A nice rest

Louisbourg is a small coastal town in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Rich in history and culture, it is full of lovely shops and museums to visit as well as no shortage of accommodations and restaurants. From Port Hastings, just across the Canso Causeway, take route 4 through Port Hawkesbury to St.Peters. Then, follow route 4 to Sydney or, if you are an "off the beaten path" driver such as myself, branch off towards the village of L'Ardoise via route 247. Either drive is very scenic. Route 4 offers a lovely view of Bras D'or lake while 247 is more coastal with many small, rural villages. Be sure to gas up in St.Peters if you are very low on fuel. I will complete this later.
