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.

Cruising to McNutt's Island

Sherri and Ken Taylor (pictured here) are readying their 44 foot Marine Trader trawler Brown Eyed Girl for a summer of cruises between the Town of Shelburne and McNutt's Island. The cruises will go out twice each day. Passengers will have a choice of cruising all the way around the island, or being dropped off on the island during the morning trip and then picked up again on the afternoon trip. Either way, it's a great opportunity to see a place that is not that easy to get to.  Ken and Sherri will also give their passengers a tour of historic Shelburne from the particularly lovely perspective of the inner harbour.

We will be happy to see visitors on the island this summer. We are not very far off the main road and hope people will stop by on their way to or from the lighthouse.  Or if you're taking the circle cruise around the island, wave at us.
