March going out like a lamb, a slight draft from NW, a cool -3C, temp headed to mid single digits, forecast to remain such for the next few days with a gradual improvement in the temp.

Emily made it off the island late yesterday afternoon. The GRAND MANAN ADVENTURE replaced by the GRAND MANAN V,some problems with the ADVENTURE that have been known for awhile was not fixed with the solution attempted. The shaft entering the hull is leaking, seal not adequate, no word on how long she will be out of service. The V had a problem off loading on her first trip, apparently hydraulics on the bow visor failed, took a few minutes to repair. Emily made it to Qispam before dark, and enroute to the big smoke almost upon arrival.

Rob spent hours at the rink, another all day effort today and tomorrow. Tomorrow night ice making is turned off, has been more than a successful run for those involved and another dimenision to the fabric of the community.

Dear Rob:

Does the Adventure have to go away to be repaired, or can then attempt it there? She really has had some problems, however, as all have said, she is just great to travel on when the weather is rough - and that counts. I am not sure how this will affect summer tourists. I would be afraid to go on, if I had never been there before, if I knew there was so much trouble with the ferry and I might not be able to get off. Hopefully, all will be up to snuff by that time.

Drive to Fredericton uneventful. There was hail and some snow up in the mountain pass, but no biggy. It was like a cake walk compared to what I usually have to deal with.

Took daughter out for supper after she was done her work, and yes I paid. It was really nice to not have to make supper though. The food was supurb! We ate at Luna on York Street. If you are ever up there give it a whirl. It is small but man is it delicious.

Today we have bright sunshine so going out to do a few things. Have a great day.

Word. Chunks.
