The Great Trek - Week 3: Canada's Ocean Playground

Published by on

Cape Breton Island was awesome with its beautiful winter scenery! (Perhaps next trek we will choose virtual weather too.) We crossed the Canso Causeway late on Thursday and spent the night in Mulgrave, then headed south and east along the coast to Guysborough. Greg, our coffee aficionado, was delighted to discover, in the small community of Guysborough, The Full Steam Coffee Company, which shares building space with a bakery – an unalloyed olfactory treat!



Next day we headed out on the Guysborough Nature Trail. “A sense of days gone by and potential growth flavour this route along the old cut for the railroad. The railbed along the Trans Canada Trail in Guysborough County was constructed between 1929 and 1931, including concrete abutments for bridges, although rails were never laid and bridges never built.” Doesn’t that sound sad…

We are now heading west again and hope to be in New Brunswick by the end of this week.
