One of the world’s most scenic drives is the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. Starting and ending at Baddeck, on the Bras d’Or Lakes, it winds in a rough circle which crosses the island twice and more or less encloses Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Along the way there are numerous small villages and fishing ports, and spectacular scenery along the western coast which fronts on the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and the east coast fronting on the Atlantic Ocean. This view is on the west coast heading south over the slopes of Cap Rouge towards the village of Cheticamp, a centre of Acadian culture and art, as well as a fishing port. Taken in September 2006 with a Sony DSCF828 camera.
