F/V Donna Marie
If you're into fishing boats, there is a little sea scalloper that can be seen down around the docks. Her name is Donna Marie. She's an old wooden Novi. Her homeport is Gloucester, MA but she spends a lot of time here at Nantucket. She usually ties up at the end of the Town Pier but recently she's been seen laying at the fuel dock at the Boat Basin.
Here's a shot of her cutting house complete with a fancy fluorescent light-
A raft of Eider Ducks seen off Sankaty today. I have never seen these ducks here so late before. I thought they would be on their way up north to breed by now. it looks as though the males in the picture are molting. Or could there be another specie of duck mixed in?
By the way, when I shot the above picture today, I noticed several coir bags littering the beach between Sankaty and Codfish Park. God help the poor boater who gets one of these coir bags wrapped up in his propellor.
