The Ocean

When in Cape Breton the ocean is never far away . As a child I fell asleep comforted by the fog horn...to me its forlorn wail meant home and safety!

The music

The next thing that comes to mind is the music. When there is a gathering of two or more for whatever the occasion a guitar or a harp is sure to appear . Its never hard to find a singer either !

My homey homeland

Its hard to believe that it has taken me this long to finally start working on this page. After all Cape Breton is where I was born and grew up. In many ways it'll always be home to me.

I'll try my best to write some pages that will allow the warmth and beauty of this special island come through. Not sure if I can do it.

I guess the first there is the natural beauty. There are rolling hills and mountains, a coastline that is everchanging and many lakes and of course the Mira River.
Cape Breton voted 2nd best naturally beautiful place on Earth: National Geographic Traveler, "Destinations Scorecard: 115 Places Rated"
