Day 43: Working at the Dock
“Anyone can be a fisherman in May.”
This week, we’ve had temperatures in the balmy 90s, but everyone wants to eat some clams, so Jeff and the crew have been enjoying the sun and fun! I worked in the office some this week, answering phones while every caller mistook me for my mother (we do sound alike). I did get to take some pictures of our returning clam farmers. I know if I had to work that hard every day, we’d be eating a lot of beans and renting out a room or two.
