Thanksgiving Week, Brooklin Boatyard, Center Harbor, Maine

There were a couple of snowy, sleety days but most of the week was like this: stiff cold breeze usually NW, sometimes gusts to 30-40 knots. The Reach looks green when it is whipped up by that sort of wind. Last Sunday, Nov 24, there were stranger gusts than anyone around here had seen in a long while. Waves dashing through Center Harbor and breaking over the shack on the Brooklin Boatyard dock.  A very intense day. Very glad Scout was hauled a month ago. John White's lobster boat, Acadia, was being hauled at the boatyard.
