Our New Island Home!

New House 0

Well folks, subject to a few contingencies, it looks very much like we are going to be trading our home on the world’s fifth largest island (Baffin Island), for a much smaller one off the Fundy Bay coast of Nova Scotia.

Long Island is a short ferry ride from mainland Nova Scotia, the closest point being a little peninsula known as ‘Digby Neck’, shown at the top, right of the photograph above. To the southwest is Briar Island, which can be partially seen to the south-west.

Anyway, if everything pans out inspection-wise, Darlene will be heading down with our cats early next month but I will be staying on here in the North for a quite a little while. We still have our current house to sell (it took 8 months to sell our last one) and I have work booked at least as far as December… 

New House 1

Here is our house and barn… It sits on 8.5 acres, mostly cleared, and the barn is really terrific. Unfortunately, we are a kilometer or two from the shore and don’t have an ocean view, but the place is nicely secluded and should have great sea-air.

Darlene will be tackling some stuff that needs done for the first month or two and I hope to follow down for a visit soon thereafter. She will still need to travel back North occasionally in connection with her work and, once I do finally make the final move, I expect to be coming back to do ‘fly-in’ court-circuit work every couple of months or so. All that is still pretty much ‘up in the air’, of course, but I will keep you posted as things develop…
