Cape Breton Island

We didn't get to see much of the northern tip of Nova Scotia on our way to Newfoundland, so we stayed a few days longer when we got off the ferry from Newfoundland.  We toured the Cabot Trail, a scenic highway that goes around Cape Breton Island, and saw some more sights.  Very pretty.

It really is a beautiful drive.  Lots of motorcycles out there two, enjoying all the curves.

One of many scenic overlooks

With a heavy Scottish and Irish immigrant population, this area retains a lot of those tradtions from the old country.  Here, we got to sit in on a "kitchen party", which is really a jam session they hold at restaurants, inns, pubs, pretty much anywhere people gather.
