Most mornings are a little chilly and it takes a few pulls to get the motor running. Here's a shot I captured one morning of Henri just before the engine roared to life.
The moon phases wreak havoc on the tides this time of year and it's common to have both astronomically low and high tides. The low tides make it harder to get the boat back on the trailer when finished fishing without backing the truck too far into the water.
In the Grumman, I no longer get to haul up the traps.
My job is to grab them out of the water and pass them to Henri to haul up by hand. Here we are coming up on one now, time to put my camera away so I can do my part.
Mostly I just sit there and watch with my color coordinated boots and gloves that I will need when he catches something that needs to be banded.
Nothing in this trap except crabs.
And a sea urchin.
In between grabbing up the buoys, I'm content to just sit there with my camera.
And just take more pictures.
Just like I do when we go for a walk at the end of the day.
