Another foggy start to the day, a slight draft from SW keeping the clearing skies at bay. A cool 7C, expect to top off in the teens as the day moves along, clearing with rain overnight.

A grand surprise yesterday, folks from "Upper Canada", faithful readers of the blog stopped by enroute home for a hello. Brian and Ruth attending a Royal Canadian Navy Reunion in Cornwallis, N.S. They had stopped by a couple of years ago making the same trip, wonderful to see them again. A couple of jars of ICE WINE from thier part of the world a great addition to my limited wine cellar.

Emily a bit easiar to live with this morning, off to Quispam on late boat to insure Whatshisname is still in the area.

Dear Rob:

I sense a peaceful weekend coming your way with no pouting. That seems to work the same here for me. :)

We had such heavy fog this morning you couldn't see a thing - all the way up river to Hampton? One of the girls came in to work from Sussex and said it was broiling hot up there - 30 km away? Oh well, I would rather have some coolness. As we speak, it is becoming sunny in our part of the world. Yard work calls.

I see David has his first exciting cardinals. We have had two nesting pair for the past three years - which were also firsts for us. When the male brings the fledged babies to the feeder - that is the funniest time of all. The babies get on a branch and shake their wings and scream their bloody heads off. Dad is kept busy going back and forth from the feeder, getting a seed, cracking it open, and feeding whoever screams the most it seems. Mama cardinal does no feeding when they are fledged. Justice at last :) You will have fun watching them too David.

Well, it looks like tomorrow is rain, but Sunday is looking up. At least one good day.

Everyone have a good weekend.

Word. Chunks.

Southerly breeze and full of gray moisture. Yesterday the Bay of Fundy fog machine was on with an E push.

Reports from trawl surveys E of Mt Desert Rock show lots of alewives and whiting in the area. Alewives, also called river herring, are great lobster bait but only avaliable when coming upriver to spawn in the spring. For whatever reason when we get them for bait we catch bigger lobsters. The fishery is tightly regulated and the fishery appears healthy.

Sighted our first cardinal ever here at the house. They are common on the island but not down here in the woods. I guess enough trees have blown down to make our feeder a bit more enticing. Purple finches just showed up.
