Keep reading for some tips on how to react if you see a bear during your hike! 🎒🥾🌲

➡️ If you see a bear and it doesn’t see you, remain calm and slowly move away without sound. Do not run away. Have your bear spray readily accessible.

➡️ If you see a bear and it sees you, talk to the bear in a calm, stern tone. This lets the bear know you are a human and not prey. Back away slowly, appear big, and do not drop your backpack.

➡️ Finally, once you are safe, report all bear sightings to: 1-877-852-3100

Hi Everyone!! It’s Alison (the pharmacist). As you may already know, the road at Black Brook is washed out. I’m in Ingonish so will rush down to Neil’s Harbour as soon as I can. We are hoping for later today. We are still open but will not be able to process any prescriptions until I get there. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this may cause today. ❤️❤️
See you soon. I will post again when I am able to get to the pharmacy.

Cape Smokey presents it’s third and final Smokey Sessions concert for 2022 with Slowcoaster, Scientists of Sound and Pro Motocross Athlete, Tyler Medaglia on Friday, September 9 at 7pm.
This high energy rock show with motocross stunts is shaping up to be the biggest party of the summer.
With the strength of their refreshing and versatile sound and intoxicatingly energetic live show, Cape Breton's Slowcoaster have become one of the most popular jam rock bands in Canada. The members' superior musicianship enables the trio to hammer out their own brand of high energy, guitar-based rock that incorporates touches of hip-hop, jazz, reggae and Afro-Cuban grooves. Guitarist / vocalist Steven MacDougall's stellar song writing skills and evocative vocals add a defining soulful texture absent in much of today's rock music.
Scientists of Sound’s signature anthemic rocktronica sound unites raging guitar hooks with hard hitting beats and epic gang vocal melodies. Combining elements of electronica with the energy of a rock band with something to prove at every show, an SOS set leaves the audience feeling like they just climbed a mountain.
Formed from the ashes of East Coast powerhouse bands The Jimmy Swift Band and Ruby Jean and the Thoughtful Bees—Scientists of Sound are producers Craig Mercer (guitar, keys, drums, bass, vocals), Colin Crowell (keyboards, bass, trumpet), and Sean Parsons on drums.
Nova Scotia born and based Pro Motocross Athlete, Tyler Medaglia, is hot off the summer race circuit and joining the party by adding an X Games element to the Smokey Sessions series. The 5X Amateur Champion, 2X National Champion, 5X Team Member of Motocross Des Nation Canadian and AMA Arenacross Lites Champion will be performing stunts in between Scientists of Sound and Slowcoaster sets and his final stunt will be jumping over the Cape Smokey Lodge.
Get your dancing shoes and your cameras ready, Cape Breton; Smokey Sessions is going big in September and this is the end of summer party you are not going to want to miss!
Tickets available at on Friday, August 19 at noon.
Hand Screen Prints by the incredible @midnightoilprintdesign available for purchase at the show!
