Thousands pass through Guysborough County every year either going to or coming from Cape Breton. Most are probably unaware of this as they drive along the Trans Canada at Aulds Cove. Most are likely focused on another destination and are not really open to the notion of a detour.
Because much of the County is generally overlooked there is still the possibility for discovery for those who do come. You don’t have to stand in line ups or shoulder your way through crowds though you may have trouble finding where to go and what to do. I’ll be writing about this very thing. If you do decide to visit you’ll have some insider information to help you enjoy your time in Guysborough County.
I’ve been kayaking for twenty years, recreational cycling for three years after a 10 year hiatus, photographed using film, stopped, then took it up again digitally in 2005. I grew up here, studied at St. Francis Xavier University and have continued living in or near the village of Guysborough as an adult.
The smooth surface yields a sensation much like gliding. Without any bumps or interference from the road surface it just seems as if there is less friction involved making the whole affair more pleasurable - I seemed to be going faster with less effort.
