71 Days

What I did during my summer vacation…

Day 43: Working at the Dock

“Anyone can be a fisherman in May.” 

― Ernest Hemingway

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.

Jimmy and Gray picked up some shrimp to share with their Wabi Sabi customers. Fresh veggies and seafood – can’t go wrong with that.

Beginning your day with a dolphin escort to work — can’t go wrong with that.
