A lucky break.

How lucky is this!
A big Blue Cod.
A huge crayfish
or lobster.

This afternoon my Husband Erle, went for a walk down the wharf to watch the fishing boats come in, just for a nice afternoon stroll by the sea.

A man called out to him, 'would you like some fish, mate. we have caught plenty' Erle was over joyed to say yes he would love some, any would be lovely. The fisherman generously handed him a very large Blue Cod and a nice size Crayfish! Carrying them home was a bit difficult as he had no bag to put them in, but he managed to carry them ok. I was so pleased to see him come home with some fish, I quickly cooked the crayfish for our dinner, and set about filleting the large blue Cod, took me a while cause the fishermen had gutted the fish, that makes it much harder to fillet, but it was surely worth it! We shall have two meals from the fish.

Hi! Just a newbie blogger dropping in.

What a big lobster! I remember the time lobsters that size are ordinary things peddled on the streets of my sleepy hometown. Now, these are hardly seen in markets as these are already being exported.
