Fresh catch stuck in the mud

While out and about yesterday we saw this fishing boat up from the Carolina's stuck in the mud and listing.


By the time we had returned with the camera the second tide had started to come in.


We drove over the bridge for a bow view.

 The boat had been there since 6:00 am it was now going on 4:30 pm.
They waited through the first tide of the day but, it
wasn't enough for them to be able to back off sand bar.


The sun came out and began to set so I looked around
for things to take photos of.


Like this bait and ice dock building wonderfully weathered by the salt air.


Hundreds of traps stacked up.


Thick blue dock line.


Life ring.


Then the fishing boat called "Big Bob" came rushing in 
with the one of the crew  shouting "dinner".
 

Looks like a few fellow seafood lovers will be there too.

As a sailor, I know all too well that feeling of gloom as you wait for the tide to come in and release your boat from that nasty shoreline/sandbar....waiting and waiting to find out if any damage has been done, is there anything man can do to release it...But alas, the sea takes from you only to give it right back. We always know the tide will come...we know it will be good to us and the boat. She's lovely like that!
