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 young neighbour

Susannah is Margot's grand-daughter. She visits the island with Margot and Dave, who built the coziest camp last summer further along the Lower Road. Their place looks right out onto the cove.Susannah wrote a school report about McNutt's Island this year. I was glad that I had the chance to read it this weekend. It was lovely.
This weekend she built a bird house with her Uncle Skipper's help. It will be a lucky bird family that moves into that fine house.
