Something to Think about!

I can't wait for the Snow to melt. Maybe I'll buy a load of salt. (kidding). On the overhead map, our first year will be concentrated on the right of it. We closed on that property first and 25 Old Road Loop was ready for the changes to get us going on year one. But 121 White Point rd on the left has much more potential. I kinda like the peninsula that is sticking out in South Harbour, I think we'll be able to do something very special in that area. Not a 100% sure yet but it certainly would be amazing to do some like in the pictures.

This is the kind of stuff that keeps me awake at night 😳My mind never stops. This would be somewhat of a challenge because I would have to figure out what to do with them come winter time. They say to every problem, there's a solution, My question would be at what cost? I'm thinking on the line of being able to raised them up a good 4 to 5 feet for winter because of Ice Jams but I could be wrong. Any Locals could direct me here would be a plus. Taking them all out for Winter would be another solution...

Hopefully we can have some of these ready for rent in 2020. Blue Bayou Resort has plenty of room to grow and I can't wait to welcome our guest this coming Season.

Whale Watching Excursions Anyone

One very cool excursion 10 minutes away from Blue Bayou Resort is Dixons Zodiac Seafari. You can take the Cabot Trail Straight to Neil's Harbour and book a Whale watching tour with Lowell Dixon, owner of Dixons Zodiac Seafari.

Or you can just Stay on White Points road and enjoy a much better scenic drive to Neil's Harbour. This will probably take you an extra half hour to do because you'll be stoping everywhere to take pictures. Especially if you decide to drive right to the tip of White Point. But don't miss the Boat... White Point ain't going anywhere, you can stop and enjoy it on your way back. I really think that it's really special to drive into Neil's Harbour This way. You're leaving the forest and driving in a coastal fishing harbour community in a blink of an eye.

The Cabot Trail from South Harbour to Neil's Harbour is probably the most Boring part of all the Cabot Trail that can be avoided by simply taking White Point Road. Probably over 95% of the traffic will drive on the Cabot Trail and miss one of the Nicest coastal route in all the Maritime. Tourist that don't stay up here are too busy driving and not busy enough relaxing. How many people went from Baddeck to Baddeck, all 300km of it in the span of 5 hours drive?

Come and relax where it matters the most.
And let Blue Bayou Resort be your host.
Come and enjoy the Highlands like you've never done before.
An Oasis awaits you and will rejuvenate your soul.

We'll be welcoming people all over the world as far as Australia, Great Britain and Germany have already Book with us and we cannot wait to welcome them into John Cabot's Land. Rediscover where the very beginning of our amazing country started in the most comfortable way and in a natural setting. Explore the Harbours beaches and hills that welcomed our first explorers to this country.

Everything I did in my life up to this year, I am now using to make this dream a reality. That's kinda why I started with the famous expedia commercial quote. I'm sure some of you remember that commercial. But in reality, you kinda have to had lived a similar life to mine to be able to get our campground off the ground... I mean on the ground. lol. There's no expedia in campground building.😆

The Connection between Blue Bayou Resort and Wilkie Surgarloaf Mountain in the Cape Breton Highlands.

As you can see, all of these pictures have something in Common. On all of these pictures, Wilkie Sugarloaf Mountain is in the background. Some of the pics are from South Point Beach, Some from Mountain Pine Adventures the the rest where all taken at the Blue Bayou Resort. I have seen some from White Point also that are pretty amazing...

Sugarloaf can be seen from all of Aspy valley. White Point, South Harbour, Cape North, Dingwall... We all Have one thing in Common. Wilkie Sugarloaf is the Stand Alone Mountain North of the Cabot Trail at 412m high. Although it is not the highest in Nova Scotia, Wilkie Sugarloaf Mountain is Still a pretty sight to see.

Get ready to have this Mountain in your Background this Summer. 🤠

Blue Bayou Resort Tipis will all have names. These are sketches of our Tipis.

Lot T1 will be "The Bear and the Raven"
Lot T2 will be "The Deer Family"
Lot T3 will be "The Caribou"
Lot T4 will be "The Moose"
Lot T5 will be "The Eagle Sun"
Lot T6 will be "The Sundance"
Lot T7 will be "The Midnight Borealis"

There's also going to be a Tipi that will be apart from the village at the water's edge that will be called " The Rising Sun" We are keeping this one Secret for now because it will not be available online. It's good to have a backup place to stay when you have 30 Glamping site. This one will be #31. The Spare Tipi in case the need may be. It will be set at the right of the dock Where the Sun Rise and it will be very pleasing to look at from the water.

Our Tipis will be Art monuments on our site, giving our land an authentic spiritual feeling that will be felt when you drive onto our campground. They will stand over 25 ft tall and be the colourful pieces at the centre of our beautiful campsite.

I had to convince a few people to get these Tipis. The Domes are taking over in popularity because they are the newest, coolest and most comfortable way to camp in style. In the End, Blue Bayou Resort is at the Heart of the Highland but if you take a look at our map, you will realize that The Tipi Village is at the Heart of our Blue Bayou Resort. The Tipis will give a lot of life to our Campground and create a lot of smiles along the way.

