Ida Lewis

While I was lurking around the waterfront today I spotted the buoy tender, Ida Lewis steaming down the fairway on a slow bell. She eventually made her way to the east face of Straight Wharf where she tied up. I went down to inspect her and grab a few shots of her. She's a big ship with plenty of things happening on her deck. Looked like the Eel Point #2 was on deck along with several other buoys probably from Great Round Shoal Channel.

I also witnessed this Cooper's Hawk swoop down and grab a Bonaparte's Gull out of the water in the Boat Basin.

And ... you'll see it became part of the bird column in the I&M this week.
