On Remembrance Day, I was lucky enough to take a little family outing to the birthplace of quite a long line of my relatives, including my mom. Seven (six humans, one canine) of us met at dad’s boat in Newtown, and motored over to the island, just a few minutes away.
There was a little bit of work to do- fixing up the wharf, and winterizing the cabin, but we mostly played. Walking along the old paths, beaches, and rocks, we found ropes for our Norton’s Cove Knots project, bits of driftwood, and even a dog toy for Jack! And a mug up at the cabin, of course. A beautiful morning with some of my favourite people.
