More Fishing Boats in East Mooring Basin

April 11, 2010

This shot was taken on the east side of the pier. The one yesterday of three fishing boats was taken on the west side. Here you can see the Riverside Trolley tracks in the foreground. The rusty line below the hills is the metal and pavement breakwater (or jetty?) for the basin. It's a wonderful structure for walkers, bikers, people who want to fish, etc. Until recently, you could drive onto it, but the entry to the pier is currently closed to vehicles. I'm not sure, but I think the pier or its railings may need repairs.

From the pier, docks stretch out on either side, and at the end of the pier, the long arms of the jetty stretch up- and down-river. You can get a tremendous view of the ships and boats, toss in a fishing line, or just enjoy feeling like you're out in the river. Of course, the jetty also projects the boats. Let's not forget that!

I love the way you left the trolley tracks in the picture - they complement the breakwater in both color and line. And the boats are perfectly framed between the trees. A wonderful shot!

I like this view across the tracks. It gives the shot a neat perspective.

You have convinced me: this is a very good place to watch the boats!
