Is it time to start getting excited? It's been nine years since we drove Down East for three weeks. We toured quite a bit of New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Cape Breton (northern Nova Scotia). Despite the fact that it was a fairly long vacation, we still ran out of time and didn't really get to do mainland or southern Nova Scotia.
It was a great trip, and it's been in our minds that we would get back there someday. So, when our old friends from Sarnia moved to Yarmouth, we decided that we could kill two birds with one stone: visit our friends and return to the East Coast.
This won't be a long vacation, just a week, but we're looking forward to it. We'll see the Atlantic Ocean again and lots of fishing-related places like the one following picture, I expect. Or maybe not; we'll see where the road and our friends take us.
This is Neil's Harbour in the northern part of Cape Breton. We loved Cape Breton and the Cabot Trail. I don't know if we'll get back there again this time, but I'm sure we'll enjoy whatever we do wherever we go.
Note: today I decided that when all else fails, I would try to post a photo per day (or most days) along with a short commentary, and this is the first. I often don't know what to blog about anymore for two reasons: (i) with well over a thousand posts in the bank, I don't always know what to add; (ii) my brain is turning to mush since my most stimulating activity has become changing "poopies". But, I do have pictures and promise that they won't always be of Nikki Dee and Zach. I don't suppose that I will really post a picture every day, and I also suppose that I will still find other things to add from time to time, but the concept may help me to post more regularly (or not) as I seem to be going through fits and starts lately.
