    Thanks Kim. I really enjoyed that. Truth be told, I’d like to see the unedited version regarding Sean’s comments…I can ONLY imagine! Happy Thanksgiving Gloucester! Love this town….

  2. Kim Smith says:

    Okay-will re-edit a version, for After Thanksgiving!

  3. That was fantastic Kim. I love the honesty of the lobstermen you captured, and the way you pieced it all together. It inspires me to do better with my camera. Happy Thanksgiving to you and all the guys working and unloading on Captain Joe’s dock.

      Thank you Skipper for your kind words-I am very thankful too for raising my children in Gloucester, and, through GMG, for the beautiful community of friends I have come to know.

    Kim this has to be one of my favorite post. OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your amazing. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Kim Smith says:

      This means so much coming from you–thank you (for readers who do not know–pclb, or Pat, is Joey’s Mom and Frankie’s Aunt). Happy Thanksgiving to you and to your beautiful family.

      Interviewing the lobstermen was Joey’s idea and he was directing in the midst of loading and unloading the boats. Whenever i am at the dock filming, no matter what time of day, I am always struck by how extraordinarily hard Joey and Frankie, and all the guys work–from the pre-dawn hours until sunset, and then some, yet still have a sense of humor and banter nonstop. Joey and Frankie and the lobstermen are the truly amazing!

    I just started my Thanksgiving with a cup of coffee and your video, Kim. What a wonderful way to start the day. I’m off to downtown Detroit to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade with family.

    Thanks Kim what a great video. Sean just cracked me up, had my morning coffee coming out of my nose.

    • Kim Smith says:

      Thank you Eric. Sean, and all the lobster guys I have met through Joey, all have a great sense of humor and are wonderfully good-natured, despite their long days and strenuous work.

      Thank you Tuffy-means much that you liked the video. I defer to you and will keep Sean’s words a mystery, no worries.

      I loved your video about v-notching females-very interesting and i would like to know more about it. And i would be interested to know when you have Monarch and unusual bird sightings on the water.

      Happy Thanksgiving to you-I hope you have a wonderful day!
