Today the Wreckhouse winds peaked at 114 KPH and as expected someone tried their luck once again. Same story and almost the same photos. A few decided to hold up and wait for the winds to calm and around 6:30 PM Traffic was flowing through. Still no Signage there!

The Photos are all starting to look alike to me and
I suspect the Stories are also the same.

Several Tractors with escorts pass through when the winds calmed out with sections of a new Home.They stayed at the Cape Ray turnoff all day until it was clear.

With the longer days we have been getting out and about a bit more and it's always great to capture Video and a few Pics when we do. Here's our latest from last evenings ATV ride. We discovered 8 - 10 Arctic Tern Nests near the community and I suspect there are quite a few more. We had to be careful walking in places because the Eggs are camouflaged pretty well in places.

She kept her Helmet on in case the Terns decided to Dive Bomb us. They usually do when the chicks are hatched and can inflict a few cuts on your head.

Yesterday my Eight year old Granddaughter and I made a hike to the top of a mountain in South Branch. We hiked the Mark Rock Trail to pay respects to a fallen Soldier,Sgt. Craig Gillam who died Oct. 6-2006 in Afghanistan.

A video and some photos of our Hike here.

Paying respect to a fallen Soldier.

June 11th was Jacques Cousteau's 100th. Birthday. I remember the Reels of film we watched in school on his explorations and the TV Documentaries. Quite a man!

... and they say there are no Hero's left?

So click on the link and look at an inspiration to all men out there. Stuart Ashby, I salute you.

He said: "When there is no public transport I hitch-hike. I don't think anything of it. Enough people stop to get me from A to B and people are interested when they find out where I am going."

What a Guy!
