Well, it's actually the preview for the comments that's not showing spaces, or like the result will turn out. Should be pretty easy to fix too - and thanks!
Grannyj, it certainly was wonderful. From a childhood after the war, to go down to the waterfront, walk with a father among the boats. Watch the crabs coming onto the steaming pots at the dockside; see the women doing the 'picking' to get the fresh crabmeat.
It wasn't easy work or without injury, any more than that of the fishermen. We really appreciated the delicious crab as a very special treat to take home.
Years later the restaurant was a place to bring someone, with the real persons all around, the people who made livings in the woods and with boats.
We've forgotten a lot, in all our modernizing, our efficiency, and our ways of thinking about work. One doesn't look backwards except in appreciation, but look forwards we must.
Change must come again, and this time to build again what are real lives, not waiting for what's next on television.
Well, television was new then too, and had its wonderful experiments. Some amount of the drama was real.
That's the taste we need, and it will be as welcome as Tom Lazio's food when it arrives.
And yes, we can do this. Takes a bit of real imagination, like Eureka's real pioneers.
Hope you find a place to be reminded, grannyj.
There used to be a little and nice seafood restaurant down in the lower part of Trinidad. I bet it's still there, and may still have some of the old family people as it did. Very good seafood to boot.
I hope you find it and enjoy. A walk around that village, the beach, and up the hill too.
p.s. I hope North Coast Journal will fix this commenting, so that there are spaces between paragraphs. A very easy fix for your web provider to do, and hope mentioning it helps you both.
