The other day I got a phone call where someone inquired if they had to take a ferry over to our Island. When I asked what direction they were coming from the answer was: Bar Harbor. That is coming up from the south-west. No need to go to Eastport, ME and take two ferries to get over here. Just take the bridge from Lubec, ME!

before the waters rise and cover the sand bank again.
Yesterday we only had a peak from the main island towards the light house.
Some whale watchers were out on the waters too.
Now I am on a new project. Betty was so kind as to show me how to make a rug out of plastic bags. Here is my first evening worth of crocheting...
