Nova Scotia is all of what we had hoped and then some.....we did very little research .... just got in the 'moving roadblock' and drove towards the sunrise....... initially, we planned for 4 days here.....but soon learned that we needed at least a week....and now we find that we need TWO weeks. We need not rush thru these days....we have no schedule, no plan and nothing but time.
And there is a lovely yarn shop nearby ....with plastic wool on the hoof.
It's time to go back to the map. We are at the southern end of the Cabot Trail ( yellow)....near a very large scenic salt water lake. Yesterday, we headed out in the mist and fog and followed the Bras d'Or lake on the green road towards the Northeast to Sydney. That area was once a vibrant industrial complex and cod fishing center. Now, it is rather gritty and unexciting. You can catch a ferry to New Foundland if you so desire.Our destination was the Fortress of Louisbourg....30 min south of Sydney.
It is very well done with real sheep and
before we drove home along the lake..............
