If I had to be stuck waiting for someone anywhere on Cape Breton Island, there is no other place I’d rather wait. Lucky for me, I was greeted the minute I arrived in Keltic Lodge’s main lobby by a dear friend and a beautiful glass of New Zealand Savignon Blanc. I had arrived. We plonked down in one of the many cozy settings in the sun-filled Highland Sitting Room waiting for the rest of the troops to arrive. Sadly, it was a bit too breezy on the patio to enjoy watching the sailboats beating upwind on the ocean.
It was only Day 2 of my adventure on the island, but it was also the day I started feeling at home here…which was a good thing because I had 33 more sleeps to explore.
I couldn’t thing of a nicer place to celebrate breaking 100 on the Highland Golf Course nearby…which admittedly may take me an entire summer to achieve. Some would say it was too formal. I felt comfortable in my khakis and t-shirt. Casual is elegant on Cape Breton Island.
We didn’t stay to enjoy the seafood-inspired, light pub fare menu that evening because we were joining our host and General Manager, Graham Hudson in the more formal Purple Thistle Dining Room across the hall. If we had, we would have had our first taste of the Celtic-based entertainment offered most evenings.
Of course, Keltic Lodge is a deserved icon of Cape Breton and its setting alone would take your breath away. But there is so much more to see and do.
