    The hostel is part of a cafe pretty central in town. The rooms are spacious and comfy. The hostel staff is fun and helpful and even though the kitchen is small, there is always someone to have a chat and laugh with, makes it the heart of this hostel.

    The cafe was great, really good food at a reasonable price, the salmon and egg breakfast sandwich was delicious! Most of the staff were helpful, and the beds were comfy, but the lock on my locker was broken, and a poor attempt was made to fix it. It's just a fifteen minute walk to the Citadel and town, and whilst the area is a little strange, the hostel felt safe. Could do with more bathrooms, oh and a better cleaner for the ones they do have.

They offer some great advice on places to hike and camp in Cape Breton as well as offering their place to stay in Halifax if I come back this way. We hit up some of the local bars/pubs and sample the great music and maritime ...

    ... day. I did not get pictures because I'm hoping to get to the races one day and will take pictures then. I decided to drive north of Halifax and see what there was to see. I on my travels I came across Bell park and decided to get out and do the nature trail. Other than the wind it was great. The wind did make the pictures of the place turn out good I think. Tonight I went to see the movie Star Trek in the 3D imax theatre here. I loved ...

    All three kids have been holding up so well. A lot of time in the car, lots of walking and late nights could have really worn them down. But overall, they are doing fantastic! Obvisouly, there has been the occasional sibling spat (especially between Nate and Jenn. Ugh!), which is to be expected. However, seeing them come together as siblings, reveling in each others joy of ...

    ... created like most by ancient glacial retreat, has left the granite landscape gouged with giant v-shaped canyons with exposed sheer cliffs more than 2,000 ft tall.

    Driving to Broom's Point we were pleasantly surprised to take in a National Park cultural interpretive with Louise Decker, one of the first women fisherman in the area. She was a vibrant, animated storyteller who had each of us hooked on to her every word as she spoke, in her heavy Newfie accent, ...
