15. Juli: Views and Whisky

Forleden dag gik vi forbi et skilt med teksten “Mondays are a terrible way to spend 1/7 of your life!” Men det gælder nu ikke sådan en pragtfuld solskinssommerferiemandag som i dag, så vi stod tidligt op for at få så meget ud af mandagen som muligt. Pakkede sammen og forlod vores lille skæve hus i Lunenburg. Kørte endnu et stykke af The Lighthouse Route, denne gang østpå langs St Margarets Bay til det mest berømte fyrtårn i Nova Scotia i Peggy’s Cove. Kønt sted – men meeeget populært blandt turister.

Resten af dagen blev brugt på at køre op til Cape Breton, det meste af vejen af The Trans-Canada Highway = motorvej, så ikke specielt ophidsende. Ved fire-tiden nåede vi Glenora Inn & Distillery, hvor vi skal bo i nat. Vi checkede ind og gik med på en lille guidet tur i distilleriet med en enkelt lille smagsprøve undervejs, og senere spiste vi i hotellets restaurant og fik en enkelt whisky til dessert. Udemærket whisky, men kan alligevel ikke helt måle sig med dem, vi smagte på sidste år i det gamle Scotland 😉

English version:

The other day we saw a sign in a shop that said

“Mondays are a terrible way to spend 1/7 of your life!”

And while that may be true for many a cold wet winter Monday morning, it certainly isn’t true for such a beautiful sunny summer holiday Monday morning like today, so we got up early to get as much out of our Monday as possible. Packed up and left our little sloping house in Lunenburg. Drove another stretch of the Lighthouse Route; this time eastwards along St Margarets Bay to the most famous lighthouse in Nova Scotia in Peggy’s Cove. Very pretty – but extremely popular with our fellow tourists.

The rest of the day was spent driving up to Cape Breton, most of the way on the Trans-Canada Highway, so not particularly interesting. Around four o’clock in the afternoon we reached the Glenora Inn & Distillery, where we will be staying the night. We checked in and joined a guided tour of the distillery which finished with a sample of whisky. Later we had dinner in the restaurant and had a whisky for dessert. Fine whisky, but doesn’t quite beat the whiskies we tasted last year in old Scotland 😉
