Sunshine Sandwich

That’s rain on both sides of a hot, sweaty, windless late summer day.  We had Alex Shure on board with us to try for some photography.  Here’s a picture of The Captain picking up his camera from the swim platform:



We planned to capture the curious cunners with both close up and mid-range shots.  The water was warm with a surface layer of golden fuzz.  I’d say maybe 65 degrees, but Alex could say for sure because he jumped in with only a bathing suit.

The visibility was marginal at about 10-15 feet depending on whether you were below the fuzz or still in it.  

We had cunner action and then none at all.  The folks of the boat said there had been diving cormorants above us all the while.  Sure enough, I found about three frames where Cal caught the bird flying by underwater.  Co-o-o-o-l.

I’m going to need technical assistance to capture the shots for future use in the movie, but it sure was interesting to see them as I down-loaded the footage into our computer.

…and tomorrow we get to do it all over again.  WooHoo!!!
