Many Commercial boats tied up here. Got up at 5:00AM(habit). Took a walk down to the dock to try to find some fishermen. The strong winds proved lucky for me as I got to jaw with a couple of lobstermen.
We talked about bait and lobsters and seals. Regular guys.
Even in a place that is touted as a prim and tidy place as Newport, I now know there is no simple way to keep all the fishing gear strewn about to look tidy. It is what it is folks. Weather it’s Newport,RI or Gloucester, Ma it’s not stuff that necessarily stacks up and stows away neatly. I feel much better about this after seeing the gear strewn all over the place down here on Long Wharf.
That’s the reality of it.
