Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort , Part 2

Day 2 at Cabot Shores Wilderness Resort and it felt like we had been there for ages. This is the sort of place you can relax and let the stress flow away very quickly. We started the day with the breakfast bar although in the Bistro, cooked breakfasts are available. That's homemade granola:)

Paul's mother was an amazing artist and the entire place is full of art in all mediums. I loved it. Even the chalets are full of art!

Speaking of which.... the chalets!

I really enjoyed all the interesting books and treasures scattered around. So interesting, you could spend a lot of time just poking about. This is a vase of eagle feathers. There are lots of eagles around here and even moose hang out behind the lodge!

One night I was out taking some pictures early in the evening and got spooked. I was sure I heard some snorting and a stomp or two and did NOT want to take a chance at coming face to face with one of those large beasts all by myself! Made a very quick dash back to the lodge. Felt quite silly when told were quite harmless. Hmmm...

Can you picture me running through this old orchard to get back to the lodge! lol. This is the camp ground.

Tire swing is more my speed:) Needed some down time after the wild moose run.

This tipi is one of the places you can sleep. Did I mention there is a yurt available too? So cool.

Love this!! One of Paul's mom's tapestries. On July 8-10th, the Cabot Shores is hosting The Good Health Festival , a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Action N. S. Sounds like a wonderful weekend! Barbara runs the Gate of Life Healing Arts here year round. Accupuncture, massage, Qi Gong, meditation.... Next time I plan on enjoying some of those options.

Some quiet time before this particular evening's exciting activities.

Outside all is calm and peaceful. This is Tanner on the Yolo board. Serene green:)

Carl with our supper! Planked salmon and lobster!

Later......under the watchful eye of Carl the cook, Charley Boorman and crew did some last minute prep to the lobsters. Dr. Paul had organized a full day of lobster fishing for the Extreme Frontiers: Canada documentary crew and it started at 3am! The show is being filmed for Chanel 5 in the UK. They are traveling across the country on motorcycles and having adventures in each province. I could do that!

A bit of socialising before supper.

More socialising....The two women in the foreground who you can barely see are the MacInnes sisters. They come from a long line of lobster fishermen and continue on with the family business. Showed Charley and the boys a thing or two about hard work. I think they pulled 465 traps!

Our gracious and warm hosts, Dr. Paul and Barbara with the Extreme Frontiers crew. I think I can speak for everyone and say that we had a lovely time! So will you if you ever find yourself here!

Ah, I've finally read why Hayley picked up Charley on your weekend away! Loved the pictures. CB did a couple of extreme bike series with his pal Ewen McGregor, but the next series he did on his own was just as popular. He seems so laid-back and cool!
