Englishtown Ridge and Western Cape Breton Highlands National Park

On Wednesday, August 4 and 5 we camped at a small family owned campground on a ridge in Englishtown, Cape Breton. We had planned to take the rig across a small river on a local ferry but changed our minds when we arrived at the dock and spoke with the ferry attendant who said he "wouldn't advise it" because of our length. The intended campground was on the other side of the river. The river was swift (to say the least) and the ferry was held in place by a 2" steel cable. I guess I wouldn't advise it either! We returned to Englishtown Ridge Campground and signed on for two nights so we'd have a full day to drive up the western side of Cape Breton.

The day we arrived at Englishtown was frightfully rainy --poured all day. We made seafood chowder and enjoyed the cool night -- again.

The next full day we spent exploring the cape and ate lunch at a local cafe. We both ordered a seafood dish and every morsel was eaten.
