More Harbor Shots

Here are a few more shots from Sunday. (Click on each for a super-sized shot.) I drove out to the end of the dock to get as close to the lighthouse as possible, and here are the results. There seemed to be a race going on.

It was interesting to see the lighthouse up close. A few years ago there was a minor controversy as to whether or not the lighthouse was leaning after a ship rammed into it. (Click here to read about it.) What do you think?

I couldn't resist taking a shot of this guy, who obligingly posed.

He lost interest and flew off when he noticed I was more interested in shooting the Water Treatment Plant than him. Remember when you could drive all the way around it so you could park and fish? It's closed off to the public now. Maybe Homeland Security had something to do with it!

I remember going to the treatment plant on a 'field trip' as a kid. It's been there since 1955 – hope the city moves it as planned some day!

Once again, thank you for the photos; a native NorthCoaster gets homesick for that water, y'know.
