We did another nice walk at Whycocomagh Provincial Park, not in any hurry to pack up and leave. After a light lunch, we hooked up and drove north and west on the Cabot Trail to this campground.
We will be here 6 nights, and will use this as a base to explore all over northern Cape Breton, the Highlands National Park, and the drives around the coast on the Cabot Trail.
George made a campfire for tonight’s dinner. We didn’t stand around it for long, due to the cold wind.
DINNER: George’s grilled chicken that I had marinated in chimichurri sauce, baked potato cooked in the fire’s coals, and caprese salad.
A good night to curl up and watch a DVD with the heat on!
