A Day Spent Sailing

The sails have been lowered; the sun is going down. The tired but happy sailors have left their vessels to return home with the day's catch.  It was a good day for fishing, and the families will celebrate this evening with a special meal.

Finnish fish sticks, or fish fingers as they are sometimes called, are found only in these cold northern waters. Tasty morsels from the beautiful, but now finger-less and somewhat morose Very Orange Northern Cod, as seen in the upper right of this card. 

Quirky Fact about fish sticks

Britons eat more than 1 million fish fingers each day.  Let's see, that would be 100,000 fish hands, wouldn't it? Needless to say, there isn't much applause coming from the ocean depths.
