It may hit 60 later this week

I hear that on the mainland people are complaining of the heat. Send some this way. It is not going to go near 60 here this week.

Wet and cool all summer. It has been a good summer for Atlantic salmon fishing but I have been busy.

Some of my ships

The white vessel is MV Camilla. She has been abandoned in the picture and is in the process of being salvaged. There was fun and games aboard of her;-)

After salvage she was sailed to Antwerp Belgium. I went across on her. What a trip. I could write a book about being on board while the crew were getting her ready ,the subsequent voyage and what went on after arrival.

The red vessel is the Lady Franklin. I sailed aboard her for a few years from the Arctic to the Antarctic and all points in between. We had a really rough voyage to Turkey aboard of her one winter.

Anyway time to take the dogs out

Someday Africa

Growing up on the rock

good stuff Ryan Bingham

Nice weekend

Nice warm Saturday afternoon in the crowded city

Pup wants to explore his world

Up the hill on back of the house

It was a little warm so we came back early. All three of the dogs will get a run along the shore this evening when it cools. Found a brood of grouse not 400 meters from the house. I know where there are 3 broods of birds within a 15 minute walk of the house. I won't fire a shot at either of them. Seems like it will be good for grouse. I hope ptarmigan numbers are good. I have been extremely busy but will have time the fall if all works out

That point in the last pic is a good spot in the winter for sea ducks. The islands are a seabird sanctuary.

Warm day here too warm for the dogs. Heading out in the yard to saw up some poplar I took down around the house. The woods are trying to creep into the living room. They have been keeping the place damp. Its 64 degress in the city. definitely warmer than that here. I would say its 70. Thats about as hot as it gets here. If you guys in mainland Canada or the USA ever get sick of the heat Newfoundland is your spot

Its Friday evening here and its a nice evening. There are 22 days until you can run your dogs on wild birds again. I am getting a little tired of hanging around our little community. I spend quite abit of time with my dogs and more so now with the pup here. The last time I got a pup I ended up having to take off to Kazakhstan and leave the looking after a brand new pup to my wife and daughter which they did without complaint. My daughter loves the new pup. Actually she loves all animals she is like her dad that way.

There is a cow moose out on the island just offshore with the sheep the past few days. She is up in the woods now but I will try to get a pic of her later

Drooling and nasal discharge again

Sam and Duncan have started drooling with nasal discharge again. The discharge is becoming more profuse and thicker, though it is still at this point anyway still clear. Anybody have any ideas. My vet cannot find the cause.

Anybody with any ideas?

Just let the dogs out

I just let the dogs out to water. Antares in Scorpio is to the south now over the sea. Deneb of the Northern Cross is over to the eastward with Vega and Altair and the milky way. These are the summer stars. I look forward to Orion and before him Pleiades because that will be the fall and my vacation time. While I waited for the dogs I could see the heavens and hear the sea. Back to work tomorrow. Sigh. Maybe when this fall is over I will go back to sea again

Sam doesn't know the meaning of slow Duncan is a little more relaxed. I wish I still had Sams energy.
