luv those messy shelves, you are a woman after my own heart!

Love this.

Those are action pants that say ready to go

Why are we wearing survival suits? Early morning zodiac departure from West Advocate, Nova Scotia, for the remote Isle Haute in the Bay of Fundy! Normally we go on family camping trips here and travel by lobster boat. But this time we are part of a Land & Sea documentary for CBC Television about the island. I'm here as the 'art' component as the island appears in my novels Heave and The Memento...and probably the book I'm working on now 😉 My brother 'Dan the historian' is here too, and MP Bill Casey. Our family has been enchanted by this island for generations. Wynken is the new generation. We camped here when I was 7 months pregnant. He's 11 now. I've never been in a zodiac before, eek! Off we go with hopes the mists will burn off! ... See MoreSee Less
