When you get up, if you have bikes, take a nice ride North to Smokey Mountain and then peddle all the way up it, come on you can do it, if your bikes are mountain bikes turn left at the summit and go up the road by the pit to the "real" summit, and when you get there go right up to the tower on your right, for a super wrap around view. If your bikes are more street type, turn right and go out to the picnic park, if you can sit there for a half hour or so, you will leave any problems that are vexing your soul there when you head back down the mountain, it's OK they'll just blow off out into sea. The Trip back to the Cabins is almost all down hill. Go grab one of those lobster sandwiches over at the Wreck Cove General Store and kick your feet up for an hour or two. In the afternoon head south on yer bikes and about 10K down the Cabot Trail is the road down to Little River Shore, (only Paved Road that goes off to the left) Here you'll find a working fishing village where the fishermen catch those delicious lobster. There's also a nice little museum that shows a bit of the history of fishing in our area. If you go over just South of the breakwater you will find a cozy little beach, just great to catch some rays, or have a NickNick (what my oldest daughter used to call a picnic) If you don't feel like cooking supper when you get back then turn left when you drive back to the Cabot Trail and go about 5K South to the Clucking Hen, if your staying for a few days with us at the cabins you will be returning here lots, not only for the food but to take home their scrumptious baked stuff. In the evening take a drive up into the Highlands on the Wreck Cove Road, almost directly across from the entrance to the cabins. You can watch the sunset over the highland lakes or drive out to Surge Lake for another ocean viewscape.
Get up bright and early today (somewhere between 9 and 10 A.M.) and pack a nice big lunch and cold drinks and take a hike up Wreck Cove River Valley, past the huge sugar maple bush to the very top of this magnificent mountain valley then follow the dirt road along Wreck Cove Lake and back out to Surge lake, now along the dams to the very edge of the escarpment, if you walk out to the tower you will be looking out over your Cabins almost 1100 feet below, and on to Bird Islands, and the grand old North Atlantic beyond. Again you saved the best for last, there's a lovely trail heading back down to the Cabins ***Note when you come back out the road from the tower, don't go up that little road to the dam but veer left and down the path. When you get back cook up lots of Kraft Dinner relax and kick your feet up in front of the TV or the Campfire ……you've earned your rest.
