Afternoon CHUNKS, hard to believe you guys were here that lenght of time and we never crossed paths. I made three trips t different times, but during the day and early evening, sounds as if you didn't return till well after dark. Next time as they say.

You had a grand contrast on weather, but for the most part all good. Now Daryl has a second career to develop, brush up on some of Gerald's stories and he will well known all over North America.

The shark was in the harb0ur where the ferry docks, FLAGGS COVE off of STANLEY'S BEACH, needless to say lots of interest.

Still warm here this evening, inland will be hot, have a good one.

Hi, Ho, Rob and happy Sunday.

I see you're still having issues with the feathered poop machines on the lawn. Ever consider a couple of those motion activated sprinklers?

Dad set up a couple of those for the deer when he had his lake house. They considered his landscaping their local all you can eat buffet. They worked fairly well but he did have to move them around every now and then.

They made me jump about 10 feet straight up one night, when I went out to my truck for something. I'd totally forgotten that he'd turn them on around dusk and I walked right into their path. Got a little free cardiovascular workout right there!

Morning,
Great stretch of clear weather certainly makes life on the water all that more enjoyable. It seems we have a couple of more days of that good weather before some organized rain Wed-Thursday and then hopefully back to clear. Hints of fall this morning at 58 degrees as I rolled out of bed. Never been one to get much done when high temps combine with high humidity. I have finally figured out to survive that combo I go fishing and then home and not much else gets done.

Neighbor has had a decent summer thus far with his fish trap. Still getting a variety of species but has figured out that to maintain a certain level of catches he must move the trap around. The grey seals find it and then use it as a private dining room which brings catching anything to a halt.

Price for lobsters remains higher than last year with catch off considerably. That's OK as long as price stays up. Areas west of us have dropped off even more than we have. That seems to lend some credence to the idea of lobsters moving to the east to escape warmer waters to the west.

Dear Rob:
Greetings! Homeward bound if the boat is getting going. HaHa Daryl says I ginx the trip when I am here because I don't want to leave. She was down the last time I was here in April as well.

Art gallery opening last night was sold out and it was an excellent show. Hope you get to go. I have commissioned Victoria Hall from White Head to do me a painting and I am so excited. The glorious sea squall after the show made for a tremendous sunset afterward and I have the pictures to prove it.

I can't believe we have been here for 10 days. It seems like we just got here. Same thing, every year.

Much to do before the 3:30 boat and we have to be on time for our reservations so have to get to it.

Have a wonderful day.

Word. Chunks.
