The above picture was taken yesterday after the snowfall.
It has been very quiet around the waterfront the past few days. There has been no sea scallopers or draggers in at the docks to report on for quite a long time. Hopefully a few will come in here this weekend during the blow we are anticipating.
When I was out in Madaket the other day, I took a picture of a guy who has been bay scalloping for about 50 years! His boat is one of only a few wooden boats used in the fleet. It used to be an inboard. He's 70 years old and still going strong. Here's the picture-
No work was done at the Children's Beach boat ramp today. Not sure why they took the day off. Here's another view of the cofferdam under construction-
Eight guys (and one girl) went bay scalloping today. The only girl in the fleet used to go on other boats as a culler. She finally broke out on her own and rigged up her own boat. She's been fishing for a couple of years now and is doing very well.
If any of you off-island readers (or anyone else for that matter) to the blog want a particular picture of the waterfront posted here, let me know what you would like to see and I'll do my best to get the picture and post it to the blog. Leave an idea for a picture in the comments section.
Looks like a very cold week ahead.
Today's High & Low Temps.
