Destination Cape Breton Island

View Gaspe and Cape Breton on baixing's travel map.

Our next campsite would be on Cape Breton Island. I knew that it would be terrible, because I booked it and there wasn't much left to choose from so I just picked the cheapest one.

The drive up was pretty awesome, but first we stopped for lunch at Pomquet Beach. We had heard there were massive sand dunes there, but to me, they looked pretty small, and grass covered. Grassy dunes important for preventing land erosion. So that's fine, it's quite pretty when you think of it that way.

Here are some views from the way up. There were more awesome scenes than these, but as you know, I hate taking photos from moving vehicles. I was cajoled into taking one of them:


We made a bunch of stops along the way and took pictures at the various lookouts.

By the time we got to our crappy campsite at Cheticamp, we were tired and didn't even bother going to the free hot chocolate and marshmallows event at the campfire. Of course, it started raining again. We played more cards in our tent and went to bed quite early, so we could find a better campsite for the next night.
