Summer has returned with bright sun, a cool 16C, temp to rise into mid 20's, no breeeze to speak of in the forecast. Similar conditions to remain for the weekend, with higher temps forecast for next week.

Emily last day of employment for this summer, Rob still has tomorrow. Next week lining up to be busy with preparations for high school and university.

Fishing news remains quiet, no herring, dolphins not common now common. Right Whales still not in the area, no food for them. Other species of whales have picked up the slack it seems.

Dear Rob:

It was hotter in Saint John today than it was in Hampton??? Go figure.

Travelling to Fredericton tomorrow a.m. Daughter caught a drive home tonight: got prettied up, ate supper, left me three loads of laundry, took my car and is history for the evening. She has to work tomorrow at 11:00 so early start for us. Blarg!

On the good news daughter secured a job at the University in some department or other starting September 3rd. THANK GOD. Cody has cast off and was called back to work two days later so for the moment all seems to be good. (you know something is going to happen right) :)

Well, that is it. Off to do laundry. I love Friday nights. NOT.

Mornin David, fog moved out, a bit fall like to start the day, however will be warm and humid for the afternoon. A grand time to be on the water, unless you are trying to make a living from the effort, other than tourism for sure.

The landings in the Strait have been consistant, however one processor telling he has thrown over 20% of the critters on the compost pile. A combination of heat, and poor handling by the boats. Price not good, but has been consistant. The 'grey zone' continues to produce and hear on occasion a conflict of gear can be a problem, some U.S. and Canadian lots of gear, limited bottom of fish.

Next weekend move Emily, once we get a feeling that is going to take hope to take a couple of days and head down your way for a change of pace. Some indication that Cross Border Shopping might be involved. We travel with Tony and his other half so we usually hang around a wharf somewhere for a few hours, ecpecially if the weather remains anywhere close to what we have had this summer.

Have a good one.
