Nova Scotia: A Place to Call Home

There is a peaceful quality to Nova Scotia that makes you feel right at home. We happen to be spending more time than usual at home this year, but thankfully we shared wonderful memories in Nova Scotia last year to keep me inspired. This selection of photographs were taken as we circumnavigated Cape Breton Island. They include homes, churches, hotels, and historical landmarks all along the way. A land high on beauty, and low on crowds, made Cape Breton Island on Nova Scotia a huge crowd-pleaser for the whole family! Our friends at Authentic Seacoast Resorts are the experts on traveling in Atlantic Canada - look them up if you are curious!

What beautiful pictures Lorraine. I spent some time in Victoria last spring and found that Canada can be a great place for family travel. Don't know if I'll make it that far east, but it does look spectacular.

I love the theme, and they're great photos too. You know we've been spending a lot more time at home too. While I love to travel, I love coming home more.
p.s. Love the new banner.

Love those pictures! I love looking back at our vacation pictures especially when we can't plan any trip. :) Revisiting the trip is part of a fun.

Nova Scotia is so very high on my travel to do list and these pictures remind me why. It just seems so charming and beautiful. Sigh.
