The Penobscot Bay Watch has been collecting information this fall to establish the importance of the upper Penobscot Bay fish nurseries.   Their blog is one of my “must reads” and one of the only RSS feeds I subscribe to.  Although we’re not able to stay as active as we’d like, we do manage to participate sometimes and we were happy to invite the group to use our beach for their research.

Part of the fun of doing the tree work is smelling the fresh wood chips and burning the brush at the beach…last night the stars were out, the breezes were calm, a few good friends gathered and we drank red wine while the pine branches crackled…might not be the glamor of Desperate Housewives et.al. …but it’s all good to me 😉

We’ve been enjoying unusually warm, calm days here on Penobscot Bay…so I brought my spinning to the seashore yesterday and spent several hours listening to the gulls scream, the young male loons call and watching the seals bob up and down in the Bay.  I tried to capture them in a photo for you but my very best efforts only gave me tiny black dots on the top of the water…definitely not… Read More

It’s written in stone, I get the Friday of Common Ground Fair off…someone else must man the campground because I’ll be in Unity at 9:00 AM waiting for the gates to open.  This wonderful celebration is only 45 minutes from the campground, always around the Fall Solstice.  For me, the weeks of anticipation between Fiber College and the fair feels like waiting for Christmas when you’re 10 years old…only now I’m old… Read More

Fiber College has been the focus of the past weeks…and then it took a week to get rested enough to want to look at the computer…but I’m feeling great again so… This morning Steve needed to be on Sears Island to monitor the clam flats at 6:00AM…(it was a really low tide this morning) and I tagged along for a bit of a hike.  We had 950 acres all to ourselves and… Read More
