.
We passed this lake on the way to Fort Louisbourg and decided to stop for a while to admire the view. In English the name means "Arm of gold".
Me and my two cousins just having a little fun at the end of the Cabot Trail! No prizes for guessing which one is me though!! ;)
