< . I Took The Afternoon off and decided to do something I had Wanted to Do for Years Find my Great Grandfather's old Homestead...2000 Acres...he named it Argyle... Nova Scotia....Granted To Him by the King..in 1776.......I had Been Reading About It Since I was Young.... In Some Old Books.. Left To me By My Grandfather....but now I have found Time............ I was very lucky...some local fishermen who pointed us in the right direction...told me that MacKinnon's Neck Had Just been purchased by some Americans.....The Gate was open I knew It would be my one and only chance to see it.....and as we arrived the Fog had been cued to come rolling in ...It was exactly as it looked in the descriptions I had read .... I was taken Back.....

. . . . . . This is a Unique Sense Of Time And Place .....The stone cellar wall you see above is the same cellar wall described by Rev. Campbell in 1876.....I have another description of the property from I believe 1840 that describes the fruit trees and other details...lost in my papers..... The Point being this Spiritual Connection to Time And Place....This Land At MacKinnon Neck is Spiritually important to only a very few....I knew this land had been for sale... for at least eight or ten years that I know of.... but of course the Million dollar price Tag .....would have left me a bit short.....so not much can be done to preserve this unique setting...................
