Calm, overcast, 3C temp, temp to rise slightly, light rain the order of the day. Clearing for tomorrow, with light rain expected on Saturday.

Another good day for boats scalloping, seem to be concentrated in Duck Island Sound. Counted thirty-one boats in a fairly small box yesterday at noon. In years past most boats abandoned the area as scallops were scarce after first day of the season.

Lobster fishery ongoing, but at a reduced level, a combination of weather, and critters not crawling as water temp declines.

Dear Rob:

It has to be fait! I never get, or have a chance to read anyone else's telegraph journal, however today, for unexplained reasons, I picked it up at work. There was the good news about the Seven Days Work being donated for all future generations to enjoy and it will never be developed. AWESOME!

Personally, I hike those trails continuously whilst on Grand Manan. I love the Eel Brook under the Works and have a grand time there hunting for geods and other types of rock. Then there is the ever popular sitting on the cliff edge waiting to spot - and photograph the peregrine falcons. I have almost always got to see them zooming by at 100 mph, however, getting the perfect picture eludes me at those speeds. I do get to wave to the incoming ferry, half a mile away :), and take some grand shots of the seals far below whose bodies can be perfectly seen in the crystal clear water. There is always the odd gannet diving for fish at the Eel Brook, which is something to be seen in itself, not to mention the god-zillion herring jumping out of the water at times, and the seagulls scooping them up without even landing. So tell me - is that not worth saving for someone else to see when I have croaked. Yes, yes it is. Happy news for today.

Have a great one and enjoy that Eel Brook trail if you have time some day. An awesome adventure to be sure.

Word. Chunks.
