Travel Blogs from Cape Breton Island
Englishtown Cape Breton Nova Scotia: Its been a big driving day today. We got up early and had breakfast and had left the Travelodge in New Glasgow by 0700. We took a drive through the town but it didnt have a great deal to see, so we hit the highway to get some K's under our belt. We had planned to just do the bottom half of the National Park, so we called in and had a look at Antiginish which was a University town, the Uni was huge. The town ...

The next few days of the tour just continued to offer delights and beautiful views around every corner. After leaving Halifax we drove further up Nova Scotia's coastline, to Jeddore Oyster Pond. Here was a charming little fisherman's cottage, which has become a museum, with the house preserved as it would have been in the 19th century. It was tiny, with whitewashed boards and the view from every window a stunning one of the river, pond or forests. Wildflowers fought for space ...
