Photo of the Week April 16, 2010

It's Friday once again and here is the latest Photo of the Week on Cape Breton Living website. On a quick stop in town for a coffee at Tim's, I snapped this photo of the buildings across the street. The village of St Peter's is working on a beautification project and being revitalized with a new look on the main street with professionally designed fa├žade and streetscape improvements. I must say that I do like the new look along Grenville Street and congratulate the Village of St Peter's on a fantastic job, which is still today a work in progress.

The Blue Heron is back

First thing this morning, before my first coffee, I walk down to the road to pick up my newspaper and as I pull the paper out of the box, I spotted the large Blue Heron, back from its winter vacation. He looks as if he's trying to keep warm, with its neck all tucked in, looking as if he's thrown a big blanket over his shoulders or should I say his wings. It's not an easy task to capture an Blue Heron on camera. As I got a little closer, in a blink of an eye, he was up in the air flying away. Lucky for me, he just made a loop around and landed a few feet away from his first spot in the pond. Glad to see them back, another sign of spring.

Sunny Sunday

The weather always seem to be a good topic here on Cape Breton Island. We've been getting some nice days lately, with temperatures just above the zero mark, but today, it was just like a summer day. Perfect for this Easter Sunday with family.  Even the the breeze was warm, making it just right for a walk along the shore after our big dinner.  Heard the peepers for the first time last evening. They must have known we were going to get this beautiful sunny day today. Spring is really here....
