We were going to head for a smoked fish place we've been to before, St Mary's Smokehouse. Unfortunately a company bought them out in 2017, then closed the St Mary plant and outlet, moving production to Charlottetown PEI. We decided to take that route anyway, a nice mix of coastal and interior roads.
First we headed to a small ferry crossing. It runs every 1/2 hour so not long to wait:
Continuing on, we stopped in to a lighthouse in Port Bickerton. Surprisingly there were at least 10 other cars there, using up all the (limited) parking, so we didn't take a tour.
We needed a Walmart break and some lunch, and Antigonish was on the way. From there we headed north to Cape George and some nice seaside views:
|Love the wild rose hedgerows...|
|and the variety of plantings on the other side|
|Great sea views, as usual from a lighthouse|
|Over in the haze is the West coast of Cape Breton, and the Celtic Coast Trail|
|Very peaceful here|
|Inside the Interpretive Centre|
|The large light in this picture...|

Tonight we're staying at another Boondockers Welcome site, in Harbour Centre NS:
