A Recent Review of this guide

Brenda showed us her winter home of Bonaire Island in Dutch ABC islands. And just like that trip, Cape Breton become a "real" place not just a big shore excursion from the ship. Seeing where she grew up, learning about her family's history and exploring an "island in an Island" was so much fun with Brenda. Her Oat Cakes are good eating as well. We now have a piece of Cape Breton coal to sit beside our salt from Bonaire to remind us of the treat time we had in both places. We love Brenda's enthusiasm.
