After a wonderful month with my daughter, Elizabeth, I am back at home in Montreal. It was fun to share the cooking and shopping, to go on expeditions together and to sit reading or watching a movie in the evenings.
The fall moon was spectacular and the days full of sights I can never find here. We went whale watching on a perfectly calm sea and we’re privileged to see hump-backed whales, sea lions and harbour seals.
Yes, the grass is very dry and the salmon may not make it upstream. There is a drought on the Island. For the thirty days I was there, it only rained a little once in the night and for an hour or so on a morning when I took the bus into town. This in an area designated a northern rain forest. Time to put on my activist hat and to gird my sword on my thigh. Time to bother my MP again. Time to fight for nature!
