Though lobster boats continue to go out, they leave hours later than in summer. Lobstermen are bundled up to protect against the chill wind that is blowing across the bay. For most who work out of Rockport Harbor, lobstering will cease the end of this month.
and mooring balls are gathered to be cleaned and stored. This I am very grateful for because when left in the water the lines accumulate kelp, mussels and debris that makes them near impossible to pull from the water. Since that is my job during boating season, I like for the lines to be clear!
Yes, there is metamorphosis on the harbor, and what I notice most is our dock sitting empty but for a couple of lines. Pipe Dreams is in her winter resting place leaving us with another year of memories exploring the beauty of the coast of Maine.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
