A Whale of a Time
I was feeling a little under the weather, battling a chest cold, but the forecast was for 65 degrees and we headed out to the tog grounds. The news was reporting a whale in the area, which is no surprise as the bay is full of bunkers. "Tugboat" Fred came in to the wheelhouse to tell me about the whale he saw on TV and I said to him" there he is." Pretty cool to see. We set up shop and picked at some blackfish and threw back the shorts and boxed the big ones. The weekend forecast called for a change to winter weather, and when I asked the "Legend" if he would prefer to go on Saturday instead of Sunday, he replied "Not really", so we kept the boat in due to the gale warnings. Good thing too, as the front blew in during the night and it rained ice cubes. Time to put the boat away for a long winters nap and fish on the big boats with the heated cabins. Thanks to everyone.
