I was down at the inlet by 7:00 AM today as the Monica was due in between 7:30 and 8:00 AM and I didn’t want to miss her. I had pictures of her before she went to the shipyard to be worked on but when I showed them to Dan Mears, her owner, he said she looked so much better now with a new coat of paint! So, I waited for her to come in and took some photos of her and then stayed at the dock to photograph them packing out more tuna and swordfish. Tomorrow I will visit with Dan and his son, Danny who captains the boat to learn more about their work and ties to the fishing industry.
