Boats remain in port -- the salmon fishing season on the west coast has been called off this year due to diminishing numbers of the fishy critters.   It's a devistating hardship on the fishermen, but hopefully it will give the salmon a chance to recover and build their population.

I think someone had fun painting that boat!

Yes, it sure does, Louise -- looks like someone did have a lot of fun with that paint job...
--With no salmon to fish this year I'm guessing that the owner had some spare time on his hands.

I haven't been commenting on the blogs lately, just a quick look, and on to the next part of the daily dose.

Eye catching color.

Should make a good test print on the new 2880.