Unless you're in School or Retired you either WORK or you're on VACATION... Sometime you're on a WORK-VACATION. Here's what I noticed... We're working too much. We work way more than we VACA. That's Totally not fair. We need a balance here LOL.

Blue Bayou Resort is trying to balance your life by simply making your vacation so awesome that it feels like your life is balance. You can enjoy the scenery, the Beautiful Beaches, some zip line fun, some soul searching hiking trip on top of mountains, to coastal reefs and to the Heart of the mountains where streams and falls comes alive. Enjoy a Kayak or canoe excursion on our sleepy South Harbour. Use some of our paddle boards to enjoy the Deltas of Aspy Bay. There's no better place to enjoy sharing life with your love ones.

I will only see smiles this up coming season because at Blue Bayou Resort, the stars are simply brighter, the air is simply fresher and your life will simply be more joyful. You will Connect with Nature like you never done before and in a comfortable scene. A rainy day at Blue Bayou Resort beats any work day if you ask me.

I can't wait for this Snow to melt...

The SEVEN Tipi experience at Blue Bayou Resort.

We haven't talk too much about Tipis because The Geodesic Domes are stealing the show. Blue Bayou Resort still believes that Our Tipis will get back the attention that it Truly deserve. For a while, at the beginning, we were positive about having tipis at our Resort but we weren't sure on how to go about them.

We were thinking of including beds for comfort and adding furniture and even thinking about getting bigger ones to potentially adding bathrooms in them like we will be doing with the domes. But the more we were looking at online pictures on the Tipis the more we realize that keeping them simple and using them in the same way they were once used is what our guests would prefer from experiencing our Tipis. And Yes, You will have a fire pit in them. For fire safety we opt in using Concrete slabs for them and having a fire pit set in the middle.

So There you go, We lowered down the price per night to $120/night because the Tipis won't need much attention anyway. We will ask of you to bring your own bedding or Sleeping bag and mattress because you'll be sleeping on a concrete FLOOR. The Tipis will be 18ft diameter round and will Stand Tall hovering around 25ft to 28ft high. They will be a true piece of Art on our campground. The Village will Include 7 Tipis and can be enjoyed in group camping. A maximum of 6 person per Tipi will be allowed. We have started the process of building the bathroom area to served the Village and it will be completed just in time for the season opening.

We can accommodate groups of a maximum 42 people for the Tipi village. There will be a village fire pit in the middle and a covered picnic area with charcoal BBQs at your disposition. It will be a great village to share with friends and families. I feel like the community fire pit will create a lot of friendships and I can already here Music playing there in the background. I'll definitely make my way up there at one point with my Guitar and enjoy some good times with all of you.

We wan't you to Live Experiences at our resort and that's why we Offer two different style of camping. Domes are built for comfort and serenity and Tipis are for group/family experience and spiritual living. Both will offer you a great level of comfort and Calm your Soul.

Tipis would be amazing for group camping or a beautiful family experience. Book a Stay in a Tipi at the :

DOME SWEET DOME

From HOMES TO DOMES, the future of Homes in Canada. Since we have been looking at domes to use for our Glamping Resort we learned so much about the Domes and how beneficial they can be. Therefor we are actually considering building something like this in the near future. We love the idea that a HOME UNDER A DOME does not need to be shingled, painted or weather proof in anyway. And it also doesn't need to be Heavily insulated the way we're insulating homes these days in Canada. It would feel like building a Tree House inside one of those domes. You can use natural material to build your home, eliminating all the chemical products like Pressure Treated lumber, Silicone, Pitch Tar, Spray Foam... You don't even need to paint the Exterior.

When your home is loosing Heat in the winter, a lot of it will be retained by the dome creating a third layer of insulation. Having the Green House Effect in the Winter combine with the natural geothermal heat coming from the ground inside the dome and the Energy produce by living plants and fruit trees will not only keep the air ambient, but also produce clean oxygen.

I picture myself in one of these now in the beginning of February when its minus 20 degree celsius outside. I picture myself on my Outside Deck wearing normal clothes and writing this blog to all of you. It blows my mind how my new "DOME" would feel so much cosy. Say goodbye to January Blahs, Say goodbye to all the bad stuff a long winter does to your soul. Let the Sunshine in, Welcome life, Play a game of billiard on your rooftop deck in the middle of a snowstorm, Sleep under a Blanket of Stars every night, Enjoy reading a book soaking up the February Sun on your terrace outside, Because you CAN.

I'm seriously considering this as my next Home and those that knows me well also knows that I'm knowledgable and very much capable in doing something like this. In a way, I feel that Just the savings in having no roof and not worrying about weather conditions that affects the conventional homes of today would offset a big portion of the cost of the dome. That's not calculating the the saving in energy cost overtime.

If I caught someones interest, let me know. I can't wait to entertain you all at the "https://bluebayouresort.com/" this Summer, It will be a blast.
