Night fishing.

A couple of exceptionally warm nights during an unusually warm "winter" have brought out the local night-fishing fleet...



I counted 50-plus boats out there, most brightly lit to attract the fish...



SLIGHTLY FISHY PARENTHETICAL ADDITIONAL-INFO-TYPE THING: A neighbor says they are after lobster, which are drawn to the lights....

Pretty as it was to watch, I can't imagine eating anything that swims in these waters.

Is that the ocean?? Oh, I want to be there! My dream is to be able to live by the ocean.

It is indeed, Betty. Took these photos a couple hundred feet from my place.

I heard recently that seafood will be gone by 2048, so I keep telling the kids to eat up while they can!

Lights on the water at nightime are so very pretty :) Thanks for letting us see!
