Once across the causeway we had to wait for the bridge to turn to let a yacht through.
Can't stop taking pics of the beaut colours of the leaves this time of year.
Found an RV Park near Baddeck that was closing the next day (that seasonal thing again), allowed us to stay for only $15. We were the lone rangers, no neighbours whatsoever. Had the Park all to ourselves. Still bloody cold!
Next morning we headed off on our scenic drive along the world famous Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island's stunning coastline. Weather turned bad, which is quite common in these parts apparently
Arrived at Antigonish, Nova Scotia, fairly late in the afternoon with no idea where we were going to stay. Stopped for groceries etc., and a very kind lady (Laurie) offered for us to follow her in her car to the local Whidden RV Park. Yep, office closed, looks like it is closed for the season. Phoned the owner, he was kind enough to come in and give us a spot for the night. Yes, he actually closed his park on October 15th. Fuelled up here at Antigonish. Well, $350 later, the young guy at the counter had never seen so much fuel go into a vehicle there. In the USA, the same amount of fuel would have cost us about $240 max.
Headed off again the next morning. On our way back through New Brunswick to cross the Confederation bridge to Prince Edward Island. Photos of our trip across the 14km long bridge with a toll of $50. We are currently at Marco Polo Land RV Resort at Cavendish on PE Island. Again, we are the only campers here. Very peaceful. Have great views of the ocean.
Paid a visit to Green Gables at Cavendish. Interesting to be at the house that inspired the setting for 'Anne of Green Gables'
Have been housebound for the last couple of days as the weather is pretty yuk, and our Suzi bike is not well. Doesn't want to go. Good chance for us to catch up on some reading, and of course the Travel blog. Hope you are all enjoying it. We love sharing our adventure with you.
Leaving here tomorrow, heading towards Quebec. About 17 more days until we head back into the U.S. and down the coast to Florida, where it is hopefully much warmer..
