Time to go fishing ...

Its 1st October tomorrow - the trawlers are ready ...

That's the start of the winter fishing season, and the new harbour, now has the 12 Apostles and the Skiathos making final preparations to go to sea. Nets have been repaired and loaded this morning, new warp ropes stretched and plaited to take the nets. 

The boats have been fueled and the weather worn tanned faces, of the fisherman glance upward as they look at the fast passing clouds - as they get ready to start work again, watched over by tourists in shorts and T shirts.

The squid boats were out in force last night with around two dozen lights on the water in the distance towards Evia. I am very pleased about this, as I now have 5 kilos of squid in the freezer ready for winter.

After the recent days of high winds it appears as if we have a week or so of relatively calm weather. Perhaps a little rain, but am off on travels shortly - man on a mission ...
