Back on July 2, 2001 I made the first entry in what has become this weblog. Four years ago to the day, we moved to the island. My favourite memory of that day is the four of us, huddled together on our bed in the loft looking out over Mannion Bay and watching the last ferry leave at 10:05pm. We all said together "There goes the last ferry. We're not on it. We live here."

That line goes though my head every time I hear the last ferry sound it's whistle and take off for the continent. It cements my commitment to this place, and I never take it for granted that I live here, not once in four whole years.

Thank you for joining me thus far in this ever emerging story.
