More images from the last visit of the year by the cruise ship "MS Eurodam". And some days you just never know what you may find. While in the bank parking lot I see and hear a commotion in Harbor Cove. I drive over for a closer look and I see mini tugs circling around tooting their horns like a cowboy roundup on the water! The wind was strong and white caps were in the inner harbor and thought a boat was in trouble. Just as I grab my camera they headed towards the head of the harbor and out of view. Back in my truck I caught up with them behind Cruiseport Gloucester. And on a trailing boat I see a film crew and another on one of the tugs. Why they were filming I don't have a clue but when they made passes by the 128' tug "Independence" I knew it was a comparison shot.

If you look close at "Toot Toot" you'll see an over sized toy wind up key on the stern just to the right of the flag!
It's not "soda" and not "pop" or even "soda pop" it's "tonic"!
It's a "rotary" not a "roundabout"!
"Going up the line" is a term used when leaving the island!
A "jigga"is a homemade powerless go-cart!
It's not "Break Time or Coffee Break" it's "Mug-up"!
It's not a "water fountain" it's a "Bubbla"!
