Sydney Nova Scotia

The third day of our cruise took us into the first foreign port - Sydney Nova Scotia on of Cape Breton Island.

We booked a tour with the cruise company for this stop. It took us on an hour-long bus ride to the Alexander Graham Bell museum in Baddeck. Bell held the patent for the telephone and founded AT&T. He continued to experiment with new ideas his entire life and many of his experiments were conducted at his summer home in Baddeck.

The museum was somewhat interesting with early telephones, experimental boats and other devices that Bell worked on while in Baddeck.

Returning to port in Sydney we walked around the port a bit. It's not very big and the "highlight" of the area is the Sydney Fiddle, the largest fiddle in the world.
