Pollett’s Cove (A Journey to the Beach) … This Labour Day weekend, Laura, Kasper and I hiked along the rugged hills and wind swept coast of Northern Cape Breton into Pollett’s Cove. It is a fairly easy hike with one challenging climb from sea level to 1200 ft. We spent a couple nights with our tent pitched on the beach. Pollett’s Cove is said to be one of the most scenic places in Canada. With its steep surrounding hills, wild horses and cows (I am afraid of cows) feeding on the lush green meadows, seals playing, bald eagles soaring, and increadable sunsets over the Gulf of St Lawrence followed by spectacular stars that out line the surrounding mountains. Although we did not experience any moose, bears, and coyotes … they are all very common here. I believe that this is the nicest hike I ever experienced in Nova Scotia.
