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.

Hurricane aftermath at Cape Roseway

We went up to the lighthouse yesterday afternoon, after the not-really-a-hurricane passed by.I think if a storm loses its hurricane status it loses its name, too, and slips back toward anonymity. It was a wild and beautiful afternoon at Cape Roseway.
The smashing surf was breath-taking. This view looks southwest, toward Yarmouth.
Cape Roseway is more stunning than Peggy's Cove. But unlike Peggy's Cove there is no parking for tour buses and no restaurant here.
Just as I took this picture Greg yelled for me to get away from the rocks.
