Photo of the Week: February 12, 2016

Cape Breton Living Photo of the Week: Port Hawkesbury PierPort Hawkesbury. Standing on the Port Hawkesbury Pier, this is a view of the houses and businesses on Granville St. and  part of the Strait of Canso Yacht Club. In the days before the opening of the Canso Causeway, this is where the car ferries came in, connecting the mainland and Cape Breton Island. This is also where stood a large inviting sign with the words PORT HAWKESBURY WELCOMES YOU TO CAPE BRETON ISLAND for the traffic coming off the ferries. During WWII, my father came from Aylmer Quebec and happened to pose in front of this magnificent sign. I’m wondering if this sign still  exists or if it was ruined with time and weather. If you can, check out one of my blogs Where My Father Was Standing for a bit of a story and photos.

If you’d like to keep track of the weather conditions in L’Ardoise, located on the southeast shore, check out the Cape Breton Living webcams by clicking on this link: or simply clicking on the Cape Breton webcams link on the Menu Bar above.

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.

    1. Thank you! It sure is a beautiful place in the summer. I was there a couple of days ago enjoying a stroll on the boardwalk.
