Showing Wesley the Cabot Trail

My cousin Wesley came to visit for the long weekend.

He had never been to Nova Scotia before and we had a million things to show him, but just not enough time!

He did take him around the Cabot Trail though!

This might be my favourite place in Cape Breton. Here is Whale Cove:

I have always wanted to go to Meat Cove. It is off the Cabot Trail loop and is at the top of Cape Breton Island on a dead end gravel road.

I have heard so many stories from people (who likely had never been there) about this desolate, isolated town where everyone is related.

Turns out it is breathtaking!! And it really isn’t isolated at all.

Here is the view at Meat Cove. The road ends at the campground you can see in the distance:

After Meat Cove, we stopped at Cabot Landing picnic park for lunch. Wesley and I could not resist tossing off our shoes and socks and running into the ocean!

I haven’t touched the colour in any of these photos. They are stunning au naturel!

  1. yes the colours are beautiful!!! I like going on your little adventures through your blog, I will try to keep up with mine this time around.
    How cold was the water?

  2. The water was cold at first, but we got used to it quickly. If I had my swimsuit I would have went swimming in it for sure! I thought about going in my clothes but it would be a long drive home in wet clothes.
