Bass River was small active-looking place with several well-kept exhibits and (of course) some nice scenic shoreline:
|Logging has been big in the area|
|Still some big logs around|
|The "Old Wharf Road" area|
With a sign that offers "Dragon's Breath" cheese, how could we not stop?
|It's a strong blue cheese, smells like dirty socks to some people, but tasty. I've never tasted dirty socks though...|
|Various types of Gouda|
In an area called 5 Islands, we stopped at the Five Islands Lighthouse exhibit. This one has been moved several times since being built in 1913, almost 7km now from where it started. The last move was due to the sale of the original property rather than erosion, and the lighthouse is now set in a lovely picnicking area.

We came the other direction in this area a number of years ago. It seemed a much nicer drive today, with more of an effort to showcase the area.
We're getting a bit concerned about where we'll be able to stay over the upcoming holiday weekend. We might be back to PEI sooner than expected!
