Celebrate the way the Fishermen Do!

Last weekend, when I photographed the fireworks, a Christmas celebration was taking place down on the docks and the lights on the trees and boats were lit. Having avoided the crowds, Ken and I went at dusk to get photos and we had the full stretch to ourselves; it was magical!

Once again I murmured, "This is SO NOT Southern California!"
They do this in Rockland too

What a splendid sight to see. Nice that you didn't have to fight with the crowds.

Such a wonderful idea - the lobster pots look perfect lit up in this way! You were able to get such good shots with no people getting in the way!

@henrir @tunia (chuckle!) I really do feel quite transported when we're here! @joansmor Sounds as though it would be fun to look up some Christmas photos in Rockland, ME!

@365karly1 Not everyone would know they're called "pots"! I sense you haven't spent your entire life in Montana! Thanks for your message and enjoying the photo!

@Weezilou My sister was a fisherwoman in Alaska for several years and she fished part of the time with pots:) Really enjoyed this photo!

@Weezilou I have a hard time staying awake after 8 and Rockland is for me over 2 hours away. I will stick to photographing the Nubble light all decorated. LOL sorry

Are these lobster pots Louise? They make a very unique Christmas tree 😊
posted December 7th, 2018  
What a great idea, and a great shot!

@merrelyn The "new style" lobster pots were used for this quaint-stylized tree! It's something of a dockside tradition!

Love this, so unique and colourful.
Great idea.

@gardenfolk LOL! Thanks! Everything's beginning to pick up speed as the stay is coming to an end; we leave on the 19th! Time to put away the winter boots and get out the sandals again!

@Weezilou Oh...I thought you might be staying for Christmas but if family won’t be there, neither will you!❤️

@joansmor I have been to Nubble Light for a visit! It was beautiful! I will look forward to seeing your photo of it all decorated! :)
posted December 8th, 2018  
This would have been beautiful! I bet it was a great evening! The fireworks would have been great too!

This is fabulous! Such great "thinking outside the box", and so fortunate that you were there to capture it and share with us!
