Port Hawkesbury, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia

Port Hawkesbury is the first town on the Cape Breton end of the causeway across the Canso Strait connecting Nova Scotia's main island with its peninsula. We stopped here so that Ruth could check out the cooperative collective quilt market. I, meanwhile, waited on the pier, where I photographed some boats and where I met some local folk who, probably in order to get me to quit playing my harmonica, permitted me to fish for mackerel with their rods. I caught several.
