This week we visit Gloucester lobstermen (father and son) Jim and Scott Rowe. Jim is pictured first and Scott stands on his boat the Miss Kelly. After a test run, Scott deems his new Cummins engine in working order for Saturday. He’s been waiting a frustrating four weeks for parts.

So yesterday this Homie was on the roof of Toby Burnham’s lobster boat The Jupiter II with a striper plug with it’s treble hooks stuck in its leg and abdomen. it was stuck hobbling around and in obvious pain.
Toby was inside the cabin oblivious to the condition of the seagull and when he popped his head out the seagull flew off the roof of the boat and onto the roof of our dock here at Captain Joe and Sons.
Toby grabbed a piece of herring and lured the injured seagull back down off the roof of the dock and just as the seagull got within striking range he snatched it by the tail and held it by it’s neck.
Then grabbing a pair of metal cutters he snipped the treble hooks to remove them from the feet and abdomen without tearing the belly out of the seagull.
Moments later he was on the deck eating a piece of fish scraps Toby fed him.
A job well done just a week after his 50th birthday.
Nice work Toby!
Nice work Toby!

The beautiful French ultramarine blue of the Allison ~ Carol. The word ultramarine is derived from Middle Latin ultramarinus, meaning “beyond the sea,” because it was imported from Asia by sea.
From wiki: Ultramarine is a blue pigment consisting primarily of a zeolite-based mineral containing small amounts of polysulphides. It occurs in nature as a proximate component of lapis lazuli.

Definition: Arethusa was a nymph, possibly the daughter of an Arcadian river god, and a follower of the virgin goddess Artemis. One day as she was bathing, she discovered the river god Alpheus desired her, so she fled. She ran as far as the island of Syracuse, but he kept up. In desperation, Arethusa called on Artemis to defend her. Artemis did what she could. She transformed Arethusa into a spring, but according to Pausanias, the nymph didn’t remain pure even in her transformed state. Alpheus had himself transformed into a river running under the spring so that the waters of river and spring might mingle. AND KNOW YOU KNOW.
