Chapter 24 - Cape Breton Island to Pictou, Nova Scotia
As it turned out later in the afternoon I discovered that I was not feeling well so we had to call off our afternoon get together with John and Anne. This was unfortunately for us, a totally lost day.
as is our custom we arrived at the Beechwood Campground in Pictou a little bit early and found their office door locked. Apparently they are not accustomed to travelers arriving as early as 10:30 in the morning. Anyway, we did not have to wait long and we were soon all set up in our new home.
We finally ended up (after one Cabo rejection) at a great seafood restaurant right on Caladh Avenue across the street from the harbor by the name Harbour House. Pictou is a small town but from what we can see already it is a charming little place. John and I had lobster rolls for lunch and they were absolutely delicious. So were our ice cold beers.
Kathy and I returned to our new "home" around three o'clock, delighted about we had seen in Pictou but happy to just relax with a few drinks, a nice supper, and then ultimately a good nights sleep. Tomorrow morning we are returning to downtown Pictou where we are meeting John and Anne at the deCoste Entertainment Center. They have arranged a tour with some local people who have been active in the past and present in promoting the music and the life of our Christie MacDonald. We look forward to hearing what they have to say.
