Day 230 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: The Cabot Trail

The Cabot Trail is hard on brakes, suspension and gas!

Not many fishermen fish on Sunday, but there were a few boats out in the waters this morning.

Can you believe that I stopped at the MacIassic’s place just to take a photo of the barn, and ended up having Lobster bunch?

Blessing of the Boats in Dingwall

Once the boats have been blessed, they parade out of the harbour and circle around and come back to the wharf.

    It was pleasure to meet Mya and of course you to 🙂 My sister & I had my 2 grandchildren from Cheticamp out on a day adventure. We are just waiting to head back West but the whole experience has been great. Glad to hear your brakes are ok long haul home if not. Give Mya a pat on the head for us & good luck on the rest of your journey. Dee, Cathy, Marisa & Nick

    Thanks for your photos of Dingwall – my Mom (Wilhelmina J O’Brien) was born there in 1920! (Moved w/ her family to Boston in 1925 – father = Cornelius W. O’Brien; Mother = the former Alice Griffin).
