mankas/martha stewart living

Two more from Mankas in Inverness today because I am so in love with that place. I dream of writing part of the new book there when I get to that point. Can you think of a better place to write than at this table? More of Mankas in the February  Martha Stewart Living.
PS - does anyone know exactly what type of net this is? Just curious. It is fascinating and beautiful, isn't it?


  1. Dear Leslie,

    The net is a seine. For two people, each takes a pole vertically and wades through the water using the net like a fence. On the top of the net are floats and on the bottom are weights. I grew up with my father taking my sisters and me seining in creeks and rivers for crawdads and surveying all the variety of little minnows and darters. They are very fun to fish with.

    Thank you for your beautiful work.


    1. Thanks for the info, Jack, and for sharing such a beautiful memory.

  2. Oh, is that a net? I thought it was a Rodarte dress.

  3. This looks like the loveliest work / reading / brunching spot! The net is fascinating and sculptural.
