Fog

If you can’t get out of the fog, get into it.
That’s just what I did this morning as I set out for my daily walk. Living on the east side of Cape Breton Island, fog is something that we must just accept as it comes in from the cool Atlantic Ocean and usually hangs around for days or even weeks.  So as I head out, instead of snapping pictures of shimmering white seagulls in the blue sky or the awesome scenic view that we are blessed with, I’m out there looking around and appreciating the closer surroundings blending into a soft background.
As I’m writing this post, the sun is now trying to break through the dissipating fog…. Come on sun!

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 www.capebretonliving.com , 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 www.capebretonliving.com 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!
