The Sunrise Trail, Nova Scotia

Our first adventure in Nova Scotia was going to be driving the Cabot Trail, the road that traverses the perimeter of Cape Breton Island. But first, we had to get there. What better route to take than the Sunrise Trail, or what the visitor center called, the Mini Cabot Trail? It truly did give us a glimpse into what to expect, but it also had a beauty all its own.

I couldn’t get over how beautiful it was to drive along these flower-lined roads with a view of the sea out ahead of us.

I also kept falling in love with each cottage we saw, no matter the state of disrepair. In fact,the weathered clapboard just made me love it more. I would love to fix up this little home.

Or maybe this one. Wouldn’t it be so quaint?

We didn’t see a shack we didn’t love, and this one with the red trim was exceptional.

And the perfect backdrop for a photo.

I promise, Erica does have an arm to go with that gorgeous Pantene hair.

I loved curving around the cape and coming across this gorgeous scene.

We drove down to a marina and found a little hut for lunch. Around the bend was this private little dining nook. We didn’t eat there (a picnic bench near the hut was perfect for our poutine and hot dogs), but it looked so sweet.

And of course, it isn’t a drive around a cape without a lighthouse at the end.
