What's It All About, eh?

Cape Breton evokes deep memories and strong emotions for me as well as a deep appreciation for the beauty of my adopted island. My hopes are that you too might find the photos evocative - maybe a view you've not enjoyed before, or an 'Oh I've been there', or if from away that you may be encouraged to visit this fair isle so that you might come to love and breathe Cape Breton as I do. One word about place names that I use - some are completely local usage while others are from maps of Cape Breton that I've purchased over the years. I frequently post travel and other photos that are of interest to me - and hopefully you.

On the right hand side bar find my take on Single Malt whiskey - from how to best enjoy this noble drink to reviews (in a most non-professional manner) of ones that I have tried and liked - or not. Also musings, mine and others, on life in general.

Photographs are roughly 98%+ my own and copy-righted. For the occasional photo that is borrowed, credit is given where possible - recently I have started posting unusual net photographs that seem unique. Feel free to borrow any of my photos for non-commercial use, otherwise contact me. Starting late in 2013 I have tried to be consistent in identifying my photographs using ©smck on all out of camera photos I personally captured - (I often do minor computer changes such as 'crop' or 'shadow' etc but usually nothing major), and using
©norvellhimself on all photos that I have played around with in case it might not be obvious. Lately I have dropped the ©smck and have watermarked them with the blog name.

Slug Patrol

no photographs with this post (yet) but for this little off-beat post I am just commenting on doing the 'Slug Patrol' - i.e. this is the time of year that slugs - "common name for any apparently shell-less terrestrial gastropod mollusc" - a common night crawler, are becoming prolific and one can scarcely walk onto the porch at night without squashing one or more.  So with a square of paste-board and an ash shovel from the winter I did a quick patrol of the porch support walls and collected perhaps 30 odd slugs or so ranging in size from less than an inch long to one great seven inch long by a girth of perhaps close to three inches - imagine stepping on that in the dark in one's bare feet, uggg - which I then trans-located several hundreds of feet deep into the wood - we should be porch free of slugs for a while.
