Of Lobsters and Sun Dogs


Today was launch day for our lobster boat!

Shortly before 8:00 a.m. the boat transport truck from Milbridge arrived.





From our dooryard to the harbor, it doesn't take long, but if you've never seen the process, it is fascinating to watch.




Down the ramp and into the water . . .



slowly floating away from the trailer,

and into the ocean's tide!


We are very thankful and blessed for today's successful launch




of this lady we have christened Fearless.

And just a few hours later we stared in awe as this Sun Dog appeared in the sky.




It was impossible to capture a shot that would do it justice . . .

but WOW... what a rare sight... and our first time to ever see anything like it!
