Fish all night. Fix the boat, nets, and sleep during the day. Interesting life.
I don’t have any new Canadian photos to post, but in honour of my country’s 146th birthday I have posted a photo of what I have come to think of as my home. I hope you like it.
To my Canadian friends and family…Happy Canada Day!
We took a tour of the west of Lombok and our driver took us to Ampenan. Ampenan is a town that is now part of the greater Mataram area (Mataram is the capital city of Lombok). Ampenan is also a town full of fishermen. These are their boats. Well…this is the front row of boats. There are two, or three, rows of boats behind this row.
Every night, all of the fishermen push these boats out into the water and fish, and in the morning they come back in and take their fish to market. When I think about the hundreds of boats on the beach, I cannot imagine it empty, yet every night it is.
I’m sick, but beautiful sunrises always cheer me up.
That little speck down in the water is a man. A fisher man. A fisherman.
Also, this was my first attempt at this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge, Through, but when I looked at it when I got it home all I could think was that he was too small to really see. Still, I like the photo.
