A Home By The Sea

George Cousins

North Saanich,British Columbia, Canada

Artist's Description

At the northern tip of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada, is the very tiny village of Capstick, and this is one of the neat little country homes sitting close to the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. With it’s private waterfront, sandy beach, neatly mowed lawns and the colours of the autumn trees around it, it would be hard to find a more peaceful and serene setting for a home. Of course, it’s also secluded. To get to Capstick, one has to travel over the Cabot Trail, which encircles the northern part of the island and contains Cape Breton Highlands National Park. At the top end of the Trail, you must go onto another road leading to Cape North, Bay St. Lawrence, Capstick and Meat Cove, all very scenic and very secluded. But to get away from the world for awhile, it’s hard to find a better way, or one that is relatively accessible.
