Quiet & Still Waterfront

It was glassy calm and quiet around the waterfront early this morning. I grabbed a few shots.

Looking out over the mooring field from the docks-

Toscana's new barge and tug, "Bucky" unloading aggregate at the Steamship dock-

The end of Old North Wharf is always an interesting place to visit in the early morning especially at low tide. There is always good bird watching there if you are into that kind of thing.

A pair of Cormorants drying their wings along with a small gull I cannot identify. Can anyone assist?

And a Great Egret fishing for it's breakfast in the shallows-

Looking over towards Easy Street-

The exposed rocks at low tide at Old North Wharf-

And finally, two cats enjoying the early morning sunshine at George Andrew's scallop shanty-

I learned of a bit of sad news this afternoon. Gus was put to sleep this week. Gus was a fixture around the waterfront for almost 16 years. He went scalloping with his owner, Douglas "Smitty" Smith. Gus was a good dog. He will be missed around the docks and waterfront.
