I am taking the first two weeks of July off. Always a good time to take vacation if you are tied into the Auto industry. Right after Canada day I thought I would jump in the car and head to CB to visit some family. I have not been there in about 13 years and I have to get my ass there before my family dis-owns me. My Mother is originally from CB and all her family is still there. Would love to take some time on this one and stop in Boston, see some sites and take a lot of of pictures.

Marnie can't get the time off :mad: so I am going myself... nice relaxing drive, spend 4-5 days in CB and come home.

My Family come from Cape Breton as well, Ever been to Point Edward?

The family spread is there and my grandmother still lives down the road. She has outlived all of her children, and is still quite an active lady.

I am not sure about Point Edward. My memory is not clicking there. My family (or a lot of them) live in the Glace Bay and Dominion area. A few in Sydney and Halifax. I do plan on doing a lot of site seeing on this trip though. It's beautiful country there.

Ah the beautiful East coast. I'm originally from N.B. and haven't been down for a visit for five or six years. I envy you. No need to tell you how warm and friendly the people are and how gorgeous the scenary is.

Have a great trip!

It's certainly a different mind-set there Milkman, no question about that. Always refreshing to spend time there.

Keep Marnie busy for me, but not TOO busy man.

LOL, well as I said, I envy you. I also work in the automotive manufacturing sector, but I'll be working through shutdown this year (taking vacation once the temperature cools off).

all joking aside, nothing but respect for you and Marnacious.

Have a good one.

Stop by Sydney Mines and say Hi to my family for me. I love it out there but I haven't been in probably 10 years now.

How did I miss this thread? I'm originally from Halifax and my parents are both from Cape Breton. All my extended family is scattered up and down Nova Scotia. It is truly one of the greatest places to vacation. I love driving around Cape Breton -- highway 4 from the causeway to Sydney is a blast if you've got a sweet ride.

Hey, I'm in Cape Breton, Florence to be exact, a few minutes outside the Nfld. Marine Terminal in North Sydney. It's a small world lads. If you have a few minutes to spare and if you are heading out on the Trans Canada Highway through Bras D'or give me a shout; I'd be glad to buy you a coffee or a couple of brews. :food-smiley-004: You definately have to stop for a box of chicken @ The Lick-A-ChickDrool

That's funny, one of my professors brought that up in class just recently. The younger students didn't have a clue what he was talking about.

I remember when the place 1st opened, my grandfather and I were frequent customers. It closes down for the winter months and when it re-opens in the spring you can smell the spices as you drive by. Drool
