I thought I would start out the Neighborhood Views with a shot of a waterspout that popped up yesterday. These are very rare, so I’m glad I caught it. It is the little tail to the right of the cloud.
The next photo shows one of the two ways to get on and off our island. It is a car ferry run by the state. The other way is a bridge that is fifteen miles North.
Pictured are two ferries. The service has eight that run twenty-four hours a day. The dock in the foreground is for fishing and connects to Robert’s Point Park.
The next photo shows more of Robert’s Point
The photo above shows the marina which is part of Roberts Point.
Here is a boat leaving the channel that goes to the Gulf and is arriving at the breakwater of the marina. The marina is on the right of this photo and Gulf to the left.
Another picture of the marina showing our local shrimp boat The Pollyanna. (The white boat in the center) In season, you can go to the boat when it docks and buy shrimp caught only hours before.
You can also see a red-roofed building to the right which is the scene of many social events including concerts in the park. The little structure in the foreground is a picnic table with people having a picnic.
One last view of more of the park with places for family gatherings
The ferries are running to the right of the photo and the fishing dock is in the lower right (but out of the photo)
