Our 5-hour drive from Pictou to Sydney was long, but the beautiful scenic highway made it pleasurable. Below is a picture of the devastation caused all over Nova Scotia and Newfoundland by Fiona in September 2022. Cape Breton is full of outstanding topography and scenery.
We were far away from the forest fires in the Halifax and South Shore areas – thank you for those who asked if we were close. We spent some time and had dinner at the very attractive Sydney Harbour Front. Live and learn, did not reserve at the highly recommended Governor’s Pub and Eatery so had to go to an almost deserted !! 7 by 7 resto.
North Sydney Ferry to NL
Then off to North Sydney to board the Ferry at 9:15 for an 11:15 departure. Very efficient, clean and reminded us of our great BC Ferry trips on the West Coast last year. We got a cabin and slept through the whole 7-hour trip – no unwanted swells.
