Video: Baddeck, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

Baddeck is situated in the heart of Cape Breton Island, considered to be the beginning and end of the world-famous Cabot Trail. Set on the shores of the great inland sea known as the Bras d’Or Lakes Baddeck is a bustling village that maintains it’s essence as a quaint community.

We only just arrived in Baddeck last night (after a 5 hr. 15 min. drive via the Confederation Bridge from Charlottetown, PEI) but that didn’t discourage me from getting up just after sunrise to capture this aerial footage of beautiful Baddeck.

Covehead Harbour Lighthouse

After eating at Richard’s Fresh Seafood this evening in Covehead Harbour, we walked about 2 minutes down the road and explored the site of the Covehead Harbour Lighthouse. The sun was descending low in the sky and there was such a beautiful golden hour glow forming when I took this photo.

Built in 1967 and located beside the entrance to Covehead Bay, this lighthouse is located inside the Prince Edward Island National Park. There is a plaque on the side of the lighthouse describing the Yankee Gale and remembering those who perished in the storm. There is a path across the dunes to the beach. Enjoy a nice walk but confine your swimming to the superivised areas for your safety. The undertow can be strong, dangerous and unpredictable.
