Camping Ship Harbour with Maggy

Sometimes when the big picture feels tough, it's nice to focus on the small ones. Dear friends. Beauty. What matters. Started at Kim Thompson's house on Weeks Lake, then Second Falls, Charlotte Lake. We camped on a sweet little pebbled beach near Second Falls. Felt like we were camped on the lake.

Kim built the first straw bale house in North America. It's beautiful. Has that Spanish warm plaster feel that she brought from her time in Spain. She also began an inspiring Earth skills, sustainable building and living, arts centre called the Deanery Project. See link below. I've decided to dedicate all of my charity giving (1% of my income) to everything like this that gives us a glimpse of what is possible. Focus on local.

Medway Lakes Wilderness Area

There is a stunning wilderness area just an hour north of Bridgewater. One of the prettiest campsites in the Province. One of the starriest nights I've ever seen in Nova Scotia. Great trip with Maggy and earlier in the year with Oliver and Maggy.

Gorgeous time at Keji with Mox. Nothing compares to a full moon paddle.

Eastern Shore Islands Trip

Gorgeous kayaking trip with Oliver exploring the Eastern Shore Islands. Part of the protected areas. Great news this summer that Nova Scotia has dedicated 13% to wilderness protection. That places NS second behind BC. Here it is much more challenging where over 75% of land is privately owned. In BC, it is only about 15%.
