    BADDECKN O V A S C O T I A

    I have travelled the globe. I have seen theCanadian and American Rockies, the Andesand the Alps and the highlands of Scotland,but for simple beauty, Cape Breton outrivalsthem all. Born in Scotland, AlexanderGraham Bell built his summer home inBaddeck where he sang the praises of hisadopted misty, rugged isle. The AlexanderGraham Bell Museum and Historic Site overlooks Bras dOr Lake, a salt water inlandsea, and showcases fascinating biographicaldisplays as well as inventions. Baddeckserves as the capital of the Cabot Trail, an187-mile drive which rollercoasters aroundthe northern part of the island revealingmossy green valleys, craggy cliffs, wildcoastal zones and rivers thick with salmonand trout. Scottish Highlanders up to anestimated 50,000 Scots settled much ofthis island in the late 18th and early 19th

    centuries. The stretch from Baddeck to CapeSmokey is known as the Gaelic Coast. You willalso experience the spirit of lAcadie in CapeBreton, where the residents of the fishing villages maintain their French Canadian identity and language. Neils Harbour presentsa postcard-perfect photo opportunity. Set on a rockyknob, the red-and-white lighthouse is a charmingambassador in aland of lobsterand snow crab.

    Imagine 100 billion tons of seawatermore thanthe combined flow of the worlds freshwater riversflowing in and out of the Bay of Fundy every day.This gradual yet mind-boggling ebb and flow literally tilts Nova Scotia slightly and creates powerful seasideerosion that scours cliffs, carves caves and forges towering sea stacks like those found at popular HopewellRocks. At low tide, you can walk on the ocean floor and inspect the bizarre red, sandstone pinnacles risingtoward the heavens. Underneath the waters surface, one of the richest marine ecosystems churns with krill,squid, herring, tuna, mackerel, shrimp, sharks, dolphins and other fascinating sea life. Visitors to the Bay ofFundy have a front-row seat to nature and its aquatic splendor. On a boating adventure, a range of whalesmay be spotted breaching and lunging. At times the whale population exceeds 300 creatures includingHumpback, Northern Right, Beluga, and Minke whales, among others. Because of the food source and natural protection of the bay, Fundy is a popular spot for whales to give birth. Some experts say the Bay ofFundy surpasses the Great Barrier Reef in terms of breathtaking marine diversity. Theres no better place toappreciate Mother Nature and the foundation of her remarkable food chain.

Scottish Highlanders up to anestimated 50,000 Scots settled much ofthis island in the late 18th and early 19th
