The "littlest" catch?

Laurel (right), Teagan (my grand-tapir, in the red shirt) and I went to our favorite coffee spot for lunch yesterday. We had a window table at Coffee Girl, where we could watch the mist and clouds over the river and see the fishing boats as they came and went. I like the decor, the food and the people. The decor is very real and not kitchy; it includes this vintage life preserver from the Alleutian Ballad crab boat, which starred in Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch. The Aleutian Ballad wintered in the dock here at Pier 39 (the building that houses Coffee Girl), and here's a photo I took of it last November. It's fitted out with seats for its new life as a tourist fishing/crabbing boat in some of Alaska's calmer waters. I happened to be looking out the window on April 2nd this year as it passed downriver. I wonder if that's the day it left here for the summer?

I actually never watched that show because I don't have TV. Did you watch it?

Hi Tapirgal. Thanks for your visit and comment today. I've seen you around and never clicked before. I'm glad I finally did! I've got some Oregon ties myself. (And I got rid of my TV, too.)

What a sweet-looking grandchild. I can imagine how proud you must be...I hope she enjoyed her time at the restaurant with you.

While we have TV, we don't watch it much, and so missed the Discovery Channel's production...it was probably one of the few things worth watching!

A most interesting post today. Thanks!

Sounds like a wonderful place to spend some time.

Great photo but of course I'm prejudiced as a grandparents tend to be.

Yes, we watch Deadliest Catch every week. My husband and I are loyal fans. The coffee girl looks like a fun place to eat and your grand child is just adorable.
