September 24 - Meat Cove to Mabou

Leaving Meat Cove we looked back at the TCs still there. It's a remarkable place to camp.

Our last day together, we travelled in small groups back down the Cabot Trail, again conquering the 13% grades. Some of us rolled through Cheticamp and on to the Glenora Distillary. This is North America's only distillery using everything from Scotland except the water. They won't call it Scotch but that is what it is. At over $200 for a 250ml bottle, we did not leave with any.

Our goal was Mabou and the The Red Shoe Pub for a farewell meal and an evening of Celtic music. Of course we knitters stopped at a local farm where they raise the sheep, shear, spin, and dye their own wool.

Paula and Jerry arranged for us to park on the local dock overnight.

We walked up to the pub, again had local food and listened to fiddle, piano, spoons and pipes. We scattered in the morning heading back to ME, MA, PA, NY, and CT. The thought and effort Paula and Jerry put into this trip will grow into legend. Thanks you two for all the hard work, photos, and those great Nova Scotia caps.

Paula and Jerry:

Eh Canada ! You are a beautiful place.
