First day of (relatively) little rain ...

A brief respite from the rain and I'm over at the docks to see what's going on. Most of the boats are out crabbing, but a few are coming in, weighed way down in the water, holds full of crabs. They're coming in to refuel, offload their catch at the processing plant, and then will head out again. Looks like it's going to be a good season for them.

In the first photo, one guy is teaching another how to tie a knot on a buoy line. "Then the rabbit comes out of the hole, goes around the tree, and jumps back in the hole ..."

Below that, two fishermen head toward the ramp and home for a brief nap before setting out again. And finally, the tools of the trade, sitting on the dock. More to come -- it was a GREAT morning for (a) lighting and (b) shooting. ©Carol Leigh
