Where's Summer?

It felt like late October rather than late June today. Cold and windy. Will it ever warm up here before the Summer is over? I spoke with Captain Blair Perkins this afternoon and he seems to think we will see a change in the weather pattern beginning next week and that it will get warmer. I hope he's right.

Anyway, there is still something to see around the waterfront. here are a few scenes I grabbed today.

The old girl, Belle in her summer berth.

Dog is my copilot.

Arabella anchored in the general anchorage.

Nice 23 Parker.

Day boat sea scalloper at the end of the Town Pier.

Captain Tobey's water taxi.

Ida Lewis

Here are a few pictures I took of the buoy tender, Ida Lewis through the years. The Ida lewis was used to transport the illegal alien criminals this week from Nantucket to New Beige. {EDIT} Woods Hole.

Best Time Of the Day

The best time of the day to visit the waterfront this time of the year is between 4 and 6 am. After 6 in the morning it gets way too crowded with people. There is always something going on at that time of the day.

Brant Point is a good place to start-

Fluke boats heading out-

Most people never see this-

This sailboat owner has a serious rat infestation problem. I spotted this one on his boat early this morning. It was as big as a Volkswagon!

'Nother Nice Day

A few scenes from today:

The big sailboat from London anchored out in the sound this morning.

A tern resting on a harbor channel marker.

A triple header of bluefish I caught on an umbrella rig between the #5 can and the green light at the end of the east jetty. (I was fishing for bass).

A nice 52 Grand Banks trawler steaming down the main channel.

The Endeavor heading out with a full load.

George Bassett and family wire lining for stripers.

The Cormorant rookery at the rockpile at the end of the east jetty.

I counted at least 6 nests.
