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.

Yesterday at the marina we had a little party. The occasion was that it was forty years since Charles Weaver began operating this business in Baddeck. He started it as “Baddeck Marine and Sports” and over the years it became … Continue reading
The other day, a customer and I were chatting. He sells bread at various farmer’s markets and was remarking on how his sales were down this year over the last couple of years. “Oh, that’s too bad,” I said. “What … Continue reading
