Windy Waterfront

Well, we're back into our typical winter weather. Windy and cold. It's been blowing an ever-living gale for three days now. I finally ventured out to the waterfront and grabbed a few shots today.

Looking down the fairway-

Another sailboat on the beach at Monomoy joining the other two wrecks that have been there for a year now-

A rough and cold looking harbor-

A moored boat getting tossed around like a cork at Francis Street Beach-

This old girl wasn't so lucky. Her mooring line parted and she ended up on the beach bumping up against a bulkhead. Luckily, someone put out fenders on her port side to cushion the blow. Otherwise, she'd be smashed to pieces in no time-

The Cap. John & Son 4 pulled into port late this afternoon and tied up behind the Hy-Line office. She looks to be a whale watch boat. She was carrying golfers who will be participating in a tournament tomorrow. They came over from Martha's Vineyard in all this wind. I asked the captain how it was crossing the Sound. He gave me a one word answer- rough!

The Captain John boats are head boats for whale watching/fishing out of Plymouth MA.

Keep up the good work-

It is useful to try everything in practise anyway and I like that here it's always possible to find something new. :)
