Nantucket Lightship that is! On my way home from work I spied this at the Rocky Neck Railways. I had to run in the house and grab the camera....and the dog. Check out the mushroom anchor!
"Molly" got a kick out of seeing it too!

I have a beagle named Molly too! Hope yours isn't as big of a spaz when the neighbors come around.

Sounded like the start of an old rugby club song for a minute there,

Our dog loves the boat too but I think she just likes to go anywhere there is food! ha-ha-ha!
Always enjoy your pictures Jay. Hopefully the weather will warm up quickly for us (and the dogs) here in the northeast.

Kewl pic of the lightship Jay. The shot of Molly is a real nice shot also. Nice Dog.
I just read a book by Edward Rowe Snow called "Mysteries And Adventures Along the Atlantic Coast".
He writes some great stories about the Nantucket Lightships.
If you're into books about the sea you should pick up that book. It contains a nice selection of stories and adventures. I like it because when my children get older I'll read the stories to them either on the boat or by the fire place.
In addition to some historical pieces, ER Snow (a Chatham boy) wrote several dozen very folksy, interesting "character" books all of which were set in Cape towns, some with fictional names. I've been collecting his works for several years now and have every one he wrote, including several signed first editions. An eclectic guy for sure...

ER Snow AKA the flying santa lived on summer street in Marshfield. I remember borrowing one of his old cannons to record the sound for the 1812 overture and the Boston symphony
