Sailing then & now

Well we won the Roosevelt cup last weekend.. my contribution to sailing is staying out of the Captains way or unhooking the foresail when it gets hooked on the safety line.. sometimes I'm allowed to fetch beer!
A fishing weir,
fog rolling though the cove
and our boat just before we left.

Next weekend Saturday only the gallery will be closed for the Rum Runners Race, the forecast is for thunderstorms again this year which is what we got last year too.

Speaking of the gallery things are very slow here this year as we don't have our private ferry going to Campobello Island.  The ferry that has been going there sank last year just before Christmas and the owner doesn't seem to be trying very hard to get the replacement finished!  SO if you are planning on going to Campobello via Deer Island this summer you can't , however we would love for you to come and spend the day on Deer Island instead!

I also got a bunch of new paintings this week so come check out the gallery walls if your on the island... remember the government ferry from the mainland is FREE and runs every half hour during the day.

It's HOT!!

Just had 3 really hot muggy days think the temp peaked out at 37 C which is exactly 100 F... warm enough even for me!

The Gallery will be closed  July 14  and 15, 2018 (next weekend!)
We will be sailing near Campobello for the weekend.  The Canada Race was a 4 way tie for First, the 5th boat was disqualified because it started it's engine.
