Can you really teach an old dog new tricks? We shall see in the days, weeks and months ahead as I start blogging. What do you think about “Joanie’s Jog Blog?”
Summer has arrived in Maine in all its glory and the flood gates have opened for tourists in Freeport. Easier to get around running than driving.
Perfect summer day yesterday. Started at 5:30 AM on the docks in South Freeport, and jumped aboard a friend’s boat to go lobstering. Lots going on in Casco Bay early in the morning….ospreys swooping , seals bobbing, eagles nesting and fish jumping. Caught a lot of lobsters too! We nothched and threw back several “Lucky Ladies” (female lobsters who weren’t bearing eggs but had not been previously caught). Once a lobster is notched on a tail fin, it can’t be included in any catch going forward. A good example of sustainable fishing. After we got back to port, I jumped ship and went for a run. Into the garden afterward to harvest the first lettuce of the season. After planting another crop of beans and carrots, I jumped into our cove on the incoming tide for a short swim. I love to plan my day around the tides during Maine summers. Thus the title of my first book, “Running Tide.” Thinking of another book. What do you think about another book?
Tide is coming in… Gotta jump in. Great way to calm my back muscles after picking strawberries this morning with other Master Gardeners for the Wayside Kitchen. We need to keep the hungry well fed.
