Hi there! I'm Leah Noble, and this is my blog, "Dream Big Cape Breton." It's about my life, which is mostly lived on Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, Canada.
It's about making a good life, and staying here instead of leaving, as long as that's possible.
It's about random photos, lovely places and appreciating what is here.

Time is flying these days. But the long weekend was glorious. The weather was beautiful, I got to see some friends, and have tea and catch-up chats, and take some nice walks, but also have some chilled-out time at home. … Continue reading
This past Sunday, the 6th, was the third one in a row that I have been able to go for a hike by myself, somewhere in nature. (It can be by the ocean, or by a river, or just woods … Continue reading
I was raised by an agnostic and a Buddhist, both of whom didn’t care one way or another for church services. As a result, my brother and I weren’t discouraged nor encouraged to attend church – if we wanted to, … Continue reading
