Love the coast guard shots! The boat is so pretty that against the harbor.

I hate to say it but I'm with Craig Glen lately. To much Google Reader, not enough commenting. Sometimes I'm quiet like that.

Great shots Steve! What a good sized boat. Beautiful against the dark blue water and behind the rocks. Before you know it there will be buds on those trees!

There is always something really interesting going on in the harbor...people coming and going from and to exotic lands. Its an intersection and exchange of dreams in motion.

As Bernie says, in a harbour there is always some activity. I do appreciate what these guys do for us. Lovely pics Steve.

Hi Glen, I'm glad you are comming in and having a look. Commenting takes a deal of time and I've cut back myself.

Hi Kim, Yes, it's hard not to stop what I'm doing and shoot the boat. I have several posts dedicated to the Grand Isle.

Hi Sharon, I've seen bud on the trees here in Gloucester. They are starting to get nice and fat. Soo there will be bud break as we say in the vineyards.

Hi Bernie, Gloucester used to be a place where boats would come from exotic lands in the 18th and 19 the century. Now she gets a cruise ship or two during leaf peeping season. Now we are mostly fishing boats, sail boats, a few yatchs.

Hi Joan, We are happy to have the USCG here in town. Most people do not realize what they do for us. Most don't even know that they are the fifth branch of our armed forces.

Love these shots. I'm in the mindset to take a drive out to Ports O'Call now but of course I can't do that. :-)

Read your reply above about commenting. It does take a lot of time and I hate not being able to hit everyone, especially on Watery Wednesdays. We do what we can.

Love that first shot!
It Looks like they popped out behind the rock to catch an unexpecting fishing boat violating the rules.
The Coasties do a great job protecting and saving those in trouble. My Father a long time fisherman knows first hand, but unfortunately they have had extra duties thrown on them to enforce a confusing mess of fishing regulations.
Love your site Steve.
