The morning started with a bit of fog, then cleared, now the northerly has a hint of easterly bringing the clouds once again. Patchy fog in the, along with high teens for temp in the forecast. Temp a nice 12C, wind find east then going southerly by this afternoon.

Exam week in commence, a bit of tension in the air to get things underway. Emily has exams all week, Rop exempt for history, a couple of Practical Courses(no exam) with Math and English completes his commitment for this year.

The camp a great experiance, the group appreciated, entered the food hut after playing at the service, recieved an ovation and invited to go to the head of the chow line, with a chant we Love Grand Manan for them. Rob had a grin on when relating the story, he upgraded his $2 drumsticks to an investment of $12 for a new pair, helps out if you have better equipment.

Dear Rob:

Very hot here - I suspect 20 or so. We have a bit of a breeze - thank heavens so I can go outside to garden.

I am very worried about the seine still being in the ocean. There are too many migrating whales, dolphins, birds, etc., startig to come up. I hope they don't just say: Oh well, we tried and leave it there to drift away - killing everything in site. Is it a law that they have to get it up no matter what? I hope so. Pls advise.

We had our relay on Saturday. The girls at our store made $4,950.00 towards the cause. A very great attempt.

Glad Lil Rob had such an awesome experience. These types of things are what add confidence to young men's way of doing things.

Well, this vegies and dip for lunch is not cutting it. Must find something more yummy.

Have a good one. Word. Chunks.

Happy Monday to you Rob. We had the storm from H. last night with 20,000 strikes of lightning and wind. This morning it is calm and beautiful. I am just so thankful we had no hail. My hydrangeas are just starting to bloom and so are my birds of paradise. Sounds like a busy time at your house. Emily and Rob going their own directions for the summer. Emily off to university in the fall...where does the time go.

We are just back from Alaska. We caught about 40 pounds of halibut. Had our first batch Sat night. I have never had any fish that tasted so good. Sure found out catching halibut is hard work. We were on a six pack boat with a darling young captain who was just awesome. Fishing two hours out from Homer, Alaska. Pefect day with such fun people.

If you have a chance go to my blog. I brought flat Bug (Charleston Bug) back from her Alaskan visit. It is fun just to see how she came into being.

Good morning Rob. It's been a while since i dropped by the little Rock.
I hear Morris lost a boat. From what I've heard the fellow at the wheel won't be working at fishing for a while.

have a good day.

Mornin CHUNKS, glad there is a MAN CAVE still in existance that visitors know to appreciate the ambiance of the place and not offer suggestions on how to make it 'nicer' or 'more practical'.

Fog making its way up the harbour, Ross Island Light disappearing behind the shroud, patchy it is not, very thick once it takes hold.

A busy week for sure, exams all week(for Emily), prom next Monday, graduation on Tuesday then a bit of a rest before she starts summer employment at Boys & Girls Club. Rob to start within a few days at M.G. FISHERIES, doing whatever, mainly helping with the rockweed harvest. He had a grand time with the Baptists, mostly young families at the camp, plus the great compliment of heading to the front of the chow line made an impression - all good.

Have a good one.

Morning David, hope the fishing better down your way than what is going on around here. Tony usually holds out and gets the day in, give it up for a bad job on Saturday, no lobsters, discouraged and called it a day in the early afternoon.

One observation is there appears to be a complete year class missing in the catch, this time of year should be many one and half to two pounders coming ashore, not the case. Also more soft lobsters showing up, very early, water temps off shore seem to be where they should be in August rather than June.

MOONRAKER, still down, an attempt to retrieve the seine not successful, managed to retrieve the cork line and that is about it. No word on any attempt to salvage, great amount of tide and deep water.

Have a good one.
