Cold And Calm Waterfront
I went for a walk around a very cold and calm waterfront this morning. It was only 19 degrees when I was down there. Slushy ice had formed overnight in the Boat Basin. First ice I've seen in the basin all winter.-
This gull seemed to be cold-
No sea scallopers or draggers came in overnight. The Madi J left as well as the Ruthie B. It'll be interesting to see how many boats come in here this weekend as there is a gale approaching. If we get more than one day of wind, most of the guys will spend the extra five hours steaming home to New Beige and not layover here.
The bay scallop fleet was able to get out this morning. They just made the cut-off time of 10 am. I counted around 4 boats out fishing.
A tug and barge loaded with aggregate for Glowacki arrived overnight and tied up to Steamboat Wharf.
Work was halted today at the new Children's Beach boat ramp. Not sure why they took the day off. If the ramp is to be completed by Spring, these guys better get cracking!
