Being that it was November (with no leaves left on the trees) we had an extraordinary view of the water most of our way and we even saw a partridge! The funny thing is that it wasn't until two days later that I realized the connection... we saw a partridge... on "Partridge Island" - how cool!
The terrain offers a challenge for anybody who has been wanting more than groomed trails. At many points along the trail, you will need to watch your step. There are plenty of views along the way, but one has to stop so that he/she doesn't trip. The added difficulty also means that you will be taking a lot longer to cover the distance.
The Cape to Cape footpath is approximately 400 kilometres of trail starting at Cape Chignecto and crosses mainland Nova Scotia to Cape George. Being a community based project, trail segments were established throughout four counties. Trail systems such as Rogart Mountain Trail, Kenomee Trail System and the Gully Lake Wilderness Area are part of this footpath.
The walk across the blue bridge back to Lane's Privateers Inn took a little longer than expected. By this time the event had already started. I walked inside and proceeded to the bar area where I was given a letter of Marque, a reproduction map to Liverpool from the early 1800s and a piece of silver to make it official that I was a privateer for the day while in LIverpool.
This is the sort of place you can relax and let the stress flow away very quickly.
