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.

Roseneath repair

The repair of my wooden rowboat, Roseneath, is also a sign of spring around here.
She's been lying rather forlornly down on the shore all winter.Today Greg loaded her onto a trailer and pulled her up to the side yard, where it will be easier for him to work on her.
He'll sand, do a bit of caulking, prime, repaint, and make some minor repairs.
Soon she will be fresh again and ready to sail the seven seas.

Wonderful pictures, as always, Anne!
What is it about cadet blue and creamy yellow that works so well together! Love the combination.
That final shot, showing the water over Roseneath's bows is great.
