Aug 28 Day 89 18kms on the bike – The rest of the day in Rental North Sydney – Fortress of Louisbourg – Ingonish Beach Campground on the Cabot Trail


Started my day early had to pack up to get to the rental place by 830. Biked a short 18 km to Avis & picked up my renegade. First stop the Fortress of Louisbourg – I spent three hours

Exploring the Fort, it was very well done. I had a bowl of pea soup with fresh bread & tea, it was all served in the traditional way with one big spoon in the same dishes that they were used. I was sat at a table with others and had a great chat while we all ate our meals. three of them were from England and a couple from Ottawa. 

On my way to the Cabot Trail I had to stop in Sydney and get a photo with the biggest fiddle.

Then onto the Cabot Trail, I was grinning ear to ear as I climb that mountain in the car. I was so glad I wasn’t on the bike, a.) not feeling well and b.) that was crazy long hill. 

Bluetooth the phone and chatted with Shauna and then my sister Marie as I drove up & up & up & up the hills. I got so distracted with the driving knowing that I didn’t have to get to camp right away and worry about no sunlight I actually ended up getting to camp in the dark and setting up my tent by the light of my flashlight but No worries for the amount of times I’ve set that thing up I think I could’ve done with my eyes closed in the dark. 

It’s pretty easy tent to set up anyway. Now to finish this blog and go to bed.
