Stevie Aboard The Lady Jane Mends The Net

Stevie is a guy that’s worked his whole life as a fisherman.  One of the old timers. I wonder when the Sectors get put into place if there will be a place for career crew members aboard fishing boats like Stevie or if it will be a series of hired hands just punching in for a pay check.   Not really caring about really learning the trade, waiting for their paycheck from some large corporation which bought up the permits.
It doesn’t look good for the independent fisherman.

The Trustees of Reservations is offering a series of events at Ravenswood Park in Gloucester:

Sunday, Nov. 1, noon-2 p.m.: The new Education Center’s ExSKULLent Adventure. Families are welcome to join in the newest treasure hunt “Sweetbay Swamp Quest” and learn about this new family sport, make your own stamps, and make your own passbooks. Learn how and what animals eat with close-up views of animal skulls. Costumes are welcome. Free to all.

Saturday, Nov. 7, 1-3 p.m.: Ravenswood Rocks! Geological features tour with DCR’s John Ratti. A rock is not a thing, but a drama.

Pre-registration required.
