L'Ardoise and surrounding towns abound in wild berries - strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, dewberries - even cranberries and foxberries. Free clam digging is available within five miles. Concerts and Ceilidhs are available in many locations throughout Cape Breton, some featuring the unique brand of Cape Breton fiddle music. Fortress Louisbourg is a world class historic re-enactment of a French Acadian fortress town. The beach in L'Ardoise, in the hamlet of Point Michaud, six miles from us, is 1.5 miles long, considered to be world class in quality. Fishing from shore is available in the 300 meter canal connecting the Atlantic with the Bras d'Or Lakes, about 7 miles from our house. We have a 120 degree view of the Atlantic and the harbour.
In the front yard there is a volleyball/badminton net, quite likely on the ground. Stakes are available with the net, if it needs to be erected, and equipment is in the ping pong room.
