I’d love to hear from you! Here are the ways you can reach out:
Hei, Hei Leah from Stavanger, Norway. I am an 54 year old Cape Bretoner who lives away from home and has done so for years….but home is home! My husband Bruce and I have lived with our son Sandy (16) in Norway for 3 years now. I have a daughter going to Dalhousie University but she also lived with us for a time on our expat assignment in Damascus, Syria. I have a favourite story to tell….when we got to Damascus my husband took us to the NATO base where every Friday evening a different country hosted a family social. On my first visit I could hear a young man yelling to my husband….”where is she…where is your CB lass?” It turned out he was from North Sydney and was leaving so wanted to pass the gauntlet of CB hospitality to me! I took up the challenge but given my new surroundings….I couldn’t help but be amazed at meeting a Cape Bretoner so far from home! We are new homeowners now in Middle River and can’t wait to spend the summer at home! I really enjoy your blog! Keep up the good work!
Thanks Helen for dropping by and leaving a comment! 🙂 I imagine you’ve got some really amazing stories to tell. When is the book coming out? 🙂
Hi Leah, like most good things on the internet, I stumbled upon this blog quite by accident. I love your idea and as well as KLEE RADIO, I publish “Northside This Week” which reaches readers in the Bouladerie, Point Aconi, Bras d’Or, Sydney Mines and North Sydney areas. I would love to write a story about your blog and your “Dream Big Cape Breton”. Let me know when you get a little time and we can make a time to listen to your story – Glen
Wow, that would be great! I’ll get in touch via email.
Very inspirational site. You have the right idea, attitude is everything. As an educator I believe we have a lot of talented youth, they need some inspiration and leadership.
Hi Leah –
I am thoroughly digging this blog. I love NS and Cape Breton, and am returning there this week for Celtic Colours. Please keep writing!
– Scott McKinney (scottmac56)
Thank you! 🙂 I certainly will keep writing. Perhaps I’ll see you at the Festival Club!
That would be awesome. I’m staying at St. Ann’s Motel, my home-away-from-home on my last visit. Walking distance to the Gaelic College! Hope to see you! – Scott.
That’s a great little motel. What a view!
Second full day of my second visit to Cape Breton. I know being a visitor gives one a perspective different from a full-time resident, but even so I trust (hope?) that Capers realize the great beauty you all have around you. This is an amazing place. Just sayin’.
Thanks for visiting and for coming back a second time, Scott! I think most Capers do realize the amazing beauty. Sometimes it takes going away and coming back to really feel it.
Have you been to the Festival Club yet?
No, and to be honest I probably won’t get there this year. Bummer! But I’m an old lady student now, and late nights don’t agree with me. 🙂
Yeah, I understand. These have been much later nights than I’m used to. Can’t do this at home.
Hey Leah! I have a question about your blog. Could you please email me when you get a chance? Thanks!!
I’ve taken a bit of a break from Facebook and realized that I was missing your blog posts! I think I’ve got myself pretty much caught up again now!
Funny how Facebook can leave us so connected and disconnected at the same time, isn’t it?
I’m working on a women’s getaway in November in Baddeck called Beautiful Mess Retreat.
Hi Angela! It’s so nice to hear from you. Your retreat sounds awesome!! I’ll be away at the time, but I wish you all the best with it.
Hello. Did some WWOOF work in Tasmania in 2003 with Paul, Geraldine and Catherine. All told about 3 weeks spent with them. Great times and place that we think of often.
Oh neat!! How did you make the connection that I was also there?

Hi there! I'm Leah Noble, and from 2012 to 2014 this was my blog, "Dream Big Cape Breton." I used this space to share my thoughts, my photographs, and my take on life in Cape Breton.
