Day Nine – Our final trip along the Cabot Trail to annoy some whales
Our final full day is a bit dreary; almost like the first day we came. We still got some beautiful pics on the Cabot Trail.
We had to get to the whale watching tour for 11:15 am so I set the GPS for the destination even though we didn’t need the directions. It kept updating us on the arrival time so that we knew how long we could stop at the lookouts around the trail.
For Stef’s sake, we arrived about 30 mins early so I am typing this as we sit on the benches on the dock awaiting the ship. After that we will find lunch and gas and continue our trip along the Cabot Trail.
Aren’t whales interesting? A pod of pilot whales kept skirting around the boat exile our captain tried to keep close enough so we could take pics. I got some video of them too so I am happy. I will post it as after I get back home.
We ate at the mid trail inn. It is decorated in sea blue and peptobismol pink. Wow, was it interestingly hideous. I had the haddock and chips. Very good.
We then drove back to our motel to relax and pull off the pics of the trip and the whales. We ate at the Red Barn restaurant for the last time and said goodbye to the waitresses there. Donna and Valerie were fun people.
So back at the motel, we packed for our journey back tomorrow morning.
Tomorrow, expect a short summary of the trip after I am home and a map of where we went.
For a neat treat, I found there is free wifi at the office and lobby so I uploaded a three videos. They haven’t been edited so they are a little rough. You can watch them by following the links below:
