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.

Brown Eyed Girl

Brown Eyed Girl stopped at the government wharf this afternoon to pick up two island visitors. The boat dropped them off this morning and they hiked to the lighthouse, then came by our house for afternoon tea. Brown Eyed Girl makes a second trip from Shelburne in the afternoon, when she takes her passengers all the way around the island, and then picks up anybody she has left off here in the morning. This is the first summer for Ken and Sherri Taylor's Shelburne Harbour Boat Tours. I think they are happy with how well the summer has gone for their new enterprise. We are glad that it offers people a way to visit McNutt's, or to see it up close from every angle.
