Canada - Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

semi-overcast 21 °C

Torrential rain appeared just as we were leaving Halifax, and as we jumped in the car to go we found out we have a flat battery... Lucky our buddies had some jump leads, and Paul and Dave braved the downpour to get us on the road again!

The day cleared for some great views out over Cape Breton, the northern tip of Nova Scotia, and we passed through some small outpost fishing villages. During our first night camping in the park we had some mice living in the campground toilets, not to mention some spiders! The following night we hit a beautiful camping spot at Meat Cove, perched on a cliff over the ocean, and we met an Australian couple who were great company around the campfire who shared their wine with us as we star gazed on the open sky.

The following day we were on the look out for moose and walked the Skyline Trail walk. The fact that a bear had recently been spotted in the area made Lucy a little nervous, but didn't stop us from doing the trail. We were rewarded with a gorgeous view out to the ocean across undulating cliffs, and promptly soaked with a downpour on our return trip...and didn't spot a moose!

That evening we avoided the rain and spent the evening in a local pub in Cheticamp, enjoying some hearty pub food and a few games of and pool.
