The Fisherman and the Salmon - A Fabled Love Story from the Gaspe

This fable is a unique story about forbidden love. If you have ever fallen in love, you will feel the passion that love brings into the life of the young salmon. Innocently she allows herself to go against her nature and follow her heart despite the warnings of her elders.

"The years passed and day after day, he patiently threw his line across the water until there came a time when one fish in particular caught his eye. She was beautiful and her silvery speckled body swam gracefully beneath the sun sparkled waters."

This is a story that will take you on an adventure of passion with an end that will remain in your memory long after you have finished the book. Let your imagination travel to the beautiful destination of a salmon river on the Gaspe Coast of Canada, where you will immerse yourself in a watery tale of love.

This book is available in my Etsy shop  will be sent to you as a PDF file

A Hoop Garden Here at the Inn

My mini hoop garden that I built  myself to start some flower seeds. I added a  grow light to keep it warm on cold days.
Well it is a beautiful day here in the Gaspe. I am so lucky to be working at home, able to take in the freedom of planning my day according to what I want to do. It seems strange because for the last 12 years I was  responsible for running a museum and never seemed to have time to take in the what really matters.... me and what I have always wanted to do.
It has taken an incredible amout of courage to bring myself  to this place of freedom. I have had to leave behind the security of a day job and all that it involves. Things that we take for granted like friends, an amount of money that we can count on each week to pay the bills, focus and challenges that energize our lives. To walk away from this, means being cut off from a life source of people and direction to face an unstable financial future. But that is a price I knew that I would have to pay and it will all be worth it in the future.
At this time I am keeping my head very busy planning my future which for sure includes writing and other creative ventures.  I have planted a garden and will watch it grow alongside my new life.
