Fisherman

Here is a closer view of the local fisherman casting his net into the mouth of the Langosta estuary.  After each cast, he would pull a cord that closed up the top of the net, trapping the fish inside.

I think he and his friends enjoyed being able to bring back dinner while getting a little exercise and spending time barefoot on the beach.

The day before yesterday Kate of Visual St. Paul left a comment asking a question if there are a lot of lobsters on our beach, as langosta means lobster in Spanish.  The only time I have seen lobsters is when fishermen have brought in a few of them in a bucket along with their fish.

Some of the Tamarindo restaurants serve fresh lobster, so there must be local lobster around, although  I don't know exactly where their lobster comes from.  We do not have commercial fishermen on our beach.  We see a few local folks fishing for themselves, and some people fishing just for recreation.

We have photos of Peggy's Cove, Nova Scotia on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site this week.

It's a great photo of this fisherman, caught in action. Nicely done. Just viewed a friend's post of shrimp trawlers in Charleston, SC and then did some research. An interesting but very hard occupation, but fascinating. Now I'll be more appreciative of shrimpers when I'm enjoying their catch.

Looks like he's very graceful in that action.

Great motion shot! And great timing too, Dave.
