It was a fine day for a drive today so I went over to Louisbourg, NS.
My first unplanned stop was in Little Lorraine, NS which I spotted as I was cruising along the road.
Finally I reached Louisbourg and had to grab a couple shots from this cemetery that’s just beside the road leading into the Fortress.
This was my first time along this section of Cape Breton so it gave me the opportunity to plan some future shooting that I’d like to do here.
Originally I had planned to stay for the sunset on the Fortress but the orientation makes me think that an early visit for a sunrise might be better.
After checking out the view of the Fortress, I wandered over to Lighthouse Point for some different views. One can see why the location was used as a gun battery by the British Military against the Fort in 1758.
It turned out that Lighthouse Point was a rather popular spot as I saw three other folks wandering about with cameras and others wandering the paths along the shoreline.
I’m a bit of a sucker for lighthouses being raised on the BC coast and having lived at one in my early youth. You can expect some more photos of other lighthouses from around the Region as I explore it further this Summer.
Overall, I was pleased with the results from this spur-of-the-moment little drive. I’m planning on heading along the Cabot Trail to Cheticamp some time this Summer as well as checking out the Atlantic Canada International Air Show in Summerside, PEI in late August.
