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.

It is both good, and strange, to be back at my previous job for the summer. Good because… they are great people to work with. Good because I get to walk around a lot, or at least stand at the … Continue reading
