Good morning from Long Cove! There was a cool breeze blowing in off the Atlantic this morning, so we decided to fire up our wood stove.
The bus doesn't seem like such a tiny home when we look at the other houses in Queen's County.
We spent last night camped out at a dock beside an abandoned fish factory. We went to a little cafe in Port Medway this morning and the owners invited us back for a concert tonight. They also offered the cafés back yard for us to camp out in.
On this day 235 years ago: A huge fireball meteor is seen across Great Britain as it passes over the east coast.
The 1783 Great Meteor was an unusually bright bolide observed on 18 August 1783, from the British Isles at a time when such phenomena were not well understood. The meteor was the subject of much discussion in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society and was the subject of a detailed study by Charles Blagden.
It has been speculated that the Hambleton Pallasite, a rare type of meteorite found in 2005 in Hambleton, North Yorkshire, may be related to the 1783 Great Meteor, based on the latter's track, and on weathering on the pallasite's surface. In support of this, in 2008 the terrestrial age of the Hambleton meteorite was determined to be 225 years (+/-). @finallyiknow_everything@finallyiknow_space@finallyiknow_onthisday
Watching the boats come in-and-out of the inlet is one of our favorite things to do here at the @delseashorestatepark. “I wonder how far out they’re gonna go?” and “I wonder what they’ll catch?” are just a couple thoughts that run through our heads as they stir up the wake on their way out to the Atlantic. : @lsimpsonphotography
