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

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.
