We take Highway 6 for 10 minutes then turn off on Cable Bay Road. It twists and turns and becomes more and more narrow - not quite Isle of Mull single lane, but cars passing come within less than a foot of each other. After 20 minutes we come to almost the end of the road and the start of Cable Bay Trail. Across the way is Pepin Island, which is connected to the mainland by the now single lane Cable Bay Road. The start of the trail includes 20 long stairs, then we are into a farmer's field. We stop and take in the view of the bay. The trail gets steeper - luckily every once in a while there is a bench. After a bit we come across a herd of cows who have chosen to graze and rest directly on the trail. We slowly walk around and through them, avoiding cow pies as we go.
The trail becomes even more steep. Anne trudges on while William enjoys the views from a bench. After a short while we throw in the towel and start back down the trail. This is a trail that should be done by someone with more stamina and/or on a cloudy day when the sun is not beating down. Nonetheless, the scenery has been spectacular.
We stop at the Cable Bay Cafe for a coffee, the only restaurant within 30 kilometers. It's cute with an interesting laid-back vibe.
