Sun making an attempt to show, however southerly breeze bringing cloud cover and showers. The southerly winning, a mild 13C, wind to remain southerly influence, moisture, with high wind near 50KPH, fall is here.

The rain, and wind have the leaves flying about, the ivy on the house near naked this morning,was bright red with abundant leaves on Friday, not now.

Emily dined at YoHo yesterday, a small report saying enjoyed the vist, and was studying for a test sometime today.

Fishing news quiet, bait showing up is from the Gulf of Maine, a first for this community. In the past have had local boats able to provide, no local seiner after she went down this past summer. The use of salt bait nowhere near the level of just a few years ago.

Afternoon CHUNKS, you guys certainly picked a good weekend to visit the Bermuda of Maritimes. The rain was something else for sure.

You mention the erosion on the Beach, come back this weekend and it will have repaired itself back to the formation you are used to. It is conditions like this past weekend that can expose the Beach Glass for sure, would be interesting to know how many tons of the stuff has been carted away from there.

The ADVENTURE a good sea boat, coming home last Wed. quite a bit of slop going, she didn't move, however when she hit one a hell of a bang and a bit of shudder let you know something going on outside.

If you haven't got the wash off the line by the time this mess hits your area forget it till tomorrow. Coming down once again near as well as Saturday, but no wind at the moment.

Stay dry.

Afternoon David, yes indeed the herring are apparently from your part of the world, quite pricey by the time they get in the tanks at the local sheds. Believe in the ranges of $520/ton. Cuttings from CONNORS $340/ton, cuttings are what is left of the fish once it goes through the sardine processing line. A few years ago the cuttings were ground for fertilizer, now more return to use as bait.

NFLD on by Bucket List also, anyone that has made the trip have been impressed with the country and the people, all first rate.

Been lots of easterly this past few days, getting ready for the second Tuesday of November, our Setting Day, has been great this past few years certainly due for a more traditional Day, i.e. cold, sloppy seas and all that goes with it.

Enjoy the few ohours in America, radar shows this mess above you and will be with us for a little prior to moving on.

Dear Rob:

We had one BRIEF show of sun this morning and that was it. The wind is picking up - because I hung out my wash - and I am sure I will be bringing it back in in less than half hour. Black clouds are amassing.

I made the trip to G.M. on Friday. Somehow they squeezed me on the 1:30 ferry. Second to last on. Thank God! We were able to get one good hike in to Hole in the Wall and get a few photos. Stayed out till 7:30 and was told the next two days would be nasty, and indeed they were.

This worked out okay for husband as he got to while away the afternoon playing crib at the shed. I helped Jeanne with a few pre-Thanksgiving chores. We went to Stanley on the way back to our abode and let me tell you the combination of a very high tide, pouring rain and wind did a number on the beach. It was completely split in two by a huge, uncrossable river of water. The sides were falling in at an alarming rate. I got a pic of hubby beside one of said walls and it was near to his waist.

Due to that fact a lot of old, old, glass was unearthed and I got some good examples for my collection of beach glass. In however many zillion years I have been going to G.M. I have never seen Stanley so devastated. A good example of how quickly errosion can do a number on the cliffs, etc. I fear for some of the people who have homes cliff side

Trip home on the ferry was somewhat of an 'ADVENTURE'. It was blowing so bad you could feel the boat shutter every once in a while. Driving home from Blacks even worse. Torrential rain led to driving at 60 or less on the highway in some places. Not pleasing to hubby.

Anyway - had a great time dispite all that. Always an awesome adventure to come to G.M.

Word. Chunks,

Morning,
Reports from those out fishing of a not so pleasant day. Yesterday in the heavy rain was wet but not so bad compared to today.

My guess your bait coming from within 20 miles of here. Lots of lights on the southern horizon for the past 2-3 weeks indicate seiners and with seiners is considerable lobster gear loss. No place to hide as herring have tails and seiners have to go where the herring are, which impacts a symbiotic relationship.

Off to America to pick up a new clothes dryer and grub up. Emily now at Norris Point, NL at doorstep of Gros Morne Natl Park for a conference. Photos I find online of that area are simply beautiful. NL has been on my bucket list for years. Perhaps Emily is our scout team.
