A beautiful sunrise over the bay at Pocologan. I very rarely see the sunrise, not being a morning person, but this one was beautiful! Of course it was an hour later being Atlantic time, 7:14 not 6:14 am. There was a crescent moon still out, my older daughter, as a toddler, called it the"fingernail moon." There was sea smoke a little later and ice on the deck. 0 degrees C. with 10 km/h wind.
A beautiful day in New Brunswick, but very windy and quite chilly. Spent the day taking lots of photos for future paintings and a nice lunch at The Gables. Very quiet in St Andrews today, enjoying the end of the season quietly by the Celtic Cross.
The sun came out briefly before noon when I was driving through the barrens. This morning I was at Wolfe Lake in Fundy National Park talking with a friendly Park Ranger about my painting trip, along comes another ranger with a good size black bear in a bear trap trailer!!! They let me look at the bear and it roared and charged at the cage end of the trap, very frightening to be near such an unhappy wild animal. They were relocating the bear to a quiet part of the Park. The Ranger told me to take a Midland Rd/ Mechanic Rd, dirt road to check out the foliage in the valley near Elgin. What he didn't tell me was that the road went right through the blueberry barrens! A lucky day!
At the beautiful village of Alma with 50 foot tides, I can see the tide from my window! This is about two hours from high tide. The lobster fleet sails in six days, lots of work on the boats going on this evening!
