We headed north on the Cabot Trail and entered Cape Breton National Park with all its awesome views. The road is twisting and turning with every corner presenting a new delight. The day started off with sunshine and fog rolled in further north. Lobster rolls and chowder from the Rusty Anchor made their way into our bellies! Mmm!
We headed back to the Glenora Inn, cleaned up and decided to drive to the Red Shoe Pub in Mabou. The pub is owned by The Rankin Sisters (Heather, Cookie, Raylene and Genevieve). Everyone is so nice and down-to-earth here. It is highly recommended you have reservations, but since we were after Thanksgiving, we managed to get a table. It is not a big restaurant. I discovered Big Spruce Kitchen Party beer made just outside of Baddeck, NS. The food was delicious. The toe-tapping Celtic musical entertainment was provided by Chrissy Crowley (fiddle) and Hilda Chiasson (piano). Hilda really tears up the keys. Shannon described the as freight trains on their instruments. They were amazing.
It will be an early night tonight as we are hiking tomorrow. Can’t wait to try out the new knees.
