This is how a heart breaks

When I was a little girl, people lived in this house. Kids played here. Puppies were born here. Stories were told into the evening.

When I was a girl, the road went to this house. You could walk there. There was a wharf, too, in the deep cove in front. There was often a sailboat.


The road has caved in. You can’t walk there easily anymore. There is a massive hole in the roof and the front is falling off. It would be unsafe to venture in. Miraculously, it hasn’t fallen yet, but now it’s just a matter of time.

Things sure have changed here in 35 years.

    Sad, but inescapable. No matter what Exploits WAS, what it is NOW is a summer vacation retreat and only the sites with regular vacationers will survive.
