Cape Breton–the house

Actually there was nothing particularly nice about the house we rented on Cape Breton, a glorified two-storey shed it was damp and really needed tearing down renovating but on the big plus side the owners allowed us just a two-night stay and it enjoyed a lovely location overlooking St. Anns Bay.

Set on it’s own private 18 acres the house was approached through a small driveway where the house was hidden in amongst the trees out of sight of the road and any neighbours.



The views from the back of the house were spectacular across the bay.


From the house a trail led down through the acreage to the house’s own small private waterfront beach. Views here looking North from the beach in the late afternoon sun on our first evening.


It’s a shame Mojo wasn’t with us on this trip……he would have raced down to this beach, into the water and been very happy !


Views to the West watching the sun go down.



The silhouette of mum snapping away at the views from the beach.


We return back up hill to the house where David has started preparing dinner.  Mum in the rear porch with a glass of wine watches the sunset.


It was certainly a great spot to watch the sunsets over St Anns Bay.
