Life on McNutt's Island, off Nova Scotia's southwest shore.
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.
A mink searched intensely for food in the area behind the house. We wondered what he was preying upon. Until we saw what he was after -- a smooth green snake. He was quite successful, from his point of view.
