The Ceilidh Trail

Today was a funny day, the coolest day we have had since leaving home, it was mainly cloudy with a few sunny breaks and the odd shower thrown in. The high was only about 18C, my first day wearing jeans and a sweatshirt.

I had an e-mail from Nancy Robinson that they had checked into a campground near Baddeck so we stopped to see them for a few minutes on our way to tour the Ceilidh Trail and made arrangements to pick them up tomorrow morning to do the Cabot Trail.

We took the Cabot Trail over to Margaree Harbour then headed south on the Ceilidh Trail, a nice drive but the road was pretty rough in spots. We drove into MacLeod’s Campground at Dunvegan where we stayed almost 40 years ago, still a pretty view out over the ocean, and Margaree Island, but not worth $41.40/night for a 15 amp hook-up with no sewers. We drove down as far as Mabou where we had lunch, then came home, a nice drive.

We can’t get the wi-fi at the trailer so are at the clubhouse where it is working fine, just a pain not to be able to do it at home.

And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another great day tomorrow.
