A Fisherman's Graveyard

Sunday morning, the hubs and I knew we were only 
halfway through our busy weekend.
We needed a quick distraction...
so we got up early, made a left out of the neighborhood,
and headed down to the beach.
There was some breakfast involved...that needs it's own post...
and a scavenger hunt of sorts, 
to see what cool things I could find to photograph!!

I love what we found...
there was some climbing involved, eroding pathways,
and some downright danger involved in 
obtaining these pictures.
The hubs helped, he has a good eye...
and we work well as a team.

oooooo, this adventure was so worth it,
let me introduce you to a Fishermans Graveyard.












Cool...right??
While I walked around the area, my thoughts were focused on the fisherman,
the ones that used this gear...
the ones that made their living here and at sea!

  2. I would think living the life as a fisherman is not easy.. I would be hanging over the side of the boat, lol. I am thankful for them though, without the fisherman we would not have the delicious seafood I love! Great shots!

  3. WOW.... OH WOW.... thank you again Debbie for taking me to a place I would never get to see if it wasn't for me finding your blog! Your photos tell a story, I also wondered about those that have worked so hard, risked their lives, on the sea. I have never been on the sea so I can only imagine what their days are like. Thank you for my trip today! xxDazee (aka Jackie)

  5. Very cool!! I'm a fan of old rusty anything....but this stuff is amazing. I'm like you, "random" photo ops always get me wondering about who/what/when....it's so fun!

  6. I love all things nautical. What becomes of that equipment? Can it be repurposed? Those ropes tell their own story, don't they?

  9. If only those old ropes, buoys, fishing nets, lobster & crab pots could only talk bet they would have plenty of adventure stories to tell. Great post Debbie

  15. Looks like an interesting place to visit! It's probably close to the equivalent of a Midwestern ag junkyard.
