Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site of Canada
This reconstructed 18th Century Fortress on the SE coast of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia was our tour for today. Re-enactors in period costume and excellent tour guide made this a memorable day. And the weather cooperated!

Here is what the parking lot at the Fortress looked like after our group arrived!
