Campobello Island…. Head Harbour Lighthouse… or.. East Quoddy Lighthouse.. Canada

MQTlogoa1500x500 A Quality Time Canadian hike…… CANADA CANADA CANADA CANADA CANADA #CANADA #CANADA

Head Harbour Lighthouse..Campobello Island  (part of New Brunswick, is only 12 km away from Maine's coast).


After a good nights sleep we are going on a short hike (at low tide) to Head Harbour Lighthouse..


“Campobello Island is an island located at the entrance to Passamaquoddy Bay, adjacent to the entrance to Cobscook Bay, and within the Bay of Fundy. The island is one of the Fundy Islands and is part of Charlotte County, New Brunswick, Canada.”

DSC_0514 First, stop for a little breakfast and supplies.


DSC_0460-001 Make sure to wear good hiking shoes and watch your step… SLIPPERY


Hold on tight to the railing.


“The Head Harbour lightstation is about two and a half miles from the nearest community, Wilson's Beach. The rocky outcropping on which the station is set becomes an island at high tide and is connected with the main body of the island by more of these rocky quasi- islands. A road from Wilson's Beach runs to a spot within walking distance of the lightstation. Beyond that point, the station is accessible by foot at low tide.” READ MORE



“Iconic lighthouse that is only accessible by foot at low tide. Even at high tide the visit here is worth it to see sweeping views of Passamaquoddy Bay with it whales, seals, eagles, and boats. A great place to have a picnic lunch…Bring your Binoculars



DSC_0484 Time to head back.. “Walk on ocean floor to gorgeous lighthouse What a blast! Hiked over black seaweed, ocean rocks, sand and a few foreboding staircase-ladders all the way to the lighthouse. Cost $5 US, and worth every penny to keep the site beautiful.” Ok to donate a little more to help with upkeep… Just Saying…..



JOELINDA1 Joe Todd & Linda hope you have a great day and do a little Wandering……..

Proceed at your own risk. Beach exposed only at low tide. Incoming tide rises five feet per hour, and may leave you stranded for eight hours. Wading or swimming is extremely dangerous due to cold water and swift currents..Danger Danger Danger……..Just use common sense.

JOKES & More…..or less LOL

MQTlogoa1500x500 Have a Quality Time day…
LADYOLD A State Trooper pulled an 87-year-old woman over for speeding.As he looked at her driver's license he was surprised to notice that attached to it was a conceal ...weapon permit.Taken aback, he couldn't help but ask, “Do you have a gun in your possession?”She replied in her crackly voice, “Indeed, I do. Why I have a 45 automatic in the glove box.”The trooper then asked if she had any other weapons.She replied, “I have a 9 mm Glock in the center console.”The shocked trooper asked, “Is that all the weapons you are transporting?The little old lady held up her purse and replied, "Well, I do keep a 38 special in my purse.” Finally, the astonished trooper asked, "What are you afraid of?”And the little old lady smiled and replied: "Not a DAMN Thing."
While the priest was presenting a children's sermon before the whole congregation. He asked the children if they knew what the Resurrection was. Asking questions during children's sermons is crucial, but at the same time, asking children questions in front of a congregation can also be very dangerous. In response to the question, a little boy raised his hand. The priest called on him and the boy said, "I know that if you have a resurrection that lasts more than four hours you are supposed to call the doctor."
It took ten minutes for the congregation to settle down enough for the service to continue.
The Joke Of The Week:::
New Republican hero sure has a way with words...”Anthony Scaramucci, nicknamed the Mooch, is an American political figure and financier. Scaramucci is currently designated to serve as the White House Communications Director.” Important to have a "way with words" if you are communications director... Just saying.. Maybe he should speak to the Girl Scouts.......
abe “SAD” ……….But have a great day…

Garden/Tomato/Update/ An Ohio Garden Post……

Check out the original garden post: Just A Garden Post… Mostly a Tomato Post… LOL
I had great hopes for Mountain Merit Hybrid Tomato. The determinate, compact plants offer superb resistance to multiple diseases common to home grown tomatoes, including resistance to Fusarium 123, Verticillum, TSWV and Late Blight.  NOT MUCH GOOD IF YOU HAVE EARLY BLIGHT.
Even with extreme pruning….
This raised bed by the garden shed is one of three planting areas for tomatoes… Next year beans will be planted here.. no more tomatoes in this area.
And, another problem is my friends:::
deer These guys pretty much live in my backyard and my neighbors.. All vegetable plants not fenced or on the deck were totally eaten by the deer.. Also, some damage to the fenced tomato plants..
bear New fenced area for tomatoes.
Yes there are tomatoes in there. LOL
Look closely, see where the deer have “trimmed” the plants.
DSC_0080 A few of the tomatoes hiding out.
One more tomato planting area that seems to be working out pretty well.
In the past this has been a “leaf blight” problem area so I tried something a little different.
The entire area is covered with weed control fabric. The planting area is between 4x4 timbers spaced about 10 inches apart. Brought in bagged garden soil to plant the tomatoes in. So far no leaf blight. Also sprayed these with aspirin solution to help with the blight. A different variety of tomatoes.. Amish Paste…
DSC_0086 Wish me luck……………..
The pepper plants seem to be doing ok.
I had several extra tomato plants so I put them in pots on the deck.
These plants are all looking good.
In the front of the house one summer squash plant the deer haven’t found..
DSC_0091 Helianthus annuus, the common sunflower, is a large annual forb of the genus Helianthus grown as a crop for its edible oil and edible fruits. This sunflower species is also used as bird food, as livestock forage, and in some industrial applications.
Last but not least::: Linda and I have been eating Red Raspberries for the past month and have frozen several quarts.. Check the price for red raspberries at the grocery store…wow….
DSC_0069 Hope you all have a great day and Happy Gardening…. P.S. Peaches and blueberries aren’t quite ready to harvest….
