Hoopers Strait Lighthouse, Another Place - Another Time

 

RETURN WITH US NOW TO THE THRILLING DAYS OF YESTERYEAR!

 

Skipjacks ruled the bay. The Watermen were the heroes of the day. The Crabbers up at dawn to tend their pots, the Oystermen headed out to tong for oysters. When the bay was fresh and the bounty was available to all who were willing to seize the day.
