Not much for the long weekend weather wise, thick fog, calm, to change to NE and wind later on today. Temp a nice 12C, but damp does not to the descriptive justice, more like wet, still minor to what other folks have to endure.
Travel to the island now an adventure with only the Black Boat hauling the load. Got in the parking lot in Blacks at 2:30PM, got on the boat at 11PM, drove in the yard at 1AM. The little boat making five trips, in reality running around the clock moving people and freight. Nary a word of complaint did I hear, even the children seemed to be taking things in stride.
The GRAND MANAN V still in Blacks awaiting a spot to haul her out for repairs, she will be off the run for an extended period. Nobody injured when she hit the wharf and grounded out, evacuation orderly lots of hands helping those that required it. Am sure more stories to be told, crew of the ferry professional, and knew what was required of them. One figure have heard approx. 30K trips, first incident of this nature, this due to mechanical failure not human error.
Emily visiting in Quispam, Rob around the neighbourhood somewhere. Lots of yardwork awaits, but weather keeping it from being any use to go there.
