    Default Shrimp-Fishing in Sanches, peninsula Samana

    Wazzzzup?
    Today we`r tripping to Sanchez city (check out in the map, it`s in the peninsula Samana), the unique shrimp-catching-splace in Dominican Republic.

    We left Las Terrenas early in the morning, to have a time to do foto of everything in our route. Fishermen come to work at 6:00 am, when thes sun is rising and shrimps are feeding.



    It`s a special fishing net, used for catch shrimps. It has a circle form with plumbum balls at his termination. When the fisherman throw the net out, only 6 or 10 shrimps are catched every time.

















    Sometimes the fisherman`s bag has 20 or 30 pounds of shrimps for a day. Than you buy it in a fish store, like about 3 dollars for pound of fresh tasty shrimps.
    Meanwhile children study fishing, cause they don`t have a force to throw the network, therefore they catch small fishes and crabs (in dominican – “cangrejos”).







    Pelicans observing our boat trip. They are wainting for the X-time, when outflow comes, and some fishes appear in the bay bottom.

    I drove through Sanchez last year on the way to Las Galeras. What else is there to do there? What made you go to this town ? Thanx, SG

    Default Sanchez - historic town

    There are many old English style colonial houses that were built by the builders of the old steam railway line, which is interesting. You can also see whats left of the old pier that the trains would load directly to the boats.

    Default Victorian Houses

    I'd love to see some of the wooden houses restored. Much of the gingerbread and detail is being lost. There is so little left of this kind of architecture and Sanchez has some of the best around.
