Not to clutter your thread Kevin, but your posts are making me wish I was back on the road. A broken foot has kept me off the bike this summer.

Last year at the top of the Cabot trail. (I didn't ride the sportster)




I belive this is in Ingonish too. There was a sharp down hill turn to these fishing boat docks.

I have a very deep non commital relationship with that grave!
I don't even know how to respond to that.

Day 4 Continued-


Back rolling on the asphalt...








...it's not long before...








...we come to Lighthouse Road...








...and a Lighthouse! A reminder of just yesterday & our tour of Lighthouses on PEI.








We didn't even get off the bike. Took in some of the views...







...and then we're back rolling!








We're cutting across the northern...







...tip of Cape Breton...








...headed west...








and climbing!





More in next post.

Day 4 Continued-

This road is a blast to ride...








...I don't know if is always like this...








...it is VERY WINDY. Gusts easily up to 40 mph, probably more...








...but a great road surface, great scenery, and fun, fun, fun!








Another look back...







...and ahead, to more curves!









We're getting close...









...hey, look, a little waterfall...








...to the northwest...







...coast of Cape Breton!






More in next post.

Day 4 continued-

Headed down from the Highlands...







...the views and...








...the road are stunning...








...the pictures don't do them justice.








We come upon some construction. Guys up the side of the hill jackhammering rocks that are breaking loose and tumbling down, being caught by steel mesh before entering the roadway. Crazy!








Headed south now...








...along the west coast...








...a quick look back...








...as we ride this amazing road...








...back toward sea level.






More coming on Day 4, The Cabot Trail, as time allows.

Day 4 Continued-

At sea level again...








...I had a feeling this morning...








...that today was going to be...









...one of "those" days that lifetime memories are made of...









...The Cabot Trail has not disappointed.








Fantastic views...








and superb riding!








Headed toward Cheticamp...








...where we got some gas and Mary did a little grocery shopping.







Back heading south, still along the western coastline.

Day 4 continued-

There is a bit more coastline...







...before we turn inland/southeast, back toward Baddeck.








This sign caught my eye...







Myles from Nowhere. Two old buildings, full of old stuff. Myles, the proprietor, was an interesting guy to talk to. Mary picked out a few things for gifts, and for our home.







We're back rolling...








...toward Baddeck...







...no snow this time of year...








...looks like we'll be on time...







...for our dinner plans with Jerry, J. Carolyn & Dave.





Day 4 concluded in next post.

Day 4 concluded-

This is the view across the street from their motel-








Jerry & J. Carolyn live about 40 miles from Mary and myself. Earlier this year, Jerry and I were both planning a trip up to Nova Scotia (unbeknownst to each other).

After we had both mapped out our trips, we found out that the other had been planning similar trips. We compared notes and realized that we would both be in Baddeck at the same time for about 16 hours...that was the only overlap.

So dinner was arranged.

Dave, a friend of Jerry & J. Carolyn took this photo. L-R Jerry, Mary, Kevin, J. Carolyn








On the two Tri Glides and...








...one Ultra...








...we all made the short trip to a great local restaurant...








...where we all enjoyed a good meal and swapping stories!








As the sun was setting, Mary and I rode the 4 miles back to...








...our home on wheels.






What an amazing day!

Tomorrow we take the 17 hour ferry ride to Newfoundland Island!!!
