Back to news of the season
last update: 08/24 @ 19:33

I keep looking at this and hoping and expecting to see more of a downward trend. Instead, it seems like a noisy plateau that we’re having a hard time getting below.

I hope to see that change over the next week or so. But I know we really need a vaccine before we can think about getting back to normal.

Meanwhile, we’re reading between the lines of what Robert’s online school will be like this year. The end of last year was not great — but a lot better than some surrounding jurisdictions.

Beautiful day on the river

Sarah and Robert were taking care of some biking issues today while I grabbed the canoe to head back to Angler’s Inn. Having an apartment with kayaks on the coast in Maine was great, but I really love some more current.

I flipped on the eddy line today and it felt good to be in the water on a hot day. After that, I was having a blast in both the Maryland and Virginia shoots.

Clearly the weather was very cooperative.

Robert is doing will with his driving skills despite becoming a fan of Formula One racing (and getting his parents interested).

We decided to practice a three point turn and not test out the Subaru’s off road traction on this rainy day last month.

Back with fond memories

We had a great time kayaking around what Google Maps says is Delano Cove in Friendship, Maine. And yes, we did take our inflatable lobster — there were no overly close encounters and our inflatable survived. More photos in the vacations section.

It’s hard to believe it was only a week, we had so much fun!

More news later…

… Right now, we’re enjoying being out of the heat and humidity of Alexandria. We drove up to Maine and are loving our little cove-side house and rental kayaks.

We’ve been gunkholing around the cove, marvelling at the always impressive tidal changes.

No tidal bore here but some impressive currents between islands.

And so far, Robert’s recycled boat is the winner. He thought to grab the bottles for flotation and they have served him well for the “Glass Drift One.”

“Rocky,” my entrant in the contest did not go well. I had thought the right sized rock would hold my sticks and birch bark together. I was mistaken. Or, more accurately, I didn’t have the right sized rock.

Sarah’s woven birch bark is the winner, so far, for style.
