Fruits of the sea ...

Nets were set at 4.30am by the light of a distant half moon ...

Drifting around chatting, Apostolis smoking and sipping a coffee. The stars pre dawn are quite amazing, and the silence only interupted by the chugging of another fishing caique heading towards Tsougriaki, in the indigo light.

The island lights are clear and sound travels great distances clearly across the water. Eyes become acustomed to the night light, and ears tuned to the sound of fish splashing in the moonlight.

Taking in our nets as the sun rose two Dolphins emerged and escaped, something I am quite happy about. They had made their own entry and hopefully had a good feed as our catch was not enough to cover the fuel cost. Michaelis will be a busy man repairing the damaged nets.

However we have a feed of fresh Marithas, a Striped bream. a Sardilla or two and some Barbarouni which are often sold as the more expensive Red Mullet ...
