As usual when sailing the Bay, I grab some shots. Nothing special, but here's a sample.

At the end of a working day on a commercial fishing boat:



Gulls clamoring for the residue of the day's catch:



Not the skipper, but the boss:

I like the 3rd one best, When I lived in S Florida, this was typical scene,
#4 is differentially the "Boss" Look

Looks like you had a nice day off

Thanks, we did have a nice day - until the raw water intake plugged as we were motoring up the channel towards our dock (a story for another day). It was beautiful and the bay was filled with dolphins - suckers are hard to capture, so I went for the birds.

Thanks, Capn. We're enjoying gorgeous weather at the moment. We'll be heading to Ohio in a couple of days (for my daughter's wedding!), so while I'm there, I hope I can capture some changing colors - something we don't see much.

Hey, thanks Dave; I appreciate it. Yeah - I'm sure that's what she's doing, since orders seem to come thick and fast.
