There's a little humor involved in this week's pick - I don't know how many of you have heard of Cape Breton Island but apparently there's been a surge in real estate inquiries - from American citizens who are nervous of the election outcome.
You can read the article at the ROLLING STONE magazine.
Cape Breton Island is a magnificent part of the Maritimes here in Canada and part of the Province of Nova Scotia ( off the Atlantic ocean ) with strong Celtic roots. So.......after hearing about this "surge " I decided to check out the real estate situation and I just may move there myself !
I'll show you a little of the island itself first and then show you what you can get
