Gone Fishing

Here's the F/V Dolly B towing her jitney and skiff out of the harbor and in the second picture you can see the boats as a tiny spec. They are on their way to Nuka Bay. It's about an 8 hour run and fishing there opens at 6am tomorrow morning. Please wish them safe travels and successful fishing. This trip is for Wild Alaskan Red Salmon.

So, what this really means is that I am free!!!! Yayyyy!

I've been working my day job and then working on either the property (clearing & cleaning) or the boats (endless maintenance) afternoons and early evenings, and in between caring for the baby bunnies Tom rescued (long story - coming soon). No quilting. I want to finish my funky quilt and now Sarah has posted a design that I like and want to try too... And my pal Margie has found a great plugin for WordPress photo management and it looks both incredibly learning intensive but everything and more that I've been looking for!

I love being on your blog, watching these marvellous pictures of this trip for the Salmon would like to come with you, only getting up so early in the morning would be hard for me.
best wishes

Hi Iris, Thanks for telling me that you like to read about the fishing - I was worried that it was boring for people who might be looking for quilting stuff.

I miss going with the boats, fishing all day. It's really, really hard work but it's also heaven working on the water out in the total wilderness. Thank you for your message :)

I like reading other things then about sewing etc. and about the bottoms up--we didn't make it to the upper UP--we just did the lower part of the state. But now you have peaked up my interest!
