Early summer pics from Cape BretonPosted: July 24, 2013
My friends Christine and Doug Coolen own and operate St. Ann’s Motel, “A View With A Room,” which I’ve spoken highly about here. In my not-so-humble opinion there is no better place to stay, and no other place to stay, when you visit Cape Breton. (Trip Advisor agrees with me, by the way.)
St. Ann’s Harbour is located on the east side of Cape Breton. It is an almost enclosed body of water, fed on the north end by the North River, and it empties through a narrow channel into St. Ann’s Bay.
The South Gut area of St. Ann’s Harbour is home to St. Ann’s Motel and the Gaelic College.
Enough of the geography lesson. Christine was kind enough to send pics taken this late spring/early summer from the motel on the shore of St. Ann’s Bay. I’ve been there in the late summer/early fall, and have seen Christine’s pics of the winter landscape, but these are amazing.
