  3. Wonderful weather for the time of year and a great catch! Henry is getting so tall,,, we remember the fish we ate and fantastic crabs,, many years ago, out fishing with Barry! Great memories!

  4. Just watched you,your adorable son & The gorgeous Fair Isle on Ben Fogle. What a life! I too moved from Canada to Scotland but live in Glasgow. I could only dream of living a life there and commend you for the bravery. Hope to get out there one day with my son to see all it's beauty. 😀

  5. I really enjoyed the programme. You are very talented and creative. I especially liked the hats, paintings and photos. Your son is very lucky to be able to experience this way of life, he is a credit to you. I also wish that there was more community spirit. I hope 2016 is a happy healthy year for you both. I am hoping to catch up on my arts and crafts. I couldn't cope with the cold but the scenery and wildlife are breath taking. Thank you for sharing your life with the tv people. Definitely an amazing insight into island life. Best wishes for the future.

  6. Community spirit should be like this island, very inspirational,
