Dream Land

She sleeps so much now, rarely gets up before noon. This is her summer vacation. She is growing and happy.

200 years ago, her Great Great Grandfather was born in paradise in Washabuck Cape Breton. And her Great Grandfather couldn’t wait to leave for the excitement of the big towns and cities.

I say paradise, A house on a hill with good land and a fresh water well, with an inland salt sea at their doorstep. The great Bras d’or Lakes.

We are trying to get back into that house. That is our dream…
