It was raining lightly on departure but stopped and resumed from time to time. I saw where the Trailsman Motel was located as I made my way to the museum. About 10 km out of Baddeck proper, and not a bad place as it turns out.
I have some photos taken in the museum that need processing and uploading. However, the internet speed here is awful. So, I may make a separate blog entry. If they upload ok, I will edit the blog title to help you detect this. I am going to be here 2 nights.
The Bell museum is run by Parks Canada. The setting is beautiful and the exhibits really well done.
AGB was a man with varied technical interests and lived at a time when things electrical and all aspects of aviation were developing rapidly. The displays show how he became involved in many areas.

I ate an early dinner at the Bell Buoy Restaurant and Supper House. Americans prnounce buoy as booey, but real English pronunciation is "boy". So, Bellboy is the name. I passed on the lobsters and went with scallops which were cooked so as to be tender and not toughened up. I sort of rushed out because the rain was going to arrive in earnest, again.
By 1750, the rain has come and passed through. I have some pictures to post that you will enjoy.
Tomorrow, I will do the Cabot Trail loop. It's at least four hours, more if you stop for lunch and also stop for pictures. The weather will not be perfect, but we shall see.
