Cabot Trail – Day 4 – Ingonish

The Keltic Lodge has a breakfast buffet which is quite extensive including Eggs Benny. They give you tickets when you check in that are presented upon entrance.

We didn’t have to venture too far to get to the trail head. Literally a 2 minute drive from our room. We tackled the Middle Head Trail today. It follows a long, narrow peninsula separating two ocean bays, ending on headland cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, Cape Smokey and Ingonish Island. There are opportunities to see seabirds, seals, whales and eagles, as well as fishing boats in the early summer. 3.8 km in length over different terrain, roots and rocks. It is a well travelled trail to an incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean. A fantastic red chair photo op!

We worked up quite the appetite today. Shannon and I headed for the @coastalrestaurantingonish in Ingonish. The staff were amazing and the Jack ‘n Dill burger was the best I’ve ever tasted. The show You Gotta Eat Here was filmed there. A high on my recommend…and they have Big Spruce Kitchen Party beer.

We have dinner booked for tonight in the dining room. Behind our building there were red chairs where we could watch the sunset and enjoy a cocktail before dinner. Dinner was lovely with another feed of fish but no lobster on the menu. We are finding that lobster is scarce these days. The moon was incredible tonight as it reflected on Ingonish Bay.

Our national parks have red chairs at key photo op locations. This one overlooks the North Atlantic
