Winter is the time the fishermen haul in their boats to scrub the barnacles of their (boats) bottoms, wash the decks and give them a lick of paint
The Arion is brought onto land by son-in-law and all his friends
Job well done. The boat is safe.
Time to party
And a few weeks later the boat goes back into the water
Same place, same scenario, but with a brightly painted, barnacle free boat
It's party time again
A little rain didn't stop the fun
I'm not allowed to say 'good fishing', that brings bad luck to a fisherman, so, as they say elsewhere, 'break a leg'
Any excuse for a party is good.ReplyDelete
That's how it used to be and somehow I think it will continue...laterDelete
When life was usual...
And also, when life was less hectic. But living on your island, life has not ever been as hectic, as other places, I suppose.
One lady was remembering, when they and another family, were the only people "on their mountain." And there were no school buses or etc. The quiet of that life, in time gone by.
Remember... Your island... And know, all that will come back. It will...

Life is certainly less hectic now. Plenty of time to finish off the small stuff I've put aside or put off. Potter potter. Just the way I like itReplyDelete
I'm glad it was the boat they were scraping the barnacles off LOL :))ReplyDelete
Just the boat but meantime they got rid of a bit of rust in their larynx!Delete
Didn’t know saying good fishing was bad luck. I won’t ever say it againReplyDelete
Me bad lol
My husband won't go fishing if I dare, and I don't, to say good luck.Delete
Lovely boat; she looks beautiful with her nice bottom.ReplyDelete
All ready for another years fishing. It's a family boat. He went out night fishing with granddaughter last weekDelete

My garden more or less ready but it's raining and the only thing I have to plant are pumpkin seeds. They always do well so I shall push them in every spare space. Just waiting for sunshine and hopefully some plants at the plant shooDelete
