Update & More On Canada Trip ~ Baddeck, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

It has been 8 weeks since my total right knee replacement and I am doing very well... Yes there is still some pain but every day is an improvement.  I had some stomach issues from all the drugs I had taken but that too is improving.  In a few months I will bopping around the place like crazy!!!  Thanks for all the well wishes I sure did appreciate it ♥

I know it is long behind us but I wanted to continue telling you about our summer adventure in Canada with our good friends Elaine & Rick ~ Our time there was exciting and we saw and did so much I just have to share it with you.

We started out the day with an exploring experience along the way ~ the guys decided to take a short cut which would take us along the  Bras d'Or Lake but soon as the road narrowed and the cliffs got higher we realized that our short cut was not a real shortcut but a true adventure.  Soon we were in almost a stuck situation but Ralph & Rick  got us out of it safely.  They managed to get the car turned around on a VERY narrow road and soon we were headed back out of our back road adventure... we can laugh at that now.

OH no we went to far ~ better turn around ~ do we have cell service???
 
Soon we were back on the road and headed towards the town of Baddeck...  Baddeck is considered to be the beginning and end of the world famous “Cabot Trail” and is situated in the heart of Cape Breton Island. Stretching along the shores of the beautiful Bras d'Or Lakes, it is a village in full bloom with a kaleidoscope of colors displayed in baskets, boxes and gardens along its downtown shopping core. Finally we were all hungry and decided to go to lunch at a cute little restaurant called The Yellow Cello
Yummy loaded Nachos ~ The Yellow Cello Cafe' ~ Their take on a Steak & Cheese (YUMMO!)
 
They had a beautiful little marina were we walked out and saw a lighthouse and many beautiful boats.  This was also the marina where we saw the Amoeba Sailing Yacht which you could go out on for a 2 hour cruise around Bras d'Or Lake.  We decided that would be fun but that is for another post.

I somehow missed your last post about the knee surgery, and wondered what had happened to you. I'm glad everything went well for you. :)

Glad you got your photo issue resolved and happy to see you back to blogging again!
Soon your knee will be as good as new :)

Jerry and Suzy said...

Ah yes, knee replacement surgery! Suzy had her left knee replaced in September, and is doing great. Hardly any discomfort at all. She had the other one done 8 years ago, and I had one in 2010. So, dear Donna, we can sure appreciate what you are going through and have gone through. Thanks for more on Nova Scotia. It remains our Holy Grail for a future trip, and you are just continuing to whet our appetites!

Thanks so much!

Elaine and Rick are so much fun, we just saw them in November at Myrtle beach.

Hope your knee heals quickly so you can try and stay up with Elaine and Rick on your next visit. ;c)

I would so freak out...I'm not that adventurous to go on a narrow road like that one. Wow. Good thing you can now laugh at it all...now that you're safely out of harms way.

{{{Donna}}} I was so happy to see you come by Hootin' Anni's
