Let’s just be extremely honest here, it took me SO.LONG to write this post because I don’t exactly know how to do so. I guess this is what they call a writer’s block, huh? I mean, I told you about the beaches of PEI, the picturesque Cabot Trail, and the charming little town that is Baddeck. What else is there to tell you? After our morning Mass and breakfast at Baddeck, we drove through the worst torrential downpour known to man for about 5 hours or so. The rain was so bad, that, even with the wipers going at full speed, there were still times I literally could not see anything in front of me. Let me put it this way – the view is similar to what I see when someone takes my glasses away from me: EXTREMELY blurry and very unclear.
Just a little bit northwest of the cove is the Swiss Air Flight 111 Memorial. On September 2, 1998, the plane crashed into St. Margaret’s Bay, bringing with it the lives of 229 men and women. We stopped for a little bit to pay respect before continuing our drive back into the city, a fittingly calm and peaceful ending to the crazy, wind-crazed, day we had.
