Nice

I enjoyed your RR. I have been doing the cabot trail every fall for the last few years... like the leaves. This summer I also hit the Canso area, stayed at the same campground.

It nice seeing different places... gets me through the winter dreaming where my next run will be. So keep writing reports.

And by golly there she was - two rocks mating behind trees. The ride in was fun though.

that is very similar to my hiking style
we should go on one some time. lol I will try to keep up

Great report, I head up there almost every year, my Family has a cottage in Walace, it is acttully the light house that is a cross the bay from rt6. you are bless to live up there year round, well maybe not so much in the winter.

Wow!

Back in 2004 I bought a new WeeStrom. In August of that summer two of my brothers and I rode from southern VT up to Nova Scotia. We spent a lot of our time up on Cape Breton, including riding around the Cabot Trail a couple times, and out to Meat Cove. The great food, fun roads, and friendly people more than made up for the two weeks of rain !

Thanks for refreshing some great memories !

I am willing to hike up to 300 feet almost anytime. Any longer and the red light in my head goes off telling me to abort. you would be surprised at the weather we are having right now - plus 26 Celsius with lots of humidity. Winter will hopefully be kind to us like last year.

Glad you like the report - I feel a little nervous about writing when I look at others who are amazing photographers and writers but I don't mind trying.
I went to Peggys Cove Today - the leaves are changing already! Peggys was socked in with Fog and tons of tour buses.



I think Buddy below is trying to dry out!

Hi Caper

It was similar for me. There were 3 campers including me on sept 12. The funny thing is that the silence was broken in the morning by one guy snoring (not me) loudly.

I had to think he was getting a great nights sleep. Another pic from the campground.

It does look good! :)

Eat at Walton Pub enroute to Burncoat Head Park

Ham and bacon and hamburger and fried onions and all the trimmings and home fries and delicious.



Then direct to Burncoat Head Park for a walk on the Bay of Fundy.

Torbrook Nova Scotia, Fire Road


The temperatures are rising and the level of mosquitoes are too.
The last two days were spent on gravel fire roads like this riding in the Annapolis Valley.
