Oldest Scalloper/Heading Out/Angus/Santa
The picture of the week is of Donnie Holdgate(wearing the orange oilers) and his son, Richard, scalloping off Pocomo. I believe Donnie is the oldest scalloper. He is 80. I asked him how long he's been scalloping. He told me 60 years!
My buddy, Angus Macvicar, took these shots of me heading out in my scallop boat one morning this past week. Angus and I are the first ones to leave the dock each morning. We usually meet up with each other somewheres off Brant Point.
And here are a couple of Shots of Angus scalloping up harbor-
Santa arrived on the Island today via a Coast Guard utility boat. Captain Tobey Leske sent me this shot. Thanks, Tobey.
