Watching the crab fishermen
I’m not sure what the story was, but Conrad was removing the side shade that got built in when they added the shed part of this place. Some one had given him the pull down shade if he could get it off. He asked for some help so Steve and I and two other guys helped him get it out. We got it started out, then I backed my van in and we were able to get the roller onto the top of the van without too much trouble and hauled it over to Conrad’s place.
Steve and I head for town
Around two I drove Steve to Port Orford so he could do some shopping then we drove on down to the fishing port.

Here’s the crab boats waiting for a space to come in and get another load of crab pots. They started at two AM last night and will likely go until all their crab pots are out. I’d say it’s going to take more than one day looking at all the pots till waiting to be taken out.
One of the cranes used to load pots was broken down and they were working on getting it going, so it really slowed things down. I heard it needed a new motor that they went to get.

Taking a boat out
We left them all working away and drove on home for the day. They’ll be hauling in freshly caught crab tomorrow as well as putting out more crab pots.
That was my day.
