Sketching Alaskan Shrimp

Over Mother’s Day weekend, my husband and I traveled to Prince William Sound to fish for shrimp and halibut. Once more the halibut won, but we had lots of fun and found some succulent shrimp. The land and sea were fairly colorless. Our boat and gear look so colorful.

May 15 13_2427We saw goats eating on rock cliffs and scores of migrating waterfowl.

There was a lot of snow on shore, but we walked along the tide line and I sat on a rock to sketch.

A hummingbird flew inside the cabin the first morning. He loved my red scarf.

He flew by several times that day. My scarf must have been so disappointing to him.

We used three shrimp pots and picked them twice a day and brought home 140 shrimp. The striped one is actually called a Coonstripe Shrimp. Didn’t know that until we got home.
