We found lots to see and do in the Bras D'Or Lake region of Cape Breton Highlands. In the town of Baddeck we visited the Alexander Graham Bell National Historic Site. If I ever knew, I had forgotten that he was from Nova Scotia. I always claimed him as American.But indeed, most of his inventions that he is famous for were created here on the shores of Bras D'Or Lake.
The museum is just full of artifacts too numerous to mention. Some things I knew about, much more I never knew.
A little about his remarkable life.
All of his work was humanitarian in nature…his inventions thought of in order to help or improve on something.
He improved upon the Wright Brothers powered aircraft, producing the first plane ever to fly in Canada, in 1909.
Baddeck is proud of its Scottish heritage.
On our way back to our campground we saw a sign for a waterfall….so we followed it….down a country road.
There's a hiking trail involved.
We were following a brook.
We passed many interesting trees whose roots spread over boulders.
