Hi, we are planning a trip east this year. We will be in Halifax for a few days then are planning to travel up the Eastern Shore up to Cape Breton. We leave Halifax on July 8 and have booked accommodations near Baddeck on the 9th. We are hoping to visit some beach or beaches, and Sherbrooke Visit. 'We' are my husband, myself, a 13 year old girl and 9 year old boy. We are interested in nature and history. We are thinking that we'd overnight Libscombe or Sherbrooke. Does this seem reasonable? Any suggestions for nice beaches or walks/hikes along our way? What would the driving time be for this? Are we going to be able to easily find dining or would we best to have a picnic cooler for the trip? How much more time would it take to stick to the shore out to Canso rather than going inland from Sherbrooke.
