Quiet day at the docks but I only really went down to the north end of the island to catch the Virginia Lynn going out the inlet. This 86 foot steel full time scalloper is one I have not photographed too much so I was anxious to take some photos this morning. I checked on her at the docks before heading out to one of my favorite spots by the lighthouse to photograph. The day was cloudy – and in fact it was raining on the island in parts when I was driving to Barnegat Light. But there was some nice light on the inlet and the green of the boat really popped out! The crew knew I was taking pictures and they waved as they headed out. I’m not sure how long they will be out, most likely several days.
Children are the hope of any country and we are naturally drawn to them, their joy,
