The weatherman has it correct, rain, not showers in commence. Calm, 14C, to rise very little, rain for the weekend. The grounds are in need of a bit of a natural drink, will put the best face on it with that statement.

Emily in the house for the weekend, whatshisname working the weekend, she has a tooth in need of repair. Once chip is replaced off to Quispam for a couple of days, following week job gets in the way. A busy summer for her and Rob. Rob started on Wed. at MG, hasn't stopped. Between rockweed harvest and lobster buying long days, but he is enjoying himself, a little cash makes the world a bit brighter for sure.

Final week of lobster fishing underway, they have to be on the bank by 29th. Catch, of course, seems to be more productive than previous several weeks.

Afternoon David, much the same weather underway here this afternoon, a draft from NE, fog just above the trees across the harbour on Ross Island.Rain did stop early morning, however wouldn't take much to have it open up again, not an unwelcome occurrence at the moment, just a prolonged amount not required.

Puttering around the yard, doing Yes Dear projects, about caught up for the moment.

Just as coming in the house two boats taking advantage of the highwater and landing a few traps on their wharf, a few at time, and by this time next week will be planning for SETTING DAY in November, the cycle keeps on going.

Emily has retired her High School Hoodie, now proudly displaying her UNB attire. Her enthusiasm is a bit uncharacteristic, might be maturity I suppose. Rob having a good time with the lobster boats, and rockweed harvest, working on Sunday also, lots of hours, seems not to mind the commitment, at least so far.

Enjoy the weekend.

Morning,
Last night brought the first real blister of a thunder/lightening storm. Lots of rain and fireworks, some too close for comfort. Overcast with moisture and E flow for the first part of the week.

My neighbor had to take up his fish trap as too many grey seals were using if for a lunch box. This is a new problem for local fishermen. One tub fisherman had the top of a halibut shredded and they have started to rip baitbags out of traps. I have heard of this problem with harbor seals but more to the west of us. Grey seals showed up in small numbers 15 years ago and have multiplied greatly. I have been seeing more flounders in my traps recently as they come ashore to spawn.

Good luck to your bug catchers this week. One week can make a big difference in a year's income. Shedders are now more prevalent then hard shells, thus the need for more poundage to make the same money.
