Although I wasn't born here, my Cape Breton roots go back several generations. Regardless of where in the world my parents lived, they made a point of taking us "home" to Cape Breton every second summer. They were the best of summers, being able to reconnect with family and friends. After having "grown up" and taught for two years in western Africa, I made my way home to Cape Breton where my parents had just decided to retire. Here I am, still at "home", 27 years later.

    It looks like a real wonderful place to be, by the sea. Once I was involved with foreclosing on Campobello Island, close to your area. It is all green there too.

    Beautiful country, outstanding photographs, and a welcoming spirit. You should have been a travel agent. I look forward to the year that I will finally be able to afford to come to Celtic Colors.
