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.

a ewe and two lambs

A mother ewe and her two lambs came by the other day.These little lambs are a couple of weeks old.
Already they are quite sturdy.
They will stay close to their mother for a while yet.
And she will stay close to them.
Gradually they will become more independent, but even as they get older they'll stay connected.

How precious! Thanks for all your wonderful posts and pictures. I always look forward to them. They help me to briefly "get away" from life in NYC.

Anne, although I live in the midwest and around plenty of farmland, I honestly don't believe I've ever seen a sheep that looks this fluffy and magnificent. Thanks for sharing these amazing pics.
