January's Photos

From the Cape Breton Living website

As some of you might already know, every Friday a new scenic photo of our beautiful island is posted on the site. If you’re wondering and would like to check this out, you can find them on the Photo of the Week page of the Cape Breton Living website. This January 2014, we ended up with an extra Friday, which means instead of 4 photos for the month, we ended up with a bonus one making it five scenic photos for January.
The first photo below is of the first sunrise taken on January 1st, 2014. Thankfully we were blessed with a clear wintry sky and only a few fluffy white clouds. The next four week’s photos, we seem to have a theme consisting of snow covered roof tops…

Recent updates

From the Cape Breton Living website

Hello 2014… Cheers to a brand new year folks!  What better time to tell you about a couple recent changes done on the Cape Breton Living website. First, on the Photo of the Week page, the last 3 week’s photos were added and are conveniently posted below the current Photo of the Week. So if you missed the last week’s photo or just wish to see them again, they are right there just a click away. 
Another change to the website is the URL you type in the address bar. The correct address is , If you find yourself using other URLs like “vhost1…” or “stpeterscable…”, you might then be re-directed or end up on a page that doesn’t exist. Best thing to do is go to and once on the website, you may bookmark it for future reference.
One more thing, it’s not exactly new, but on the Webcam pages and the Photo of the Week page, there’s a comment box for you to share your thoughts with other viewers. The next time you visit the website and you have time to spare, we’d love to hear from you!

The Cabot Trail Road Trip

Photo of the Week: Pleasant Bay on the Cabot Trail
This week's photo for March 8, 2013 was taken while we set out for a day road trip around our lovely island of Cape Breton. We started off the trip by making our way to Port Hastings where we had a hearty breakfast then on to Route 19 to drive the Cabot Trail in a clockwise direction. Not much snow in the fields until we reached the Cape Breton Highlands National Park all the way through St Ann's, Sydney and Big Pond on highway 4. It looks like the north part of the island kept most of its snow while in the south half of the island, most of the snow has melted away and showing signs of spring instead. That's ok too. It was a good day for our trip, the roads were bare and the scenery up in the mountains looked spectacular with snow covered trees,  just like we drove into another world.

East view camera is back up!

Here it is once again, the east view webcam is back up on the Cape Breton Living website. It's been a few months since the east view camera was last seen on the website, but the west view camera has been faithfully keeping updated  shots 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Remember that if you would like to see the webcams in a slightly larger image, click on the link to streaming camera or on the image itself and it will bring you to a page where the image is larger and refreshes automatically every 5 seconds.  So enjoy the views and hope you come back often to check out what the weather might bring in this part of the world, on the south east shore of Cape Breton Island!

On the Cape Breton Living website

This week we finally got to see some sun after a couple of weeks of miserable fog and rain. I wasn't really complaining, but when the day is bright, sunny and warm, people are out and about in a cheerful and uplifting kind of a way... The community comes to life!
