Fog to start the day beginning to burn off, a slight southerly draft, temp 13C, expected to hit low 20's as the fog dissipates as the morning moves along.

Intense yardwork the order of the day yesterday, most of the window boxes completed, hanging baskets, the lawn now resembles a lawn rather than a hayfield. Some follow-up for today, the grass will have to be picked up, hope to get at some of the bare spots with sod, and seeding in the smaller locations.

Haven't had an update on the fishery news, has been some activity with weir building on back of the island, nothing on the front of the island. Not many weirs being built, expensive and very little return past few years.

Hi, Rob.

Happy Sunday.

It sounds like your yard work is moving apace.

Being further south, my hanging baskets and flower beds have been done for a good 6 weeks now. Hubby's responsibilities (mowing and trimming) have begun.

Temps have been back to the low-mid 80's but the humidity is rising.

All yard work now must be done in the early morning or early evening.

No fog, cool southerly breeze may be sign of moisture predicted for tonight/tomorrow.

I talked to a couple of lobstermen friends yesterday, (1 in Eastern PEI, 1 close to NB/NS border. Same story we in Maine had last year-not enough processing or demand for processed lobster, live market slow and price at least $1 below what we need to cut ahead. Quota imposed on daily catch with more lobsters then they could imagine in some places, but not everywhere. I feel sorry for those guys with lowvolume and low price.

I just requested some info on growing kelp in an aquaculture setting.

Off to help clean up a small island/sandbar located between Islesford and Baker's Island. We leave as soon as the tide goes far enough for us to get there without swimming. Pile the junk all up and then go get it on a good calm high tide.
