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.

Shelburne's new day

Greg's most recent article is out in Coastal Life, the new bi-monthly magazine for western Nova Scotia.  You can get Coastal Life locally at Spencer's Garden Centre. The beautiful photographs of Shelburne that accompany the article are by Alan Delaney, Shelburne's new mayor. That's Alan standing by Shelburne Harbour in the one photograph Greg took. 

Greg enjoyed writing the article because it gave him the opportunity to hear from Alan and other town leaders about how Shelburne is moving in new directions.   

The cover story for this issue of Coastal Life is about one of our favourite music groups, Grand Derangement. They are a fantastic Acadian group from the Pubnico area in south west Nova Scotia.
