Trans Canada, or as far as we want...
The adventure begins. An idea first suggested in our time in England in the rain, now researched, and underway. We'll go at our own pace, see what we want along the way, and will go as far as we want, or all the way. What better way to see it, especially with the existence of the Trans Canada Trail. So this page will have pre trip information, and then stories and photos from along the way. Its not far.... really...
Tim looks ahead and sees whats coming - the long and winding road (do doo, do doo)
The rocky coast on the way north towards the Cabot trail. Green grass, rocky shore, winds and rain, we could be in Ireland or Scotland.
But the views are worth it. Keep your eyes peeled for whales (in the water), Moose on the road or forests, and even a bear and her cubs!
Nick climbing one the many hills. They have up to 18% grades on some of the hills here.
The whale watching experience was made even more special by this pilot whale jumping about 5m from the boat. Ya gotta be quick!
Well this little patch looked like the Scotish highlands - the name of the national park, but that was the only little bit. Nice though!
And in front of come of the amazing Cape Bretton scenery. Lots and lots of pilot whales, no blue whales or humpbacks tho.
A mother and her baby. The whales would come up right next to the boat - you could pat them if you wanted.
A nice Atlantic beach... who would have thought? The east side of the island is all about coast views, coves and beaches. Beautiful!
One of the many scenic views from the road. That is when your not working your arse off going up, or doing 70km/hr down.
Nick takes in the view from the top of Smokey Cape - the easiest of three big hills in the park.
Swimming anyone? It is warm enough still, but we had too far to go this day.
