Thunderstorms are not frequent in this part of the world but we do have them. I have stopped three trips so far this summer with a thunderstorm on the horizon. This afternoon started out nice enough even if a little windier than predicted. I was on the saltwater part of the Saint George and could clearly see this storm coming from a very long way off.
There is so much written and talked about that is negative about the environment that it is easy to forget our successes. Here in my corner of Maine loons are present on every pond inland and not at all uncommon on the salt. A marked increase from early in my career. Eagles are now a regular part of almost every trip no matter where.
