Clear, a cool -6C, calm for the first time in a number of days, remaining clear with temp to rise into middle single digits, still similar for next little while.

Grandson, Rob a big SEVENTEEN, today, not a longtime, however can't seem to recall when he wasn't underfoot. His career with the lobster fishery closed for daytime hours, time to get caught up in his school work. His report the catch better than First Day, however still didn't sound to great this early in the season.

A trip for Dr.'s appointment in St. John for Donna's dad, a long day for one 91yrs. He enjoys the going, however by end of the day he is wiped. Donna travelling, a bit of last minute Xmas things on the list, there will be a couple more of these trips as the day gets closer. Emily making noises about getting her some of her posse here for a visit in the near future.

Dear Rob:

We are having pretty much zero wind here. A good day to get a new plastic on the greenhouse for the winter. This will be attempted by myself with no help so probably a good job no one around to hear me :)

Cody made it home on Friday night to leave me some laundry - almost none compared to what the daughter brings home. He likes his new digs, but I did think he was a bit homesick, although he would NEVER admit it. So far, so good.

Had a report from someone else on the island that the catch was VERY disappointing. You know who I mean. I hope, like you, that tides are the blame and things will pick up, or it could be a very bad winter for some.

Glad you made it out alive from the setting day thing. It would indeed be very difficult to do that hard work when you are not used to it. L'il Rob will be worn out by the time he gets school work and work, work all done for the day. But what the heck, they are young and can take it.

Well, I think the small sea bird you saw may have been a kittiwake. I think they stay out to sea all the time unless nesting. You were lucky to see them, they are quite elusive, and the gannet as well. Awesome siting for the two times you were allowed to look up.:)

Have a great day. If you don't hear from me, I am incased in plastic, only to be found when spring hits. Bahaha

Word. Chunks.

Mornin CHUNKS, have got the Lobster Fishing itch scratched in fine style. The body managed to forgive me, pretty well, by yesterday to enable me to do some of my GRISWOLD thing around the grounds. The majority of the 'decorations' hope to be in place next weekend.

The couple of days on the water, busy didn't have a great chance to take things in. The weather cool, windy, and slatty, just keeping upright a challenge for most of Saturday. However did see one gannet drop out of the sky, and a number of birds that resembled minature sea gulls. Don't know the name, not a common sight for sure, I have seen them on occasion but always offshore aways, not around land. They were feeding and concentrated as a bunch in one location.

Preliinary indications about the catch not good, Rob did mention more brought in yesterday, but still far below what one has come to expect at the first of the season. Hopefully as the tides drop back things will pick up, at least the boats will have some good weather to give it a shot.

Cody still enjoying his bachelor lifestyle in downtown Sussex, I suspect.

Have a good one.

ROB
