Sable Island Diary

Thumbnail image for IMG_0284.JPG
Sable Island is one of those places many people dream of visiting, though few ever will.
A 42 kilometre strip of sand in the Atlantic, it's the most remote part of Nova Scotia.
There is only one full-time resident, along with a changing cast of researchers and other workers. It's home to dozens of grey seals, hundreds of shipwrecks...and an iconic population of wild horses.
It's also Canada's newest national park reserve. And earlier this month CBC Halifax broadcast the first ever live radio program from there.
This week we hear the CBC's Eileen McInnis' audio diary from that trip.
