The wildlife in Cape Breton is quite used to seeing tourists.
The moose especially seem nonchalant.
The birds are a little more wary.
Though not the seagulls as much. Most of these photos are barely cropped.
Yikes, we’re going to get wet!
Reunion of a pair
We even got to see them fishing.
And they always come back up in time to miss being hit by the next wave!
And another style of fishing…
They know what fishing boats carry!
On the topic of fishing boats, we were actually in Cape Breton during the lobster season. We had the amazing experience of watching the fishermen at work.

Though it rained one day while we were there, we saw several really beautiful sunsets. It was a beautiful vacation and a wonderful time as a family.

To all our readers, my apologies on the lack of blog content lately! Life has been incredibly full in the Frazer home.
Our family was able to take a family vacation together the last week of May. Yes, we all, including Stephen, were able to get away. Yeah! The destination: Cape Breton Island, NS.
Cape Breton is a beautiful place of rocky slopes, wind-scarred trees, rolling oceans, crashing waves, screaming gulls, a not-so-wild moose! I’ll let the pictures tell the story…
The O-Tentik where we stayed
A beautiful waterfall nestled inland
The hills of Cape Breton ore steep and rugged
Insect-eating pitcher plants in a bog
Watch out, Sarah!
Your feet will get wet!
The Cabot trail runs all the way around the island, hugging the coast most of the way
Abandoned lobster traps
My favourite graveyard
An old, one-room schoolhouse
The red dots in the water are buoys marking lobster traps – more on that later
Well, maybe I’ll make a second post with more…
Though winter has held on long, the rapidly rising temperatures are causing our snow to melt and the crocuses to bloom.
Disappointed at the loss of our snow, Daddy and Mommy went south to look for some more… Well, maybe that’s not why they went to the White Mountains! 🙂 But they did enjoy a day of hiking.
It was a beautifully warm day with bright skies and shimmering snow. And though not deep at the parking area, the snow was mounded up at the higher elevations.Praise the Lord for such beauty in His Creation!
