On the far northern tip of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada, the tiny community of Bay St. Lawrence is home to fishermen who brave the North Atlantic Ocean in fair weather or foul. Their homes are scattered along the shoreline. Many, like this one, are built with a ridge of hills protecting them from the wild ocean storms, while having quite water inlets close at hand for easy access to the wharves and fishing sheds in the village.

    They certainly look to have stood the ravages of time very well – just like you and me have done eh? LOL I like the way you shot this with all the contrasting greens nicely set off by the sparkling blue of the sea and inlet. A good one George mate.

  • Some of those old houses are 100 years old and more, and they get some wild storms down on that northern tip. But being in the shelter of the little ridge really pays off in longevity! Lovely little place to just go and hibernate and forget the world.
    Have a good one.. George
