Interesting weekend around the waterfront. The schooner, Harvey Gamage, was here for a short stay on Saturday. I missed a shot of her rounding Brant Point under full sail as she was leaving. Here is a picture of her on the hook-

The western rigged dragger, It Ain't Easy, unloaded it's entire catch at the Town Pier late Saturday afternoon. I counted at least 40 totes of lobsters and 30 totes of miscellaneous ground fish. Some of the lobsters were enormous with big barnacles on their shells.

Here's a close up of the lobsters-

As soon as the crew was finished offloading their catch, they left the dock and headed towards Brant Point at full throttle in the no wake zone. I was at the end of Straight Wharf as they blew past me throwing up a huge bow wake. Very reckless on the captains part to say the least.
