Nova Scotia Fresh Air Inspectors Investigate the Cabot Trail YellowKnife said it best this afternoon. You can have money, or you can have time. You cant have both. As my employment status has recently changed, I all of a sudden have lots of time on my hands in my new position as a Fresh Air Inspector. The hours are long, the pace is grueling and someone has to do it. We had heard reports that there were instances of not so fresh air in the Cabot Trail area of Cape Breton Island. So, armed with this information and being environmentally conscious, we set out for a 3 day Inspection Tour of the Cabot Trail on our low carbon foot print motorcycles. We set about on Monday with SlowPhil in tow, who would only ride with us to Truro. Because of this and the sensitive nature of HIS J.O.B., we thought it best not to take pictures of him. Our first stop of the day was at the Walton Lighthouse on Nova Scotias NoelShore. While we did find some larger vehicles in attendance, the air was truly fresh and the sights quite enjoyable. We continued on. Surely, there was foul air about! We set out towards the community of Old Barnes and stopped at Lighthouse Road. Something was amiss there was no lighthouse! Plenty of fresh air though. The missing lighthouse will need to be reported to the Coast Guard. Not our department. Just doing my job, maam. Looking for Fresh Air! Our day ended with a meal at Vis Restaurant in Whycocomagh, NS. The moon was almost full, the sky was brilliant and of course, the air was fresh. Once the appropriate accommodations were acquired at the Whycocomagh Provincial Campground, we began some Smog Testing by lighting a fire and checking wind currents. Here is photographic evidence that YellowKnife actually was doing his job. More to come for Day Two.
