Jon Crispin's Notebook

Tilghman in Transition

Posted in Animals, Fishing, Food, Friends, People, Rivers, Water, Work by joncrispin on 28/07/2012

The second film Peter is shooting deals with the transitions that Tilghman folks have been making as a result of the changing situation with the bay.  Larry Gowe was in the Navy and when he returned to the island he used what he learned in the service and became an appliance repairman.

His brother Edward works at Walton’s Seafood counting and sorting crabs.

And this is Darnell Murray who was working at Walton’s with Edward.  Darnell was in the Marines for 18 years and served for most of that time on the USS Nimitz.  His grandparents worked at the Tilghman Packing Company.

Here’s one of the soft crabs from this morning’s catch.  We had some for dinner the other night.  Really tasty.

The folks at Tilghman have really opened up their lives to us.  Peter and I have made some very close friends.
