Up early to make a dart towards Meat Cove. Here is a parting shot of the campground at 7 am.
Grabbed breakfast at the Irvings next to the Canso Causeway. Two ferries had arrived earlier from Newfoundland and the place was packed. The normal deal is everyone races off of the ferry and heads here for fuel and food before hitting the highway to get where their going. Since I have done the same it only made sense to eat here on the way up. The first thing greeting you in Cape Breton is Road Work. Lots of it. So after 20 minutes of chatting to the sign girl I raced to the next road construction site.
The scenery started to improve. Here is Black Brook Cove in the Cape Breton Highlands. The crashing waves were doing a great job of entertaining the visitors.
