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.

gifts from the sea (continued)

Dylan and Skipper came by to show us what they had found washed up on the shore. They brought me an unusually dark purple sea urchin for my collection.
They found a bounty of buckets, buoys and lines. You never know when you'll need more.
They found Charlie Brown.
An excellent coffee mug from a very high class place down the shore beyond Lockeport.
A perfectly useful matched pair of lobster claws, size extra large.
With his handy new claws, Dylan is demonstrating the proper use of a chest freezer which is also a recycled item, new to us, but which was not found on the beach. That would be another story, really. Maybe Greg will tell it in his next book.
