Maritimes Tour Journal, day five: Cape Breton

We had a breathtaking drive to the Wood Islands ferry today, and from the south coast of PEI headed for Nova Scotia. At the ferry terminal we could see the historic Wood Island lighthouse (built 1876) and wonderful red sand beaches. #gallery-1 { margin: auto; } #gallery-1 .gallery-item { float: left; margin-top: 10px; text-align: center; width: 50%; } #gallery-1 img { border: 2px solid #cfcfcf; } #gallery-1 .gallery-caption { margin-left: 0; } /* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.php */

Waiting for the ferry the kids took time to catch up on their diaries and postcards.


The next stop was Sydney, Cape Breton, where the choristers had a quick swim before dinner and our evening concert at St. Mary’s Parish at East Bay. Turn out was good, and the performance exceptional. Thanks to our warm and gracious audience, to Jimmy McNeil who helped advertise the concert, and to our host, Father Abbass.

Back at the hotel, we enjoyed snacks and down time. Tomorrow is an early start – we head to Louisbourg!
