Oh wait, I've got it! If you do it anticlockwise, the distillery is at the end of the ride.

Exactly, all part of my cleverly devised plan. I'm no dummy irregardless of what others around here will tell you.

OK, somebody is holding out on us.

Where's the Beef Meat Cove Photos??

I had my heart set on going to Meat Cove and would have got my own shots but alas circumstances precluded me from making the side trip. Well on the bright side I now have a good reason to go back and ride the Cabot Trail again. I'll get it right yet.

I know at least some of Scott's group made the trip to Meat Cove but since Scott rides faster than the speed of light it was not possible for the photons to overcome the event horizon and make it all the way to the camera sensor.
I'm really hoping someone will post up since the weather was just about perfect and the views would have been awesome.


Here are a couple I snapped at Meat Cove.

The view on the way in.

Yes Fred, the water on the right was the tipoff. OTOH, crafty, sly people can shoot over their shoulder, just to confuse old people. Bet the water pictures were from the eastern side of the trail.

Nope... West Side! Posted Image

Jeff's right! (I had to look at a map to be sure).
Those spectacular water-side roads were after (I missed the turn to) Meat Cove and before Cheticamp, going CCW.
That is indeed the West side of the island!!

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.

Those Meat Cove photos are breaking my heart. That place is still on my Bucket List.
There's just one thing I don't understand. When I mentioned Meat Cove early on there was one individual that stated in no way was he going to take a rented AE into Meat Cove.
At the time of this discussion the AE was getting no love from this Calgary Cowboy so my question is ...

WHAT HAPPENED???

The run to Meat Cove didn't seem to be an issue. The problems began after switching back to a little BMW that apparently needed the clutch pulled in when making an aggressive stop............. :lol: I wish I had that one on video.

The black mark is still there. :P
