Cape Breton Island
For the next leg of our adventure we took the ferry from PEI to Nova Scotia. It was a relatively quick boat ride, and saved us some drive time. Once we got to Nova Scotia we made our way over the Canso Causeway into Cape Breton.
I must have taken a million photos as we drove around and stopped at the various look out points. Here are a few of the best:
The natural beauty of this place is so difficult to capture in photos- it's view after view of green valleys, ocean bluffs, scenic villages with lighthouses and farms in equal measure- there's just no way to seize the magnitude of its majesty. I'm so glad I got to experience it firsthand- and I'd definitely like to go back with more time to meander through the park and enjoy all the pristine wildness and magic of the place.
Though by far the loveliest and most serene part of our trip, we did do more than just visit the Cabot Trail. Since Matt's grandfather was a coal miner, we decided to check out the Cape Breton Miner's Museum while we were there. It was so much fun! We got to visit a replica of a typical miner's house, as well as the company store in the village.
