The Red Island Trail
Relatively easy and takes you down to the ocean and pebbly beach to a pristine unspoiled spot which makes you feel like you are on a deserted island. This trail is located at the St. Ann’s Bay United Church about 10 minutes from our house.
St. Ann’s Bay Look off
Accessible from the TransCanada about a mile up the road from exit 12 (going toward Sydney) on a Clear day you can see for miles! There is a lot of history in the St. Ann’s Bay area.
The Fortress of Louisbourg
I believe this is one Historic place NOT to be missed on a trip to Cape Breton! A huge reconstruction of the original 1700′s site is most exciting on a misty day when it seems to appear from nowhere as you enter the area.
Driving through the St. Peter’s/ Arichat area
Can be very rewarding with amazing pastoral scenery, fishing villages and the famous Locks at St. Peter’s – the very first ever built in Canada.
Fall Colours in Cape Breton
The season is a highlight with week after week of increasing beauty. And while the temperatures dip I’m still holding on to thoughts of summer!
