I recently visited Apalachicola, Florida and being near the coast I automatically search for shrimp boats. I found one or two docked in town by the bay. While in a gift shop I visited with a charter boat captain, Pam Vathis of Reel Memories Charters, and I asked if she knew of any place I could take pictures of shrimp boats. She guided me to what she called the "Working Boats". These working bay shrimp boats were docked along this inlet canal near the bay resting until their next day's run. Because I was on vacation with my husband, I didn't paint very much but I took a lot of reference photos for future use.
