In May 2011, after four years of life on McNutt's Island, we moved to Montreal. This blog remains, though, as a (sort of) daily record of our time on the island, and a winding path for anyone who would like to meander about among its magical places. For additional perspectives and insights I recommend Greg's book, Island Year: Finding Nova Scotia (2010), and my Bowl of Light (2012). I'll continue to post once in a while. If you do want to read this blog, one option would be to begin at the beginning of it (which is, as we all know, in blog-world, at the end), and read forward, concluding with the most recent entry. It's a journal, really, so it does makes more sense if you read it that way. But, you know, read it any way you like.

Backyard archaeology

Over the past two summers we have dug around the west and south side of the house, next to the kitchen, where we planned to put a small flower and herb garden.  It's mostly in that area that we have dug up our artifacts.  We don't know anything about ceramics, though, so these are just another reminder to us of the life that has gone on here before us.
