8 August 2016 Sailboat Cruise on Lake Bras d'Or, Baddeck, Cape Breton



          Our plans are to tour the Bell Museum on our last day so before we did that, we wanted to see the lake from the water and understand what the Bells saw, from that vantage point, that caused them to choose Baddeck for their summer home.

     



     We hopped a wooden 67 foot sailboat built by the captain's father in his back yard decades ago and he sailed us around the lake narrating as we went.
