Day #212 – Starting our trip around the famous Cabot Trail

LOCATION:  Cheticamp, Nova Scotia in NW Cape Breton
CAMPGROUND:  Cheticamp Campground, part of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park.  Full hook-ups.  Picnic table.  Fire pit (extra $).  Grassy, level sites a bit close together.  Bathrooms good.  $US32/night plus national park pass.  3 stars out of 5
WEATHER:  COLD.  High 56.  Very windy.  Mostly sunny
DISTANCE DRIVEN:  2 hours

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!
