Date Night on Cape Breton
All you people in New York and London and Paris and Rome and everywhere else, eat your heart out. We just went on our weekly “date night” at the Chowder House Seafood place in Neil’s Cove on Cape Breton Island in Canada. The seafood chowder, fish and chips, and lobster roll were great. And their “forest fruits pie” we took with us and ate with a cup of coffee in our camper was a real “Mmmmm this is good” experience.
And besides all that, getting here was a feast for our eyes and fine sustenance for our souls. We were told that the best way to get to Neil’s Cove was by taking the Coastal Loop and we found ourselves on a narrow, twisting, bumpy road…
After multiple stops along the way for photos, we made a stop so I could try to capture a few more “post card” scenes in the fading light. We didn’t realize that our destination was the last building on the left – barely visible.
We knew we were there when we saw all the cars – it is where all the local lobster fishermen and their families go for supper on Sunday night. People knew each other so there was lots of laughter. Before I went in I had to take a picture of the cute “bird house.”
