Bonus day in Tignish

We were pleasantly surprised to wake up to brilliantly sunny skies.

I took my morning walk on the beach while Al did his exercise routine. We devoured a warming breakfast of oatmeal on this relatively cool morning before heading out while the good weather holds.

We drove north to the northwestern-most tip of the island at North Cape. We spent quite a lot of time at the Interpretive Center learning about local history and wind energy production as they have a large wind farm here, where the wind is almost always blowing.

Had lunch at “Cousins” in Tignish, a restaurant owned by the folks whose summer cottage is next to where we are camped. We then toured around the area soaking up the local ambiance. We bought fresh haddock at the local fisherman’s co-op right on the harbor and watched farmers harvesting their potato crop.

When we got back to camp we took another long walk on the beautiful red sand beach. Feeling fortunate to have received this beautiful day here as a unexpected bonus.

Bright sunshine and cool. 32 miles
