Cape Breton

We drove to Cape Breton after leaving Lunenberg. We got to Baddeck and checked into place. There was only one other room rented, which made me think a bit of The Shining. There was only pizza place to eat at, and luckily it was delicious.
While sitting there we overheard this couple talking about their daughter they were going to visit who was the editor of the Mountaineer in Rocky! Theresa said they are from Newfoundland, what a co-in-ki-dink.
Next day we went to local coffee shop, where it seems all the old men in town gather to visit for the morning. I liked listening to the cape Breton accents
We were going to go on the Cabot Trail but it was raining really hard and road was closed in one direction and the highways guy said, the other route was open for time being. This did not sound promising so we looked around Baddeck and then went to Iona to the Highland Village museum. It was outdoors and though was closed, guy said we could walk around. So we did and peered in windows, and thought about how hard and brave the highlanders were to travel across the ocean after the clearances. Also cousin Rhonda's husband from that area!!
We went out for pizza, and were thankful it really was delicious.
Today we drove to Wolfsville. We were going to stay there, but felt we could see everything we needed in the time we were there while still driving back to Halifax, so we did. Went to really good crepe place.
Now we are back in Halifax, at same place we were before, right downtown!
RW has gone to grocery store as he got hungry and I am drinking some coolers that have to be drunk before we leave!
I wish we could have gotten to coal miners museum. There was program on radio about the Westray disaster anniversary which is today. Also when I think of cape Breton I think of Margaret's Museum, I will just have to read about them.
