Port of Galilee - July 27, 2014

Lobster Boats
I decided to stay local this morning, so I paddled down Point Judith Pond to the Port of Galilee.  

With the Blessing of the Fleet yesterday, it seemed that most of the fishing boats were in port this morning. It’s an eclectic collection of large fishing trawlers, smaller lobster and shellfish boats and charter boats. Generations of fishermen have worked the waters of the Point Judith Pond, the Rhode Island and Block Island Sounds and beyond at the edge of the continental shelf. With the construction of the Harbor of Refuge and the stabilization of the Breachway, Galilee became the home port to this large, ocean-going fishing fleet.

I snapped some pictures before the clouds moved in and the rain began.
