USCG Bridle or Tackle

I'd be able to tell you for sure but I didn't have a camera with a better zoom this morning. (The batteries were dead in my Canon Powershot S2, the Canon Rebel XTi is in the shop for reasons I'd rather not discuss until I get it back, and I can't get film developed for the Holga CFN120 or Kodak Brownie 2 so I just had the little Panasonic FX01*) It's ONE of them though.

The Bridle is from Southwest Harbor and the Tackle is from Rockland. I have tried to wrangle every Coast Guard connection I have to get a ride on one of them, but alas. This is as close as I could get today.

Breaking Ice on the Penobscot River. 7:10am, Temp: -7 Degrees F

  1. Couldn't you have just walked right out on the ice today to get closer to the boat? :)

  2. It's not the listing of your "gear" I like (because God know's that wears after a while), it's hearing where you keep it...and even then it's just relatively warm, rather than hot.

  3. Wilam guessed right away where this photo was taken. Auntie used to live down on south main on the river side and they would watch the icebreakers come up the river and rattle the names of them off. thanx for takin me down memory lane....
