Steve stayed on board and I walked around the city, detouring whenever a walking trail appeared. In the course of the day, I learned about the coal and steel industry, which essentially ceased operations in 2001 after a long history. Coal was mined for Fortress Louisbourg in the 18th century and steel production began in the early 1900's. It's all explained on a series of 20 concrete markers alongside Muggah Creek, previous location of the steelworks.

It was a beautiful day as I walked on paths and not-so paths (google maps called them "trails", when they were actually currently construction sites), but Baille Ard Nature trails were nice, as was the walk around the city streets. Housing was nice, not much different from Ottawa :)
