Beautiful golden sunset for our Fourth of July sunset picnic last evening Niles Beach
By 2023, the Coast Guard plans to phase out home-ported Island Cutters. They will be replaced with a fleet of six larger vessels called Fast Response Cutters that will be ported and maintained in Boston.

Beautiful sunset back lighting the thundering waves at the Lighthouse tonight –
Recent twilight scenes from Eastern Point. And the Harbor Seals have returned! In actuality, they are here all year round. We just see many more of them in the fall through spring.

Sunday night was simply wonderful for sky watching. Looking eastward, the nearly full Beaver Moon (also called Frost Moon) rose over Brace Cove while the seals were still lolling about on the rocks.
Passing Niles Beach on the way home the last lingering red rays of light were illuminating the Boston skyline and the Dogbar Breakwater light.
Called the Beaver Moon because according to the Old Farmer’s Almanac, November is when Beavers head into their lodges for the winter.

Fishing sure is a thing during the time of coronavirus. There have never been so many folks reel fishing on the Backshore and Dogbar as there have been this year.
Beautiful, beautiful autumn skies – sunset this past week

The north-south weather vane is perfectly aligned as are the three gulls encircling the Hall–both by pure chance 🙂

Head of the Harbor WOW factor sunset. Not too shabby from the the state fish pier, either!
