June 29, 2013 (part one)

this is the old rail museum, too bad it is closed up

an old school house

we found out that the lobster season in this area closes today

fish bait being loaded on to a freighter to be shipped to the fish farms in Newfoundland, it will take 8 - 9 hours on the water, and they ship by boat every 2 - 3 weeks.

another fisherman arriving with his lobster traps, that he pulled for the season

the wind was really gusty, but these guys sure know how to handle their boats.

a baby star fish, left in one of the traps.

this fisherman still uses wooden traps, but has the metal ones too.

he told us that he has 280 traps, to haul and store inland

he wanted to know what we paid for lobster in Ontario.....then he just shook his head !!
The fishermen sure don't get paid much for all their hard work, dangerous work too !!!
