Halfway through our trip
Today marks the halfway point of our Eastern Canada trip. We are currently recalculating our trip plans because our ferry to Port-aux-Basques, NF was canceled due to ferry malfunctions. We could have gone on a later ferry that is planned for 5 this evening, but that wouldn't give us enough time to drive across Newfoundland to St. John's for our ferry back to Sydney on Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. Actually, the ferry I reserved from St. John's back to Sydney was canceled as well. So yeah we're not going to Newfoundland...I guess we'll have to plan a whole trip for Newfoundland and Labrador next summer. So now we're going to be able to spend some more time on Cape Breton Island today and then continue on to get back to New Brunswick a little early and do some more stuff around there. Today we're going to try and go to the Alexander Graham Bell Historic Site here on Cape Breton Island and then we'll drive around the Cabot Trail on the northwest section of the island and possibly go on a bird or whale tour. For more details about each day of our trip so far, check out the link in my previous post or on the side of this page.
