Cape Breton Adventure

Last week, we drove up to Cape Breton and had a little trip along the western shore.  As the photographs show, there are some beautiful sandy beaches.

It was a hot and humid day, but there was a lovely breeze coming off the water.

We drove along a route which was new to us and the shore was visible across the fields.

In places, there are farms close to the shore.

This is the view (below) from the top of the road above Port Hood.   A popular spot for photo opportunities, as although it was a dead-end, there were a few tourists driving up to admire the view.

We headed to the beach after our drive and enjoyed a walk along the sands.  Away from the area closest to the parking area, the beach was almost deserted.

It was lovely to feel the wind in our faces and the sand between our toes.

We had a cup of tea made with our portable stove and enjoyed a delicious snack before heading home.  The end of a perfect day.
