An unmarried officer's quarter in the King's Bastion Barracks...Fort Louisbourg. Married officers lived in their own homes in the town.

Link to information on Fort Louisbourg:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fortress_of_Louisbourg

In June we travelled by rail from Vancouver (British Columbia) to Montreal (Quebec) where we spent five nights. We then took an overnight train to Moncton (New Brunswick). Next we drove to Prince Edward Island, Cape Breton (Nova Scotia), and flew home from Halifax.

Sounds like "a good night's sleep", Suzy! LOL Did they provide you with breakfast...or was it cook your own, or did you have to go into town? :D

We didn't see the so-called cots that the regular soldiers had, Wendy, but those on duty in the guardhouse at the entrance slept on a hard board with a rough woollen blanket. The board was less than three metres long, it was tilted at the top with a small, kick board at the bottom to keep you from sliding off, and it slept six soldiers at a time. This bed would have been Heaven compared to what the common soldier had. ;)

That just looks so cozy, and I love that bed. - Wendy

Yes! Thank you for providing the name of the walk! There was a family of fox living over in that area (near the cross). We took the Ruins Walk about 6 am in the fog. We couldn't "escape" until 8 o'clock (we were locked in) and could NOT stay on the ground pads in the tent for another second!

We didn't go over that way, Suzy...we left around 4:00 p.m. and we were tired and frozen. I don't really know if it's open to the public as we looked over the fence near the Louisbourg cross and it was all closed off. Are you thinking of "The Ruins Walk"...where the hospital and cemeteries were...it's listed as 2.3 km?

Did you get to explore the section of the fort that was just being unearthed? Jim and I are trying to recall what they called it...with no luck. It was on the opposite side of the road from the fortress-out on the peninsula.

Plus he gets a bed and a fireplace, Ardy. The troops share two to a bunk as one of them was always on duty, no linen, a ratty, rough blanket...and probably limited heat...but then the thick stone walls do offer some protection. This was the room of an officer who held a specific position but I can't remember what it was and it doesn't say in the brochure. ❤️

Glad you're enjoying it, Jill. :)))
