We spent the next two days at Dorje Denma Ling practice center and did our main task for Marilyn. We left on a beautiful morning for a six hour drive to Cape Breton. Our immediate destination was Big Bras d'Or where we had a cottage and puffin tour planned.
This was a layover stop (two nights) and we took a road tour of Cape Breton Island on the Cabot Trail...really a well maintained highway around the penninsula with exquisite views. As we surmised, we planned way to little time there. The Gaelic University there is active; there may be more Gaelic speakers here than in Ireland/Scotland. As with most road trips, a good deal of the views are from the back seat. Familiarity breeds....
