We have now settled into our new home in  the Yarmouth area. It is great to once again meet old friends and relatives, after being away for the past thirty-four years. I have met some of my past teachers, such as Richard Crabbe, Don Burns, and Peter Eldridge. Some of you may recognize the names.I havn't seen them since High School days. They havn't changed a bit.
One of the concerns of this area is Tourism. How can things be developed or changed to improve this major industry in this area? 
There are many who monitor this great web site and contribute with your comments.You e-mail about your past family history and of your recent visits to the area.
I would like to ask for your input into this very important subject. You can e-mail me direct and I will pass your comments on to those that are working so hard to make improvements to the Tourism Industry. I believe that there may be some great suggestions out there and I encourage you to pass them on.
You can make a differance.I would like to as well.

Comments: First time here, is it really Ceder Lake or Cedar Lake ? I know , I am a prick, as my "Missus" keeps telling me,but how are my grandchildren supposed to become literate when even the schools aren't teaching it? My youngest is 30 and I believe this attitude of the schools started around then. If you have an employee 30 or younger, you better check their spelling on anything other than internal office memos etc. Hey, maybe it is Ceder, just checking.Thanks, Roy Killam

Thanks Roy for taking the time  to point this out to me I have made the correction.   Thanks for the other contributions you made to the web site.  Happy New Year.

We love watching the ever changing tides of the Atlantic and enjoy the abundance of wildlife that visits our farm regularly. Many tourist stop here to take pictues and we have met alot of nice people from many parts of the world. Evenings we enjoy some of the most beatiful sunsets seen anywhere in the world. It is a good place to call home.

Comments: Hi, I'm trying to have more informations on Briar Lakes (the one with 4 islands).
So I'd be really glad iy any of you could send me pictures or more information on briar lakes, suche as:
-does it get iced on winter so that you can go over?
-How deep the water are?
Does it have plenty of forest around?
what to do in summertime?
I might move to briar lakes comunity, so I'll appreciate every information.
Thanks a lot
Stefano Bibi
Webmaster Comment;  I am not sure of the Briar Lakes..... I think you may be referring to the Bras d'Or Lakes, Cape Breton..  If so the following link {http://museum.gov.ns.ca/mnh/nature/nhns2/900/916.htm}will provide you with some information on what I consider on of the most beautiful places I have been.  Of course, I am from that area so I may be a bit bias.

Comments: Hi

What a nice site. I used to spend my school holiday summers at my late grandparents (Mr/Mrs George Hadley) in Pembroke. I remember riding my bike to the dyke to buy soft drinks and basball cards. I'd go down for a swim at the beach and then I'd watch and help the fishplant workers prepare the herring for the smoke house (kippers).
I recognise many of the houses. My uncles and cousins still live there. Hello to everyone. Please drop me a line if there's anyone who knows me.

Comments: Of all the places in the world, Port Maitland is my favorite place to be. I have stayed there numerous times since I was a child. I have a cousin in Port Maitland, Brian Smith and his family. My uncle Cecil Smith, owned a boat that he would charter for deep-sea fishing excursions. My Aunt Tressa was the best cook I ever knew, and I absolutly loved staying with them in the summer time, while on family vacations. Needless to say, I love Port Maitland, and have some of my best childhood memories from there. My Dad was George Gaudet from Beaver river, and My mom is from Belleville Nova Scotia..Jacqueline LeBlanc..I just love port Maitland..I welcome any emails..

Do you know of any history of the Island? I purchased the property from Chris Perry. I think it was once part of the land of a family of area doctors before the lake was flooded. The cabin has 1914 ingraved on the hearth. Also do you know of any web sites that I can purchase or download a ariel photo of these properties? Thanks and have a great day.
