This is the boy who waited at the dock....
And the boat that he was waiting for.
This is the Captain, who gets up every morning at 1am to drive the boat (and has for more than 40 years).
This is the crabber who empties the pots and follows the Captain's orders
So that they bring in a good catch- the result of working 350 crab pots.
And these are ours!
We stayed on the dock and listened to them talk about their work, and explain how they did it and tell stories and laugh and give each other a hard time.
And this little kid hung on to every word.
And after a little cleaning....
They are nothing short of a teeny slice of heaven.
There's something quite satisfying about knowing where your food comes from- in getting it from the source, and enjoying it with people you love.
Yup, a teeny slice of heaven!
