Cape Breton Photo of the Week: Irish Vale

Cape Breton Living Photo of the Week: Irish Vale by the Lake Irish Vale, Cape Breton Island

Heading back home from a day of shopping in Sydney. The drive on the old Highway 4 by the Bras d’Or Lakes was miserably cold and windy causing blowing snow and whiteout conditions. It was nice getting home to a warm wood stove though.

Cape Breton Island is a small island on the northeast tip of Nova Scotia, Canada. No matter where you are on this picturesque island, no matter where you look, one will find a picture perfect occasion to capture a slice of Nova Scotia’s masterpiece.
