We leave for Halifax next Saturday!
Richard has booked us a four-hour (!!) rafting trip Sunday afternoon, so we're looking for something to do/someplace to stay Saturday night. Most of the music venues around Truro seem to be dark that night, because there's a festival in New Glasgow and another daytime music event in another town, but we wouldn't get there til at least 5 so that's no good. Any ideas within about an hour's drive of Shubenacadie?
He did decide that camping isn't really feasible if we're flying in and getting charged $25 per bag plus more if they're overweight. so cheap hotels R us. We'll spend two nights in Sydney (or closer to Louisbourg if we can) and then we have a choice I'd love your input on.
People have been telling us how lovely Cape Breton is. We could take a day or so and drive around that park, and then boot it back to Halifax on 104 for one or two nights before we fly home -- or we were considering skipping the park and driving back to Halifax via a series of small roads right along the Southern coast, too small to even have numbers: Pennington Coast Road, Oceanview Rd, Fourchu Rd, etc -- this would add several hours to the driving time, and it looks like we'd have to bring our lunch (unless there's local stuff to eat in towns like Framboise or L'Ardoise) but is it a pretty area? Would that drive be worth doing?
