Late Sunday afternoon the blue skies gave way to thunderstorms,May has gone out with a bang! I had leftover photos from Saturday's boat excursion and then today jumped into the truck chasing rainbows.
It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!

I took alot of photos and I managed to drop a line and fish. I had better luck taking pictures than catching fish! They got a show called "The Mad Fisherman"...If I had a show it would be called "The Lousy Fisherman" ! At least it was nice to kick back and listen to the Sox on the radio. The whale watching fleet is in full gear as activity around the harbor picks up.

Light to moderate rain yesterday and nothing but grey sky today. The harbor meanwhile is in slumber mode. Aside from the lobster boats most of the fishing fleet sits idle until the 1st of June. The gulls screech,flock and wait as a handful of sport fishermen try their luck from the wharfs.
