We've seen an awful lot of Nova Scotia in the time that we were here last year, and now we are doing a bit more touring. We've sailed some of the Bras d'Or Lakes, and that's one good reason we are back on Cape Breton, since last year Rauchelle became a partner with 3 (old) men (okay, they are like 66, 70 & 72, or something like that...seriously!) and we want to do some more sailing.
They say that you haven't seen Cape Breton until you've seen it from the lake, and it rivals sailing the Sunshine Coast of BC.
So yesterday we took a drive across part of the lake. You probably can't really get an idea of the Bras d'Ors unless you see a map of it. It is a large body of salt water (22% vs ocean 37%) being fed freshwater from watershed, and the lake dominates the interior of Cape Breton island. The lake is kind of cut off at Little Narrows, making there a northern and a southern lake but yet all called Bras d'Or (French meaning 'arm of gold')which is where we took a short ferry ride.
