Boats on Mondays - September 3 - 2007

Boats has been important for humans for thousands of years. As a mean of transportation - on rivers, lakes, channels and across the seven seas. And for fishing and hunting.

These boats I captured in 1994 - In Angelmo just outside the town of Puerto Montt 1050 km south of Santiago de Chile. As you can see it's lots of activities going on - here in Chiles "Fishing Capital". The Fish buyers are allready on board starting to trade the last Catch.
The quality of the picture is not the best - it's a scan from a dirty slide.
Mrs Lifecruiser has in important question this Monday: What ship goes to The Secret Island?

Ahhhh, my dear Viking: you make me so homesick...I remember Angelmo, which is close to it, where you can have the best oysters. Only the little shops don't (or didn't at that time) have a license to sell alcohol, only fish. So they offered "tea" served in mugs and my young sister (we were in our early 20's at that time) loudly declared how inappropriate it was to have tea with oysters instead of a nice white wine... Until we told her the whole story. Wonderful times, wonderful memories in a wonderful country.... :D

I truly missed that part of being in the Philippines. The fishing boats and the fresh catch...buying and making the fish into food.

I don't know how to fish, but I sure love a fresh catch. My husband likes his fish headless...otherwise, the staring eyes would bother him.

Surprisingly good photo quality after scanning a slide! You're reminding me of the fact that we have a tonne of Mr L's old slides to go through this winter... phew.

Very many people there obviously is involved or want something from that fishingboats. One can see how important it is for them with the fishing.

We don't have quite the same rush for fish here in Stockholm.... *giggles* Even though many Swedes eat fish, I think that you Norwegians beat us there actually :-)
