this one is for Lands and Forest Consulting , back in Ontario … a Red Oak, healthy at 4 ft diameter
in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia
heading out the LaHave River and scaffolding on a float to do work on a fishing vessel .. not what you see every day ….
we head out the river after an afternoon of computer problems … heading into fog and the temperature keeps getting colder and colder …
we were hoping to head out the next day to Liverpool, so we got to an outer island so we could make a good escape to the ocean and head south west .. the fog came and went and the seas rolled us side ways most of the night . and by morning we were socked in with fog …. there is a saying Man Plans and God Smiles ….
we were up at 6am .. fog … up 7am … still foggy … up at 7:30 the anchor drag alarm beeped (for no reason) …. "what the heck" get up … we put 20 litres of diesel from a jug to tank, we had breakfast, cleaned and organized boat … still foggy .. can't see past the bow … we hear a motor .. an outboard raced by us,(2 people on board), we waved, they waved … 15 minutes later the boat came back only one person on board … I waved, he waved .. ha ha .. I waved him over to us …
Tom Drew was taking his wife a veterinarian to work and was racing back to milk his goats, only a few miles from us as the crow flies, that is … he came aboard and we found out his was the last light house keeper at Moshers Island, which we are anchored at ….. he gave us lots of history of the island .. he invited us to come for fresh veggies and goat cheese …
we were listening to the marine weather and it was calling for thunder storms this evening and wind shifting to the east .. which was not good for the anchorage … so we headed back up the river … this picture was a fishing processing plant at one time and now is a permanent resident
this is a wide opening from LaHave River to False La Have ,,, we checked the charts and we could go thru this channel … it is only deep in a small winding path .. depth sounder would get you thru it ..
days one hour trip back up to LaHave Bakery
we had just planned to stay for a few hours and then head out to anchor, the other boats are wooden and schooners, our hull was build by Grampian out of Oakville in 1973, then Bruce and Betty Mitchell
of Missassaga did the rest of the work to get her in the water and sailing … we are young ones next to these 50 - 75 year olds
tonight was pizza night … having wheat issues is not easy … but thanks to these products it is possible… anchovies for me … thank you !!!

no sunset tonight … completely fogged in on the LaHave River
to be continued ….
