    My Admiral was there when she was young with her parents in the 60's. Don't tell her I told you how long ago that was., Great trip however the winds can be very nasty. Blew everything on deck overboard 50' boat.

    Wish I were going with. In town but going to a wedding. Rumor has it they have the best oysters in the world there

    Have a great trip take pictures. Say hi to Rita for me.

    Cheers

          Never got there, but I saw Cape Breton in the distance after fighting a 700 pound tuna for 5 hours, backing the whole time,

          out of Rustico Harbour PEI. I am originally from Oleary PEI and ain't never going back.

                I hope you have a great trip. I assume you will be coming through at the causeway. Keep an eye open for pilot whales, a couple of weeks ago there was an estimated 50+ feeding on mackeral at the causeway on the PEI side of the locks. I was fortunate enough to see them from the shore, quite a sight. I might be biased but I think between the Bras'dor lakes, costal waters and the Mira river we have the best boating on the east coast of Canada.

                Head to Baddeck if you get a chance, great boating stop.

                Enjoy.
