Finding a place to park in Fishtown and for a matter of fact, greater downtown Leland, wasn’t easy . It was a busy day and it was obvious that the season has begun. Captain Jack Duffy and the WHITECAP are ready to go fishin.
A cloudy, breezy beginning to what has become a beautiful April day. Still on the chilly side, but the weekend promises to be better. Leland shops that were closed for the winter are beginning to open for the season. Biscuit and I stopped by Blue Boat Coffee to say hello to Joe and Greta Campo. Joe is co-owner along with Nels… Read more »
A busy day that left me scrambling for pictures to take for this report. Van’s Beach and South Beach were easy because Biscuit and I are there every morning. On Reynolds Street, the snow is collected from all over town and dumped there until it melts.
A lot of activity around town getting Leland ready for the season. Above… Manitou Transit is rebuilding the dock. Below… the firehouse in it’s latest stages. Lawn care workers cleaning up everywhere. Store owners getting their businesses ready. It’s still a little chilly, but I’m sure it will warm up, it always does.
The day began with a cloudy get-up and just chilly to the bone walking the beach. Around one the sky began to clear and blue skies appeared on the horizon. Sunshine… Sunshine.
The Joy’s fishing season is officially underway: the watermen set the first trap net over the weekend. And, if “April showers bring May flowers,” we should be expecting beautiful flowers in this area!
The absence of wind in the early morning coolness was appreciated. Shortly after noon, rain began and Fishtown was vacant except for customers of the Cheese & Fish Shanties. Light rain falling is a good reason for not being there.
Another nice beginning to a late April day, but on the cool side. Not a ripple on Carp River, providing a mirror image of the Library and Museum. South Beach was host to the Saturday Rockers. The afternoon became clouded over and rain is promised for tomorrow.
The wind this ,morning was frigid on the hands taking pictures. Thirty Seven degrees in January and February is great, but in April it’s frigid. I watched the surfers trying to catch a wave, but it wasn’t happening, so I left. The sky returned to blue at noon.
This mornings rain was welcomed by most if not all, the afternoons fog a surprise. The gull below was dive bombing after a fish. I had hoped to catch him with a catch, but it was not to be. To be sure there is always beauty to be found on rainy/foggy days.
