    Coal Miners

    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.

    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.

    Just off the Cabot Trail, Neil's Harbor Point

    Scenic Neil's Harbor Point

    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.

    Fort Louisburg

    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.

    Bras D'or Lake

    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".
