Looking toward Whaleback

Above average temperatures dominate the weather news. Usually at this time of year, a white weather pattern involves snow rather than fog. But rainy fog is what we have – where the familiar shoreline disappears into a bank of misty white. Meanwhile behind the scenes, the Joy is being fitted with rails that are about eight inches higher. The fishermen explain that this will allow room for a fish box to remain on deck (rather than being put into the hold) while the boat is under the net: it’s a labor-saving improvement. Plus, the guys enjoy welding, and I think it’s fun to make photos of sparks and blue smoke flying through the air.
