Alexander Graham Bell
I woke up ready to go this morning, I slept so good last night. Michael on the other hand looked like he needed an extra coffee. Sure enough as soon as he started listening to the radio it became apparent that we were going to have a rough start. By the time we got to Cape Breton he was back to his normal self and we decided to check out the Alexander Graham Bell museum. It was closed but they let us in anyway to explore the place. Thank you! The place was worth stopping at, we ended up spending several hours there. They really placed the emphasis on what his life was like and not just his inventions. He seemed like an amazing person who wanted to make the world a better place. After the museum we drove as far as we could along the Cabot trail. By the time we found a place to stop for the night it was dark and I was worried about the twisty roads and the fog but we made it to the entrance of Cape Breton Highlands National Park where we parked for the night. The weather isn't ideal for a Cabot trail drive it was rainy and overcast most of the day. To be honest I was a little disappointed but the raw beauty of the place still shone through even in the rain (or maybe especially in the rain).
