Replenishing the Stores

During the Summer months on Papa Stronsay we have the opportunity to take our little boat out to sea to catch fish to put in the freezer for the following months.  Some years are better than others.  This year, on the 4th July we took advantage of the fine weather and set out.

On the way out, we prayed the Rosary and asked Our Lady to lead us to the fish.

Having invoked Our Lady and had two Orca sightings, we were confident of a catch.

 We were not disappointed! We caught plenty of Mackerel...

 ...and cod.

 Br Edmund Maria brings Mackerel aboard.

 A puffin.

Sheep venturing close to the edge.


On the return journey we cleaned the 102 fish we had caught, providing a meal for the seagulls too!


Thanks be to God for His provident care, providing us with such food on our doorstep.

Could almost smell the salt sea air! Fishers of fish - just for the moment!
