Colin and Jane's Cape Cod style home was built in 1834 on a pioneer farm (see photo). The stone wall was built about 1790 from rocks on the fields when the farm was started. The chestnut trees are probably just as old.
After breakfast with toasted home-made bread we were on our way 350 miles to North Sidney to catch the ferry to Newfoundland tomorrow. We had a late lunch at Mother Webb's. Highly recommended by Colin and Jane, this is a steak and hamburger joint beside the main road. We were not disappointed. The food was great and the service hard to beat.
Crossing into Cape Breton we stopped at the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Park in Baddeck. We were last here in 1965. The exhibits were expanded in 1978 with the addition of a full scale replica of AGB's hydrofoil. It must be close to 50 feet long. We finally got to the RV Park at 7:00PM
