Spring At The Waterfront

Spring has arrived at the waterfront. I have never seen a March as nice as this one. March is typically our worst month weather-wise here on Nantucket. We have enjoyed at least five days in a row of beautiful warm weather. Very very unusual. The waterfront is still quiet but there are signs of life. The flowers are blooming and people are starting to stir. The charter boat guys are thinking of splashing their boats soon in anticipation of their upcoming season. I noticed the Nordic Tug, Blue Yonder, was out cruising around today. Her owner, Pete, is taking a trip. He's going on the America's Great Route.

Commercial Scallop Season ends soon. There is chatter around the docks that it may be extended a week or so as there are still a lot of scallops out at the west end to be harvested.
