The other week an amazing thing happened. The seas opened up and poured out fish. Someone spotted schools of fish, and returned to spread the word. Every fishing boat in the village went out and set up the nets, trapping schools of fish (mackerel?). We watched each boat pull up to the wharf and pass buckets and buckets of fish.
Everyone grabbed their flour sacks and filled up. Salt was sold out of the stores as everyone was preserving their catch. We stored ours at a cousin's who had a freezer. We ate fish for a week, and our dogs were very happy because (animal lovers don't flinch) they only get our scraps...this week we had plenty of fish heads to feed them.
