The Cabot Trail Road Trip

Photo of the Week: Pleasant Bay on the Cabot Trail
This week's photo for March 8, 2013 was taken while we set out for a day road trip around our lovely island of Cape Breton. We started off the trip by making our way to Port Hastings where we had a hearty breakfast then on to Route 19 to drive the Cabot Trail in a clockwise direction. Not much snow in the fields until we reached the Cape Breton Highlands National Park all the way through St Ann's, Sydney and Big Pond on highway 4. It looks like the north part of the island kept most of its snow while in the south half of the island, most of the snow has melted away and showing signs of spring instead. That's ok too. It was a good day for our trip, the roads were bare and the scenery up in the mountains looked spectacular with snow covered trees,  just like we drove into another world.

Robin in winter

This robin decided to stay the winter in Cape Breton. Didn't see him during the cold snap, but today I found him out and about while the temperatures reached 1 Celsius.

Skating on the pond

The kids are enjoying some skating on the pond in L'Ardoise. The wind is minimal and the temperature is fluctuating between -1 and -5 Celcius. If only winter could stay like that until the spring!
The pictures are taken from the Cape Breton Living webcam.

Photo of the Week

Photo of the Week January 16, 2009. Walking on a cold January day I snapped this shot on Chapel Cove Rd in L'Ardoise. The temperature wasn't actually all that bad, a mild minus 4-5 Celsius. The cold snap hit us a couple of days later.
