Clear, calm, temp -2C to rise low double digits for a few minutes by this afternoon. Similar conditions for tomorrow, moisture and cooler temps first of the week.

Yesterday finally got the traps in the water, three trips at supper table shortly after dark. Weather clear, by afternoon a bit sloppy with surprisingly small draft of wind. will have a peek at them this morning at daylight. A few hauled by other boats, reports they looked good, bigger boats will be hauling overnight. Never know the opening price, however said to be at minimum $4/lb if anymore will wait and see, and how long it holds at that price remains to be determined. At least report one breakdown, but not aware of any incidents involving fishermen.

Dear Rob:

Glad to hear you made it out alive! :) Also glad that everyone waited until it was fit weather. This morning, if any indication of your weather, would be ideal. The river is on flat calm, which even here is basically unheard of here.

Thankfully, the lobster price seems to be a bit better than last years opening price as well. In town yesterday, saw two trucks set up selling their wares - I was so tempted to stop and buy some. Yum! I am going to hold out for Grand Manan lobsters instead.

Sarah reporting in from Laos! It appears that she ended up - somehow - in the outdoor arena for the Championship Thai Boxing Match. She was the only lady and only white person amongst hundreds of Laos men and monks. They all 'scooched over'? to quote her, and gave her the best seat in the house to watch. Very respectful. I suspect that they felt it was beyond odd that a woman would attend such an event. THAT KID!!

Back from pretzel class so either I keep moving or keel over. It was murderous today. The body is feeling the pain. Arg.

Have a great day. Word. Chunks.
