A grand show of weather this morning, bright sun, total calm, harbour mill pond like, Ross Island shore reflecting halfway cross the harbour. Lots of water birds gathering prior to going to worship I suspect. Temp to rise from current 9C to 20C mark, definite fall like feel about the place this weekend.

University students preparing to return to the classroom. Village have a number hired their positions will be over next weekend. Time certainly slips by bigtime.

Fishery news remains static, haven't learned of any activity in the herring side of things for the past several days.

Morning, Rob.

I thought we were feeling 'fall-ish' when I got up to find it was only 20C outside this morning. You certainly beat us out at 9C.

It is a beautiful day here, though. Sunshine, blue sky and NO humidity.

Morning,
56 degrees at 5:30AM so I put a row of firewood in the wood shed. Great temp, no wind and sunny has been the rule for a few days now and with those cooler temps a bit more get up and go in my step. I endure heat and humidity and wait for fall weather.

We have seen giant sunfish in the area. I saw one just E of the island. The tuna addicts have seen quite a few ESE of Mt Desert Rock with a couple of reports of them actually breaching like a whale. How such an awkward looking fish that seems as though it can just get out do its way can leap out df the water is a puzzle to me. We have had an abundance of sand lances around the docks lately. the arctic terns have brought their young into the harbor for the feast. I don't remember ever having terns inhabiting my trap float. they put up quite a racket when I tie up to the float and only leave when we are right alongside and tieing up.

I have a spider's web on my boat between my exhaust and cabin side. I leave it there because there is usually a skitter or three caught in it. While hauling the other day my crew pointed out that there was a horsefly Caught in the web. Just as he said that, the spider (about 1/3 the size of the fly) came out of a PVC conduit, bit the fly and went back in his hole. About 30 seconds later the spider returned and lugged the fly back home. Mother Nature never ceases to amaze me.
