I had a great time talking with some very nice and interesting people that day and also had the opportunity to watch them make stitches in their nets. That's something I hadn't seen since I was a small child watching my great grandmother make a net by hand. I remember her reluctance in allowing me to make a couple stitches in her precious net. She took great pride in what she was doing and was known for her work. This was a source of their income, so I imagine letting go of it was hard. She did show me but unfortunately this knowledge had been long forgotten. It was nice to see it done again and to reflect so far back into the past.
