Mira Gut and Sydney

The day we took the ferry from Newfoundland to Nova Scotia was a beautiful one. The temperature the next day was 26°. We finally got to wear summer clothes for the first time

Or first stop was Mira Gut.

We stopped in Sydney to take care of those necessary chores – – – propane, gas, groceries topped off by a wonderful walk along the harbour.

This fiddle statue celebrates the importance of music in Cape Breton. It stands 17 metres tall and weighs 8 tons.

This ‘Merchant Mariner Monument’ commemorates the 1 in 7 mariners who died during the 25,000 voyages to bring supplies to the Battle of the Atlantic in WWII.

We camped right along the boardwalk. Can one ever tire of a beautiful sunset?

What’s next? Cape Breton for the Kitchenfest.
