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 fresh eye

Bernard Nickerson came to the island yesterday from Shelburne, bringing with him his camera and his eye for the terrific picture.I wish I knew where this wasp nest is.
And this little bird is a wonder.
Even more beautiful jellyfish floating past, in remarkably serene waters.

You can see more of Bernie's perspective on south shore Nova Scotia at his flickr site, including a whale spotted in the harbour during the return trip to Shelburne yesterday on Brown Eyed Girl.

Thanks to Bernie for sharing his McNutt's Island photographs.
