Day 12: Got off from Glooscap CG by about 8:30 headed to Cabot Trail CG on Cape Breton Island. Gena wanted pictures of more of the carved elm trees in Truro, so se made a short detour to do that. Our first stop in Truro was in a Sobey’s grocery store. They are a lot like a really spruced up Harris Teeter store. We managed photos of all but one of the 20 carvings. We drove by the location where the carving was supposed to be, but could not see it. Fortunately today is still part of the long holiday weekend, so the traffic was really light. After getting all the photos we wanted, we stopped at an Esso station for fuel - - cost $102 to fill the truck. Weather was really nice until we encountered an intense downpour about midway between New Glascow and the causeway over to Cape Breton Island. We passed Charlie & Kerry as we went past the visitor information center coming on to Cape Breton Island. They wound up just a couple cars behind us checking into our camp ground. We managed to get two spaces next to each other. Tomorrow we’ll tour the Cabot
