Broad Cove Campground, Cape Breton National Park, NS

Pointe Enragee Lighthouse

Day 15, June 25 - Broad Cove Campground, Cape Breton National Park, NS - 124.8 miles, 1531.0 For the Trip

We had light rain a couple of times during the early morning, but by 8:00 the sun was out & the tent dried OK. We hit the road a bit late, but didn't have that far to go. Entered Cape Breton National Park at the west side & headed clockwise around the park. At one of the pull offs we saw a lobster fisherman pulling traps - he waved to the crowd watching. Stopped to see the Pointe Enragee lighthouse in Cheticamp, NS. A rough dirt road with no good turn around at the end, but lots of cows!

We made a couple of stops along the way, then hit the Broad View campground, the only one in the park that is open. $37.50 per night for full hookups. We are staying two nights so we can explore the park tomorrow. While the weather isn't predicted to be rainy, we hope to get to some parts of the park that might be difficult to pull the trailer.

We set up in site 67 in the campground, made a run into Ingonish for gas for the RAV4 & supplies for two dinners. On the way back Anne suggested checking out the tenting part of the campground. On the way we saw a moose. It was munching on ferns on the side of the road about 20' from the car. Of course my camera was back in the trailer - I left it there to charge the battery. Oh well, Don & Anne got a bunch of photos.

Tonight we had steak, macaroni & cheese & a salad for dinner. We probably will not stay out too long tonight - it is cold & foggy & there are mosquitoes.

I'm at a very slow WiFi location, so many of the images didn't transfer.  I'll fix things when possible.  The extra images at today's Lakeshore Images may not be available.

Till tomorrow -
