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.

no lobstering today

It's a wild morning with serious winds, high tide and a storm surge. The water has come above the dock, a couple of posts have come away from the structure, and we think Chopper is hanging by one line, though we can't tell for sure. We'll need to wait until the water and wind subside a bit before we can safely investigate.

Wow - quite a picture. I do love stormy days, when they don't cause damage of course.

Anne and Greg:Be safe! Don't take any chances, just sit tight until things calm down. Even as sheltered as it is here, the wind is high and the power keeps flipping on and off amid distant rumbles of thunder. A day to be warm inside!!

This photo really captures the mood of the stormy day...and the splash of red in the hull of the boat brings just the right drama to the otherwise grey day.
