Night Watchmen

This photo is actually a couple weeks old when I was taking an evening walk along the dock. Now the dock look quite different as boat captains wind up their seasons and head home for a break before coming back near the first of the year. Most leave their boats parked here and fly home so the dock gets packed with boats 2 and 3 deep. Today the captains and crew were buying crab, cod and pollock to ship home. It seems wrong somehow that the crew has to pay the same price I do for seafood after working so hard . . . . . I've got 60 pounds of king crab in storage for the holidays meals - might have to make some more pizza!

Ya that is kind of unfair that the captains and crew have to pay the same price as you. I think they should get a discount. have a good day.

That title "Night Watchmen" almost made me cry a little. I have always heard and tend to believe that gulls carry the souls of those lost at sea. It sounds corny I know, but I found the whole picture and caption touching.

Ooooo I'm jealous of the cache of crab you have.
And Lothian, I didn't catch that. You're right. That makes this picture almost mournful.

Lothian, thanks for sharing that . . . in Alaska we have lots of mythology surrounding ravens but I had not heard that about the gulls. That does add a bit to the photo . . .
