I thought it was time to mix it up and return to some working waterfront images after all the waterfront beach shots featured recently. With the onslaught of winter we’ve been having since 2011 arrived, I had been amazed that the sand/salt piles at Granite State Minerals shrunk as much as it did. That meant one thing – more freighters would be in town soon…so that local trucks could come to the rescue of Public Works departments across New England. Sure enough, upon getting back from Miami on Tuesday…I was greeted by two freighters in port.
The night shot add a dimension to the working waterfront feel for me, as we’re all used to seeing boats do their thing during the day, but it’s more rare that I stop to appreciate the fact that the cranes move through the night until all the minerals are unloaded. Here is a glimpse of the freighter along with the Heritage (the boat I take most often for some summer weather harbor cruising).
