|I could have said Good Morning America as it is in fact America I am seeing first thing every morning. But we all know it’s the name of a famous TV morning show. So to me it’s the world I am looking at every morning. |
View across the Water to America
Saturday an island-wide garage- and yard sale is taking place. Bea has 40 tomato plants and she will be offering most of them for sale. Neighbours are gonna bring stuff to our front yard and there will be coffee and lots of chatting going on.
Same day is the 2016 seasonal opening of the Roosevelt Campobello International Park. Also the Provincial Campground will be open for business.
The local hotel is already filled up with guests and our first sightseeing tours are scheduled to begin soon. We are also extremely excited about this year’s new super-fast boat connection between the town of St.Andrews and Campobello Island. The distance across the water is 12 miles and it used to take 2.5hrs to drive the distance all around the US or –in the summer take a ferry to Deer Island and another ferry to the mainland. With the new boat it will just take 15 minutes on calm waters.
The operator is the company “JOLLY BREEZE” which is also into whale-watching tours with their stately tall ship. They bought the new fast boat second hand from the FBI who used it to hunt gangsters.
