The little western rigged sea scalloper, Donna Marie was tied up at the Town Pier today. I spotted her working off Sankaty yesterday.
Today was the day the new Children's Beach boat ramp was supposed to be completed. They have a ways to go. The finger piers along each side of the ramp are not finished and the bulkhead on the south side of the ramp is not completed. The ramp is open which is good news. Here's the crew working on the bulkhead today-
George Riethof e-mailed me a link to some pictures he shot from his airplane the other day. It shows the hundreds of coir bags from the man made bluff that collapsed at Sankaty last week littering the beach at Surfside and Nobadeer. Thanks for the pictures, George!
