Santa’s facial hair would blend right in in any coastal fishing town in Downeast #Maine
#scallop management in action. Don’t get fooled by the photo. Scallop fishing in #Maine is a roller coaster ride. #fisheries #oceans
Mostly chores today. But I did get to see this view of the Union River during a redemption center run. #Maine
Scenes from pilot scallop aquaculture operations in Blue Hill and Stonington, Maine on Wed., Oct. 30, 2013. Look for a story on the experimental project in this weekend’s Bangor Daily News.

A cold, dense layer of fog lingered in downtown Ellsworth, Maine as the sun came up Wednesday morning, creating odd light and an eerie mood.
A few shots from the Mount Desert Island Marathon on Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013. I took these in the MDI village of Somesville. The banjo player is Peter Lindquist of Bar Harbor. Results for the race can be found at the MDI Marathon website.
Acadia Nat’l Park is open again, and people seem eager to take advantage of the mild weather and to enjoy the scenery it offers. These pics were taken in the past few days, after the park reopened on Thursday.

I took this photo over a year ago in Addison. I only vaguely recalled that some years ago there had been a search for a missing teenager, whose photo I assumed was inside the mounted homemade display box.
Today, while in the paper’s archives looking for incidents similar to the tragedy Tuesday night in Roque Bluffs, in which two women drowned after their vehicle drove down a boat ramp and into the water, I came across the BDN’s stories about Krystal Higgins.
So, now I am able to post the photograph of the display box along with the story behind it.
Incidentally, the ship under construction in the background occupies the same location where Raw Faith was built before its undignified demise in December 2010. I don’t know if the ship in this photo was supposed to be a new Raw Faith. The last time I drove through Addison, several weeks ago now, I did not see any ship at that site. What happened to the ship in this photo, I have no idea.
