Bass Harbor, Maine is a beautiful protected cove on the southwest side of Mount Desert Island. Harbor to many working lobster boats, Bass Harbor is a working man’s harbor.
It is low tide on a foggy morning and the day starts slowly. Seamen stood at the dock chatting and laughing leisurely. A few started out with a short paddle on their dinghy’s towards their office for the day. The Harbor Master joined in the paddle, touring the harbor keeping a close eye on the moored boats.
Crabby II and Double Trouble stood awaiting ready to rock and roll on the Maine waters.
Seeing a number of dinghies awaiting on the shore to begin the morning commute, the paddles seemed to call to me to jump in and join the rush-hour traffic.
