Hey-Ho Give-A-Dog-A-Bone, This Old Man Came Rolling Home

I have said it before and say it again: The border  crew between Campobello,NB and Lubec,ME is the nicest we have ever encountered on the U.S.-border.
Today I took Molly along for a walk along the south beach on Campobello.
Molly likes seafood

After our walk I drove across the border to get some gas and a few groceries. Molly was on the rear seat behind me in our convertible.
When the CBP-officer returned my passport he also had a milk bone in his hand. For MOLLY!

I didn’t know what to say… That was a truly nice way of saying Welcome to the USA.
We are still waiting for some rain. Whenever the forecast predicts precipitation, it kinda moves around the island without ever dropping off any moisture. In most cases the rain clouds simply dissolve!
We have been observing this phenomenon over several years, but now we are really getting quite dry out here. Also, this year we have had very few thunder storms and, of course, we are glad for that, as it always is a problem for Molly.

Also, we are having a very warm summer this year. Yesterday evening it was still 68F (20C) at 10pm and this morning we started out again with 63F. And it got way too hot and muggy during the day.
Finally the wind turned to north-east and the temps dropped.

Spent most of the day in the shade chilling.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Gotta love sitting in the shade chilling.

  2. We are waiting for rain also but at least you have a lovely view. We have a solid wall of white smoke. Amazing how depressing it gets when the world is stripped of colour.
