Where did the time go

Can't believe that it has been almost a month since I last posted on here.  We have been fairly busy, with Melissa, Signe and Darren coming for a visit for a week.  What a joy to have them all here.  Darren had not been here since 2009 so I believe he saw a difference.  Both Melissa and Darren were a big help (we did not expect them to work) and Signe was a joy for all.  She is so full of energy and curious about everything.  She would say, "You have a boat coming in.  It is a BIG one"  She loved the people and the ocean and for 2.5 years is as smart as a whip.
The first two weeks of July were slow but it picked up the last two.  We still have not had a full dock this year, but the season is not over yet.  The weather has been cooperating, with it being hot and sunny.  Even when the wind is blowing, the strait is calm and it helps keep the mosquitoes away.  George and I have had a battle with them this year.
My garden is not doing well this year as it is full of weeds and I do not have the time to tend to it.  Maybe one of the slow days I will get to it.  The peas need picking but the tomatoes, zucchini and cucumbers are a sorry site.  I picked only two lots of lettuce, enough for three salads only.  Rain is needed and the weeds need to be gone.
Have not seen any wildlife for the last week or so.

 About a week ago a huge grizzly came through the yard.  He was the biggest bear I have ever seen.  A deer was just a few days ago.  Hopefully there is not anything else in the bush as even the birds are gone.
