Sit Down, You're Rockin' The Boat

The weather has been mostly rainy and dreary since Linda and Tom went home. Sadly, since "home" is in South Dakota, they've had rainy, dreary, snowy and cold. I'll stick with plain old rainy and dreary. (We won't ask San Geraldo for his opinion.)

The fishermen love this weather. Between showers (around noon) I walked on the beach and took some pictures. (Click any image to enlarge.)









I dreamed last night I was on a boat to heaven..
Watch and listen:

STUBBY KAYE AS NICELY NICELY JOHNSON IN "GUYS AND DOLLS," 1955.

      That they are. I hope I never fail to appreciate that view.

  2. Love the clouds in some of those pictures! It was interesting when the 2 boats got closer and closer to each other. I expected cannon balls to be flying. :)

    Thanks for sharing the Stubby Kaye video - I hadn't seen Guys and Dolls.

      That's really why I included so many boat photos ... the clouds.

  3. Wonderful photos of the boats and sea, Mitchell. I would imagine you can get the freshest of fresh fish on a daily basis......you can see them hauling the fish right out of the water, right? Looks so peaceful there.

      Lots of fresh fish in the public markets. But also lots of sardines!

  5. Can you buy fish "fresh from the boat"? That was one of our favorite things to do while in Costa Rica.... what kind of fish do they bring in?

      I've never seen the fish being sold right off the boats. But I've never been at the port when they've come back in.

  6. I wonder what sort of fish they catch and can you buy it from them when they come into port?

      These are commercial boats, so I don't think they sell right off the boat. Depending on whom I ask... they fish for bream, bonito, snapper, sardines...

    2. I suspect something more sinister; they are up to no good rather.

  7. All weather is good weather ... for someone or something, I suppose.

  8. There is still a fair amount of blue sky to see in your photos. And the boats seem surprisingly close to shore. But the sky also gives a sense of a lot of wind higher up. I bet your weather changes a lot just now.

      Clear and calm one moment. Blowing and rattling the next. San Geraldo's cyclonic winds.

  9. Moody pics - serene (except for some unlucky fishes).

    Stubby Kaye had big personality and big heart. I always felt he deserved still more recognition than he actually got. And anyway, when even Sinatra has to play second fiddle to him as required here (when else did THAT happen?) he holds the spotlight with ease.

      I LOVED Stubby Kaye. What presence. And what a voice.

      It wasn't at all dreary just then. We DO have those days, too. But they've been rare this year, so I actually like them.

  11. What is that boat out there? Kon-Tiki?

      The fishing boats vary in size and extras, but they haven't changed much in 100 years.

      We should harmonize. It keeps popping back into my head.
