Friday 2nd September 2011……a driving day!!

Enough of these leisurely breakfasts and sunny mornings lets get on the road and put all these concerts and vistas behind me!!!

This was the last stretch of the Cabot Trail and a wonderful drive that I would recommend to anyone!!

Now I am heading for the western side of Nova Scotia and I did a drive of 220 miles I did stop at a few places…

The sign on the gate stated no overnight parking and the gates close at dusk…so Plan B …if I had one.  I decided I had enough time to have supper here and those freshly dug veggies sure were tasty and the scenery …well what do you think??

There was a huge field next to the station and cars in the parking lot and lights in the building so I went inside and

So now showered and ready for my tea and movie!!
