This is the view we woke up to this morning. Kelly’s Mountain near Sydney, Nova Scotia.
As you can see, the fall colours are at their peak, and continued to captivate us during today’s drive.
Beautiful as it was, I found myself missing Newfoundland and Labrador. The landscape there is so vast and wild, with more trees, mountains and coastline than people. Here there are rolling fields, cattle and sheep grazing, and plenty of towns with gas stations and coffee shops.
We discovered too late that the Celtic Colours International Festival is on now in Cape Breton. How wonderful it would have been to attend a ceilidh! Another trip perhaps.
We skirted away from the TransCanada highway to explore some coastal communities and we considered taking the ferry to Prince Edward Island but our timing was off for that too.
We did stop in Tatamagouche to visit some shops.
And we came across this delightful lighthouse in Wallace Harbour.
And this was our view of Prince Edward Island in the distance.
We also came across a lavender farm in Seafoam (yes, that is a real place).
And drove past Denmark!
You never know where your adventures will take you 😁
