Ospreys & Scenes Around The Waterfront

It was a beautiful day to be out on the water today. Here are a few shots I took-

A family of Ospreys at Jackson's Point, Madaket.

Here you can see the two chicks waiting to be fed.

Nervous parent soaring above the nesting site.

Captain Blair heading offshore in the Shearwater.

Captain Andy Robert's conch boat.

Old tug and barge moored just off Brant Point.

One of my favorite places on the Island. There are a few under(salt)water freshwater springs bubbling up here. I know of no other underwater springs anywhere else on the Island.

Off Topic

I received this story and pictures from a buddy of mine.

65' Custom Built Motor yacht, staterooms, GPS navigation, twin Supercharged diesels, etc. = $2.5 million
Crane and Rigging complete with faulty turnbuckle = $2,500 per hour
Champagne and Strawberries, dockside, for the excited "soon to be Owners" = $250.00
Watching your dreamboat nose dive into the harbor, accompanied by two Corporate representatives just prior to "inking" the final Paperwork... Priceless...

Check out the guy on the stern, holding on for the ride of the day!!!
