As we approached Iles du Salut we passed this fishing boat pitching wildly at anchor on the north side of Ile Royale. At first we thought they were in trouble but then realized they were OK. The man on the top was talking on a cellphone. These hardy fishermen were comfortable in conditions which seem rough to us.
