So we have been perusing Cape Breton. It was our first holiday in ten years, our first time renting a cottage like "normal" grown ups, and for the children, the first time at the sea! We swam every day—the Northwest coast is the warmest waters north of the Carolinas, and definitely the warmest water we've swum in all summer!
Oh to be battered around by waves!
We also drove the dizzying heights of the Cabot Trail...
In short, we were smitten.
