A View From the Bridge

     The Roths, Hansens, and Fares have all left.  There is nothing left but us riff-raff.  I wandered into town to get some eye drops for Baxter and some groceries for us.  I stopped a few hundred yards short of the center of the bridge over the Passagassawaukeg River.  High tide had not yet arrived and the "golden hour" for pictures had passed,  Nevertheless the pictures from the middle of the bridge were worth the effort


     The bridge in the foreground is now a foot bridge, but it used to be a main link in Route 1.  The buildings in the background are in Belfast, ME

     This shot shows the Front Street Shipyard.

  
   Here we see the three tugs that are stationed here to help out the freighters going into and out of Searsport.
     

     The harbor supports commercial vessels, fishing boats and pleasure craft.  Twenty years ago the river ran red with the offal from the chicken processing operation.  Now it is a pristine waterway that all can enjoy.
     We leave a week from tomorrow.  We'll probably get in one more road trip to Stonington, and we'll spend some time getting the big rig ready to head south.
