Pleasant Bay - Cabot Trail
Early Monday morning on Thanksgiving Day, before the sun was even showing any light in the starry sky, I packed our picnic basket with the lunch that I prepared the night before and packed my charged cameras, cell phone and (just in case) all its cables and chargers. By the time we had everything gathered and ready to head out, the sun was just coming up over the hill giving us an amazing warm yellow sunrise.
On this road trip, we decided to head for Sydney and do the Cabot Trail counterclockwise. Somewhere on the 105 near Bras d’Or we stopped for a coffee at Tim’s and then down the road to top up the car with gas. Instead of taking the ferry in Englishtown, we drove to St Ann’s and enjoyed the spectacular view of St Ann’s Harbour and its winding roads. The fall foliage was not quite at its peak, but another week or two would have done it, changing what is still green into yellows oranges and reds. But then waiting too long, we risk having heavy rain and strong wind, leaving us with only bare trees with shades of browns and greys.
