Send an email to HarbourEdge with just a click.

Dear << First Name >> << Last Name >>,

I hope you are staying safe and healthy during the ongoing COVID health crisis. I realize that for many of you it has disrupted your normal lives and routines.

However, I am hoping that you are still concerned about the issue of a possible subdivision and sale of the common land including the green building and will take the following action to let the CEO of HarbourEdge, Larry Dunn, know that you oppose any such action.

To make it as easy as possible for you to communicate directly to him, I’ve built an online form that will send him a pre-written email with a click of a button.

Please go to this link to Sign and Send The Letter

You are invited to add your own comments as well.

Thank you for your concern and action on this important matter to all owners of property at Abbecombec Ocean Village.

NOTE: Please enter just one owner’s first and last name and your lot number. The verification script will search for an exact match in the database which is taken from the Land Registry data I compiled. If one name doesn’t go through, please try your partner’s if you have your deed in more than one name. If you still have a problem please email me at and I’ll check the data for you. This verification is necessary, to be sure that only actual owners submit the form and also to prevent multiple submissions.

A Simple Request

Buildings on the pond

In order to make it as easy as possible for lot owners at Abbecombec to indicate their opposition to any potential abrogation by HarbourEdge of our license agreement regarding the common lands, such as subdividing and selling a portion to anyone, I’ve posted a form below for you to fill in and submit.

The most urgent and current important issue is the potential subdivision and sale of the portion containing the green building. This simply cannot be allowed.

An urgent message to all Abbecombec Lot Owners

Emailed March 17, 2020

My fellow Abbecombec lot owners, it is with deep concern and urgency that I reach out to all of you today.

It was announced some time ago, via the Facebook Group, that HarbourEdge is considering subdividing off a portion of our common lands, specifically a parcel containing the green building, aka the Rec building (the building is specifically mentioned in our License Agreement as part of the common lands.) They allegedly plan on conveying ownership to Mr. Ralph Bayers, together with the nearby parcel which contains the brown building. (HarbourEdge owns this lot, PID 40580094, separately. It is not common land.)

You have the right to an attorney.

The Lily Pond

“You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand the rights I have just read to you? With these rights in mind, do you wish to speak to me?”

To all law firms practicing in Halifax Regional Municipality:

It appears that we, the residents and owners of Abbecombec Ocean Village, are in imminent threat of losing a significant piece of our common lands in the center of the wetlands at Clam Bay.

Abbecombec 2019 – The Book

I take lot of photos every year. This year I was determined to somehow select some of my favorite shots and compile them into a book again as in the past. The first year I did this, I ended up with 3 books. In the intervening years, I always got overwhelmed at the prospect of trying to go through 10,000s of photos and try to whittle it down to a few 100 to then select from for a book. Then begins the long, tedious, but infinitely creative process of laying out the book page by page. I have a large backlog of work to do one of these days.

The good news is that this year I did it!

An Artist’s Vision

I can’t really paint, but I do have an artist’s eye. I take photographs with my artistic vision and sense of composition rather than to record events or people or document a moment.

Not too long ago I discovered a new digital application that vastly expands the choices for manipulation of images in all manner of ways to create new art. Like many people I am drawn to the Impressionists, their technique and vision and goals in creating art the way they did speak to me, and I’m sure many people. So here are some of my photographs turned into Faux Paintings which might hang in a gallery called Musée de Impressionnistes Numérique
