Baddeck, Nova Scotia

Oct 7th we drove to Cape Breton Island, one of the most picturesque islands in the world. We stayed at the Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground. Baddeck is the home of Alexander Graham Bell, and we spent hours at the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site learning about his life’s accomplishments and successes. He not only discovered the telephone, he also sponsored the construction of the first aircraft in Canada, the Silver Dart in 1909 and the hydrofoil craft the HD-4, which set a world speed record in 1919, at 71 mph on Bras d’Or Lake. We explored the many shops in Baddeck during the rain buying various gifts and memorabilia to take home. And finished the day with a sumptuous meal at Yellow Cello Cafe in Baddeck
