Pat and the McCarthys were at a wedding at the Castle Manor Inn last week when the power suddenly went out. The Castle Manor staff, especially Chef Dan, did an outstanding job making guests comfortable and safe. Shout out to the Castle Manor Inn!
Lunch at the Beauport was outstanding. The Baya Dulce margarita is well known far and wide. Pat’s friend saw a picture of the margarita on Facebook, was intrigued and contacted the Beauport for advice on re-creating the recipe for her friends in Colorado. Gail from Beauport was a great help.

Last Osprey Standing

Osprey Update: Liz is the last remaining Osprey chick still in the Lobsta Land nest. Here’s the Aug 27 update from the Essex Greenbelt Osprey Cam Website: 

Since late July, Liz, Vivi and Rusty have all fledged. During August, they remained on the nest, with fish being delivered by Squam. Annie took her leave (females typically depart south first) in early August and Squam has not been sighted at the nest for at least a week. And it appears that Vivi and Rusty have left the nest in the past week or so too. As of today, we are only seeing Liz, who was the smallest of the 3 chicks (probably a male as they are smaller than females), on the nest. Some viewers have expressed concern for Liz, but Liz has been seen bring fish back to the nest confirming hunting ability. Liz is just staying longer at a familiar pace before embarking on the long and arduous migration.

Do Osprey migrate together? That is a question I hear often and the answer is: they do not. Annie and Squam go their own way and could end up far apart by the time they reach their final winter destination. However, breeding pairs bond for life and reuse the same nest if they can year after year, so they will find each other again in Gloucester next spring (we hope), and start their 3rd breeding season in a row together.

Same with Liz, Vivi and Rusty – they will each chart their own course south. However, Osprey in general follow similar migration routes, so if you were “hawk watching” at a place like Cape May, NJ or Hawk Mtn, PA, you might see dozens or even hundreds of Osprey (and other raptors) soaring by overhead going south. But it is not a flock, it is a concentration.

Liz, Vivi and Rusty have a tough road ahead, as only about 40% of first year Osprey survive through year one. And remember, these three will stay for 18 mos where ever they end up – be it Cuba, or South America. If and when they return north successfully, and we sure hope they do, it will not be until the spring of 2022, and they will be about 20 months old at that point.

So, this is apparently Liz remaining at the nest. It is a little distressing  to see her/him alone but apparently all is as nature intended. Til “nest” year……

CBD and Migraines

One of my favorite things about helping people improve their lives by adding CBD is the feedback I receive from clients. Two weeks ago a woman in her 50’s came in and explained to me how she suffers from debilitating migraines at least 3 times a week. She has seen a slew of medical professionals, being treated with pharmaceuticals and Botox with no real results. She was desperate and was willing to try anything. After her free consultation we decided upon a starting point 500 mg CO 2 extracted full spectrum CBD from North East Kingdom Hemp, a small batch family Hemp Farm in Vermont.

She came back yesterday JOYOUS, beaming that she has not had a migraine in 10 days !!! ” That was the best 64 dollars I have ever spent!” She said CBD and me are her new best friends!
