Thom Drew goes for a walk early in the morning on the island where he and his wife Anne continue to live remotely.
It's quaint on a warm summer morning, but the winters are long and quiet. Theyâve filled their shelves with books and records and preserves that help them get through. The Drews learned to adapt, in a place where a trip to the grocery store in December means an open ride across the sea, dealing with salt spray that stings your face and freezes on contact. âI was always frozen in the boat in winter,â said Ms. Drew, who now wears a survival suit for that crossing.
