I've been wondering when that photo space limit would kick in. But if you are just now hitting it, I've got another ten years to go! Can you imagine the glut of images that will be on the internet in ten years. Logging on is already like opening your eyes in front of a fire hose.

Hello, are there any crab derby events taking place on Monday, the 6th, Labor Day?

No Toni.I just shot the fireworks, which marks the end of Crab Derby for this year. The skipjack race is Labor Day on Deal Island. They have events going on throughout the day. It is a small but very nice event and you will see tons of yard sales on the way there.

I will be aboard a skipjack if I can get up early enough. I think the races start at 9 or 10 am, but I have to get there at 7:30, and I tired tonight.
