Christmas Spirit on the Al Hana Leviathan II

Fishermen often have a weird sense of humor. I don’t know if it’s the long hours enduring cold, crazy weather or what, but I have a number of examples that I’ll share with everyone this year. This one is particularly fun: a hangman’s noose around a teddy bear wearing a green scarf and red hat just in time for Christmas. Oh what fun it is… You just have to laugh. It’s like a shot out of a horror movie. I’ve photographed this gill net boat and teddy bear several times as the scene changes with the seasons. I keep hoping to run into the captain. I have a sneaky suspicion that he’d be a character worthy of a photograph.
