Valentine day tomorrow
02/13/2009, HopeTown

Another great day with a soft rain and great fresh seafood!

Patsy and George are enjoying the lack of snow, and we're all thrilled with the new drilling tool to expand Louise's artistic horizons.

We'll sail tomorrow over to some local islands and putter about. Our friend Pamela MacMillan has decided to join us next wednesday for a week, so we'll relax and enjoy the local scene.

Everyone is happy and healthy which is really all that's important.

Alive and well!

Our friends George and Patsy arrived yesterday from Ottawa via Nassua.

We have been re-supplied with Chariso and cheese, and a wonderful new drill has arrived so we've been drilling holes in the beach glass and shells.... lots of fun.

With the warm weather we've been snorkelling and recovering mountains of glass and shells!

Another visit to the lighthouse!

Wonderful relaxed long walks on empty beaches... it looks like lobster again for dinner!

Wow, I've got my warm hat on, fleece, and socks!

That damn cold Canadian wind is freezing!

Louise has evolved her beach glass collection methodogy, with impressive results.... we'll have to pay for excess luggage on our way back to Florida.

We're stuck here for a couple more days, but it's a wonderful place to be stuck.

We're meeting lots of other sailers, cycling and beachcombing, reading, and relaxing..

louise made fresh rolls (she grinds the flour on board) together with a wonderful pizza for dinner last night. One can't eat lobster tails every night.

The sunsets are spectacular and each evening I've been blowing my conch shell and I'm now getting several other boats responding..... there are some good blowers out there.... I'll have to practice!

Life is grand.............

Best wishes ..... Keith
