Welcome to Tancook Island NS. Canada a place of great but sad changes. We first went there in 2004, it was a piece of an earlier time, the pace was slow, like the ocean that surrounded it, but would pick up like the storms that would hit the island in fall and winter.

Now it is a different place, the people that made the Tancook Schooner famouse and Tancook Sauerkraut as famous are dyeing off, and the "Summer People" are taking over. They are slowly outnumbering the original settlers of this beautiful Island. People who could survive 5 generations of North Atlantic winters only to pop back up in spring and work harder that ever. To these people the originals I dedicate the next several images. Not the loudmouthed "visitors" that think because they come there for a summer the state will keep the ferry running . . . never mind, just look. at what once was.
