- Sunday, August 20, 2017 This morning gave us a gorgeous sunrise, in fact, as I was writing the blog for yesterday, the sun was a brilliant pink/orange.  I am the lucky one whose desk overlooks the east and every morning there is this amazing present given to me.  Yes, I love my sunrises from the […]
- Saturday, August 19, 2017 Ok, it was another weird day on the island, the wave size and wind that was predicted for today never materialized.  We had a beautiful day on island with only 6 visitors all day.  The only unwanted visitors were the biting flies, this was truly the first time we were forced […]
- Friday, August 18, 2017 Today’s forecast is reminding us a lot of our first 5 weeks here, cold, wet and windy.  There are supposed to be 5 overnight guests tonight and 2 on the campground but looking at the forecast, there is a chance they will all get to the island this morning but won’t […]
- Thursday, August 17, 2017 Another quiet start to our day, not much to do now the grass is mostly dormant.  The trails are most likely good until we leave, Brian wants to cut the grass down near the engine house today, I am going to pass the riding lawn mower over the plateau, and I […]
- Wednesday, August 16, 2017 Today is our day off and we have a list of land based chores we need to get done.  But today is the day the lobster dinner was rescheduled because of last week’s weather, let’s hope everything works out as planned today. The sunrise was gorgeous and I spent the early […]
- Tuesday, August 15, 2017 Ok, my blog will start with the phrase I have typed many times this summer, another foggy morning!  The sunrise was beautiful though with it trying to burn through the fog.  Everything is wet this morning as if it rained but really it is wet from the fog, looks like the […]
- Monday, August 14, 2017 Waking up this morning there wasn’t a breath of air moving and the sunshine was spectacular off the water, almost blinding. The family that stayed on the overnight slowly started moving out to the front porch with their coffee and I just relaxed on our side with a knitting project.  There […]
Only 3 weeks left on island - Sunday, August 13, 2017 Waking up this morning, we already knew it was going to be a busy, crazy day.  We had the guests from last night leaving, and they promised they would be packed up and out of the quarters by 10:30am, and the new family to stay was arriving at 11:30 with Ethan’s […]
- Saturday, August 12, 2017 Our morning started out rainy which was a great chance to have a slow start to the day.  We needed to start today with a burial service for my dog, Phinneus.  We decided on a spot where we felt would be a perfect resting place for this adventuresome pup but no […]
Goodbye Phinneus - Friday, August 11, 2017 Early this morning I was sitting at the desk overlooking the east side of the island and saw a ghostly site, a square-masted schooner sailing by the island!  This was even before sunrise but there was enough light to have it stand out.  It was just a little spooky seeing it […]
