A perfect red chair roost overlooking Kidston Lighthouse in beautiful Bras D'Or Lake, a stones throw away from quaint but bustling Baddeck, NS. A welcome respite for travellers expanding their minds with the amazingly illuminating history found in the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site. Next stop Tatamagouche, NS.

Savouring the cuisine of local eateries is high on our list of must do experiences. The Dancing Goat Cafe & Bakery, along the Cabot Trail in Margaree, NS is one of our favourites. It's delicious food, engaging locales and comfortable ambience proved the perfect spot for us to slow our pace and get some work done.

He knows all the secret, hidden  launches along the Margaree River, raising the adventure factor of our afternoon paddle to a higher level.

And so I took a walk outside 
And saw the northern lights dance lightly 
High above a wild Cape Breton Sky 
Felt the north west wind blow softly 
All along the valley from the sea 
And from my doorway watched the moonrise 
High above the hills of Margaree🎶

The Hills of Margaree-Jim Brannigan Paddling on Cape Bretons' beautiful Margaree River feels as though you've been painted into an Old Masters landscape. Jeremy Smith of CB West Paddle Boards @cbwestsup expertly guided us through shallow rapids, respectfully skirted serious salmon fishers, and allowed us to enjoy the bucolic settings along  the quiet portions of this river he grew up on. Soaring eagles & leaping salmon brought us as close to nature as one can get.

And if you decide to venture to some of the locales we visit, you will know who to contact for  local knowledge as well as get you geared up or guided along the way. Jeremy Smith, of CB West Paddle Boards @cbwestsup took us on an incredible  tour of Cape Breton's beautiful Margaree River. This river  has long been on Pams' bucket list but it's secret launches and unpredictable depths have made it difficult to navigate. Jeremy, a Margaree native, made it all possible! Not only was the paddle everything we thought it might be, but Jeremy was awesome accommodating our schedule, providing gear, sorting out a shuttle and bestowing upon us the friendly hospitality Cape Breton is known for. Oh, and we can't forget the fresh cinnamon buns that appeared out of his dry bag during a rest stop! Pure magic!! @cbwestsup @visitnovascotia @nstourism #visitnovascotia @visitcapebretonisland @tourcapebreton @capebretontourism #explore #explorecanada #explorens #capebreton #novascotia #cabottrail #margaree #cheticamp #capebretonhighlands #sup #standuppaddle #paddleboarding @paddlecanada #paddlecanada #adventuresforthesoul @bluejellyfishsup #shareoceanpassion #roadtrip #crosscanadapaddleroadtrip #canada #canada150
