Stormy Evening at Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse

We arrived at Peggy’s Cove last evening just in time for dinner at the long-time seafood restaurant, “Sou’Wester”, situated beside Peggy’s Cove Lighthouse.

The clouds were rolling in quickly but we were fortunate that there was no rain. Although the skies were cloudy and there was a chill in the air, it was an enjoyable place to explore and to watch the waters of the Atlantic churn between the rocks surrounding the lighthouse.

Eva plays in the waves at Black Brook Beach, Cabot Trail, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

On the return trip to the hotel from our second day on the Cabot Trail, we stopped at Black Brook Beach to let Eva play in the waves. This location is one of the most beautiful beaches to take in the ocean views at Cape Breton Highlands National Park. It is bordered by a gentle waterfall on one end and intersected by a freshwater brook.

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.
