Another grand sunrise from behind Ross Island underway, bright red sky,boat making its way out of the harbour, clear, total calm, a cool temp of 9C. Weatherman suggesting southerly influence this afternoon, temp rise to just over freezing mark, showers for tomorrow, temps remaining at best in low single digits on the plus side.

A number of folks travelling yesterday, not as many on the return run as going over. Successful trip by the amount of 'stuff' in the vehicle by the time we cleared St.John. The new highway cuts the driving time by quite a bit, combinded with a reservation for the return trip level of anxiety about getting on non existant, easy to get used to for sure.

Emily has exams this weekend, level of anxiety seems to be on the rise. Consultation with Nan both via txt and voice on the increase, one this evening, which "will be brutal,just so you know", and one tomorrow afternoon. The plan is for her to come home next weekend for a few days then retun to UNB for a final two exams.

Dear Rob:

Thanks for info! I went to the Coastal Transport Grand Manan page and it said the same thing - from Blacks is served on a first come first serve basis, and from G.M. Side you have to pay to get on and can make a reservation in advance.

Could you tell me exactly the name of the site you went on. Thanks. And, p.s. ... are the fees still in place for the trips?

God, I hope so or every boat will be full with people wanting to go over for an hour and then come back. Blarg!

Thanks Rob.

Afternon CHUNKS, a grand one underway, southerly just settling in, warm from this morning, lots of sun, howver can feel the cloud cover and showers not far away.

Reservations since mid-fall, up to three months in advance, both ways. Go to Coastal Site instructions all there, is becoming more popular as time goes by. Yes it takes the unknown factor from travelling to and from without a doubt, managed a few extra care free moments in Canadian Tire because of the reservation. No little voice saying must get on the road to make sure we got home.

Lots of melted butter, and beverage of choice( in moderation of course) the way to enjoy lobster. The ones I enjoyed this season have been great.

Have a good one.

Dear Rob:

Since when can you get reservations for the trip over to Grand Manan - and - how do you go about doing that? That would certainly reduce a lead foot driver for me :)

Exams are certainly a thing of terror for first year students. I see that Dalhousie has finally recognized the fact and have implemented a program wherein students can spend a bit of time in the pet room. It seems they have finally recognized that animals can do a lot to reduce stress. A good idea for sure.

We have a fair day here. Still a bit coolish but not bad considering the date.

Invited out to sample some of the local lobsters for supper tonight. Can't wait. I wouldn't care if it was mac and cheese so long as I had one day off from cooking.

That being said I have extra time to now get a few things done for Christmas so better get too. Have a good one.

Word. Chunks.
