Says Bob Bowné, “This morning this GIANT work ship was “parked” just off the coast of Bradley Beach in the morning mist. It has a 6 or 7 smaller attending vessels that are scooting around and coming in by the beachfront. Looks like Bradley has plenty of sand, so I do not know if it may here for beach replenishment or some other duty.” Anybody know?
Could it be the Russians with a new load of emails for the media?
Or maybe it’s our order for diagonal lines for Main Avenue.

One of the dredgers is back in our area…I shot this this morning off of Allenhurst… Not sure if this is a continuation of the original sand replenishment or perhaps some additional maintenance due to storms.

THE CHIEFTAINS. Music to sing on deck: “An Poc Ar Bulle/ The Dingle Set”
“I dreamt we were standing
By the banks of the Thames
Where the cold grey waters ripple
In the misty morning light
Held a match to your cigarette
Watched the smoke curl in the mist
Your eyes, blue as the ocean between us
Smiling at me…”
THE POGUES. “Misty Morning, Albert Bridge.” The Pogues were a Celtic punk band from London, popular in the 1980’s.
