Meet Tony Lara, The New Captain of the Cornelia Marie! He started on the Cornelia Marie 20 years ago working as an engineer, he moved on from there to have a long career on other boats such as the Seabrooke and Fierce Allegiance. Still he was there when the Boys and Cornelia asked and I am very happy to wish Him the Best of luck. (I know you will do better than the last!) Thanks Miss Veda for the Photo!
There has been lots of photo shoots over the last two days once the wind died down so we saw all the boats sipping though the Harbor, Buying groceries at the stores and the like. The Time Bandit even did some great fireworks out at the spit the other night. Would have been nice if they let the town know about it, at least so the kids could see. Maybe if they were to act a bit nicer to the people in town there might be a bit less animosity between the Town and the Crews, and the film people would get a bit more corporation. Oh, and they need to take the Silly string away from the TB guys. Clean up of that stuff is nasty!
As of right now, the Time Bandit and the Wizard have taken off, The NW and the Cornelia Marie are supposed to leave tonight, and it looks like the Rambling Rose is going in for some repairs.
Good Luck to all the guys buy know that I am saying special prayers for my buddy Freddie's first trip on the Wizard, though I know Keith will take great care of him!
Speaking of Photos shoots it was an interesting afternoon the other day when we spotted a helicopter hovering over by the Crab Pot staging area across the street from the Hotel.
Looks like many of the Captains and crews were assembled for a shoot I think they entitled "Heroes"
Here is some video
Good shoot, and for once all they had to do was take the quick walk back to the hotel and the nice new comfy beds awaiting for them.
We had a nice dusting of snow this morning, and the temperatures had dropped so much that I was shivering when I took this next video
So, As I mentioned in the past Storms roll though the island in Waves, and the Following shots, Entitled "The Oncoming Storm" (It's a Doctor Who Reference BTW) show how quickly the weather Can change up here.
