Emily and I had a fantastic day out with Cabot Discovery Tours, Cape Breton's newest sight-seeing tour group. We took in the Good Cheer Tour and got to visit Big Spruce Brewing, Cruisin' Cuisine, Eileanan Brèagha Vineyard and Glenora Distillery. I would recommend this experience to anyone! Check them out and the other tours they offer!
If you've never been to the Highland Village Museum in Iona you really should check it out. It's a living history museum that celebrates the Gaelic experience in Nova Scotia. You get to walk around the grounds, visit historic buildings and learn about the Gaelic culture from costumed animators. And to top it all off you get a stunning view of the Bras d’Or Lakes.
Emily and I took a drive up the Cabot Trail to Skir Dhu to spend an afternoon with Jay at Highland Bow and Arrow. She has opened a kick ass road side archery range and we had a blast shooting some arrows with her. What an experience. Everyone should stop in to show some support for this fantastic new business. Fun for all ages!
