Cape Breton Photo of the Week: Margaree Harbour Bridge

Cape Breton Living Photo of the Week: Margaree Harbour BridgeMargaree Harbour, Cape Breton Island

From a road trip around the Cabot Trail, as we turned off onto the Shore Rd in Margaree Harbour, I snapped this shot (from the passenger seat). Belle Cote is on the other side of the bridge, where we just came from. We decided to do the Trail counterclockwise. That is we started in Sydney, went around St Ann’s Bay, then up along the east side of Cape Breton and back down the west side. To me, this is kind of like going against the grain.  I prefer going clockwise around the Cabot Trail, starting in Port Hastings near the Canso Causeway. I’m not sure why that is, but it just feels right. None the less, it was a pleasant trip through the beautiful Cabot Trail with its colours giving off a warmth that would fill anyone’s soul.
