A muggy, overcast, day in commence, temp 17C, wind southerly 30-35KPH, rain and showers on the way till this evening, wind to remain with clearing over next day or so.

Surprising number of travellers yesterday, a number of 'strangers from away' in the mix. The 1:30PM trip left vehicles, something very uncommon, bulk of traffic at 5:30 is the norm.

Brief word from UNB, must assume things are good with her.

Dear Rob:

I believe you on the full boat thing! We were two of the unfortunates who got left on the wharf when we went over last Monday - 1:30 boat. We were there in time there just wasn't any room.

Is the Adventure back on her run? The crew was sceptical that it would be by Friday - last.

The wind is unbelieveable here. We are definitely in Gale Force - I would say 35 Knot would wrap it up. Strong enough this morning to knock over our huge compost bin, which was full to the top. Result is I have to go out and re-rack everything, put back in the bin, bungie this time (Cody), and have ready for tomorrow pick up. Nothing like doing the job twice. The colored chairs, like yours, have taken a tumble down the lawn as well. This is definitely a good one, the storm I mean:)

Emily's 'time available or permitting' will become less and less as she gathers more friends to her side. There is always something more and more to do. I tell you Rob, when she comes home for Thanksgiving you are going to notice one BIG difference. I think you may be a bit shocked, but don't be, that cocky lst year university kid attitude, disappears around the middle of second term and then they are just our kids again.

Well, it is off to the compost heap for me - blarg. Hold on to your hat (or nor'easter) and drive safe.

Word. Chunks,

p.s. What kinds of uncommon critters are you seeing?

HI,
This weather seems to be a 24 hour affair as about this time yesterday the sun went behind the clouds and now is just reappearing. Less wind and rain then anticipated. With forecast of 30mph I would have left the outboard on the mooring but with forecasts of gusts to 50 mph I decided cheaper to haul her out then replace her.

Our experience with young ladies and higher education is that no news is indeed good news.

Heard on news this morning that the average water temp on the E coast of US from So Carolina to ME is the highest since 1951. A while ago I also heard that the water temp in SW Nova is 4 degrees higher this year then last year which seems extreme.

Mornin CHUNKS, radar looking as if the rain will soon be concentrated your way, wind changing to west, should clear here before too long.

Yes 'seems' Emily adjust very well to life in Residence, much more than I would have anticipated. Enjoys here classes, assures she is working hard, and a new bunch of acquaintances to learn about. My side of the house well representend in and around Fredericton and she visiting them 'time permitting' of course.

Travel on the boat is high, many folks from 'away', like me much grey hair in the group, coming for a visit. The tourist season being extended as a result of the interest by this group.

Attempt to stay dry.

Mornin David, your Emily will be having a grand experience in NFLD this time of year. The Moose Hunt a big event for sure, however am certain the guys will afford her a bit of time to allow her study to be successful.

A bit more activity gearing up for the November Opening Day more obvious. Some negotiations underway with the Feds to have the season open a week early, haven't heard of any actual meetings or outcome if they have taken place.

Lots of southerly, rain and wind headed this way, appears it is moving fast, at this hour should be past your grounds, but certainly not a day to be on the water.

Indications are the guys fishing the Grey Zone are doing alright, quality of the critter is good, price alright. Water temp still remains higher than it should be for this time of year, the Right Whale still not in numbers, other creatures not common remain in the area.

Have a good one.
