    You won't be able to sail on the Bluenose this year.

    But, it seems as if much of the work will be done in public view, so you may be able to get some unique views of a ship being worked on.

    There is a nightly ceilidh at St Michael's hall in Baddeck. Well worth a visit.

    The thing about Cape Breton is that it is not Disneyland. You go there to meet folks,
    and slow down enough to see the rural beauty and share their island. Ask folks when you get there what to see, and how to get there.

    We keep a good deal of fantastically wonderful scenery in reserve just so the English don't get to see it. Don't tell anybody, it's a wonderful joke.

    Seriously, it isn't the Grand Canyon or the Alps. But a fellow Midwesterner would probably get it.

    I have to agree with those who gave Cape Breton Island an "okay but not great". Halifax is a very nice town. you can catch the free bus along the waterfront and get a mini tour of the city. If you have the chance to head toward New Brunswick the tidal exchange at Hopewell Cape should not be missed -- it can be over forty feet. Plan for both high and low tides with excellent photographic opportunities. There is a small college in the Sackville - Amherst area that has an excellent arts program that is headed by a very fine photographer. The name escapes me but I have it recorded at home. Probably some internet searching will tell you. Further south is Saint John and St. Andrews where I found better photography than Cape Breton.

    For the record, Robert Frank lives in Cape Breton.

    People who say Cape Breton is so-so photographically, I think are speaking one sort of language, which is the language of perfect vistas and Ansel Adams type pictures. I think Cape Breton definitely offers that, but mostly I think what it offers is an entire world that's different from the ones most of us live with, with different traditions, problems and hopes. I guess I find it really problematic to dismiss a place photographically based on the lack of scenic overlooks. Particularly when that place has spectacular scenic overlooks.

    Or in the words of Alexander Graham Bell
    "I have travelled the globe. I have seen the Canadian and American Rockies, the Andes and the Alps and the highlands of Scotland, but for simple beauty, Cape Breton outrivals them all."
