Certainly a KODAK MOMENT as the sun rises from behind ROSS ISLAND this morning, brilliant Red Sky reflecting off a bank of clouds, total calm, the sun reflection across the harbour onto the tide line on this side. Calm, cool 3C, temp to rise low double digits, remain clear till nightfall, easterly and rain into the weekend is the forecast of the moment.

Three weeks from today the traps hit the water, still last minute preparations with some gear, appears...

Looking across the harbour it could be a couple of months from now, daylight slowly taking over, a large bank of clouds to the east of Ross Island, a westerly draft, temp 4C with a promise of clearing and temps to remain in the single digits. A more wintry scenario than fall, rain and easterly influence midweek for several days now in the forecast.

Woodstove now in commence as of late yesterday, didn't require an overnight stick, but was suggested it woul...

Great sunrise, now cloud cover has hidden the sun, temp a modest 11C, temp to rise a few degrees, current westerly changing to northerly and temps to decline by this afternoon, low single digits overnight. Next few days cool and clear with moisture by midweek, however than seems to be changing with each new forecast.

Boats hitting the Grey Zone with a bit more frequency, the lobster catch has improved. The gear conflict is ongoing, with a number of traps ...

Overcast, a slight haze in evidence, a southerly draft, temp a nice 14C might increase a few degrees, wind to be in the 20-25KPH range haven't decided if we will have some moisture or clear. Damp weather in the offing for the next week, a day here and there in the forecast at the moment.

Lots of folks travelling yesterday on the trips I was one, if not full only a few more spaces available. All hands local, and a few semis onboard, the last trip had a dec...

Overcast, rain in the forecast, fair amount, but clearing by this afternoon, wind from SW 30-35KPH with higher gusts. Not a bad weather weekend in the offing clear and mild with more seasonal temps to be expected next week.

My comments of not using the woodstove as yet probably coming to a quick end with high temp in the single digits starting the first of the week, been a good run for sure, woodpile still fully intact.

A quick trip to the main...
