3 days in Cape Breton

  1. My wife and I got back from a very quick three days in Cape Breton. I was born in Sydney, NS, and my family have a farm that they stay at each summer on the western side of Cape Breton.

    We drove up in one day (900 miles), spent three days there, and then drove back in one day. I took about 16 hours each way, making for some long days.

    I just wish we had had more time to do some more hiking. I also fly-fish and was only able to get a few hours one morning fishing for salmon. Last summer I caught two salmon in two days, but this year I didn't even raise a fish.

    A few shots:

    We saw seven moose on the hike. Here are three:
