I was able to spend the night at David Russel's in Bluffton, and catch up on laundry, etc this morning. I headed backward a bit - I am in Port Royal Sound area on Lady Island. One of those who get this blog, Pat, had emailed me a few weeks back that she would love to have me connect with this area.
This evening I stopped by a spot where I saw some shrimp boats on Port Royal. Supposedly there is a big fishing boat coming in tomorrow with Tuna, Mahi Mahi and Swordfish. I met Jim Buddy who prepares boxes on skids to transport the fish inland from the pier. One fish per box. I am going to try to make it back in the morning to get some shots of the catch.
I like the second shot - you can see his shadow making another box. I also met Jim Guntner and Ben Knowlton who operate the Tremalee, the biggest shrimp boat at the dock. I hope to get back there tomorrow and speak with the two of them a bit more - maybe we can learn a bit about shrimping.
There were a few boats around that have seen better times. Look closely at the first one - it is still hooked to its anchor line but flipped upside down. That's a real bad day for somebody.
Sunset was kind to me for a few shots . . .
..then I was on to Pat's house, where she fed dinner to two of her friends and I and we went to see a visiting choir from Columbia. Awesome choir. Anyway, more on Pat, Lady Island and Port Royal tomorrow.
All have a great Saturday !!
