And here is Chilmark Fish Market.  These two have the freshest seafood you can buy.

And here’s why.  These stores back up to the dock where fishermen come to sell the day’s catch.

This cormorant already has his catch.

As you may expect, sailing is a very popular activity here.

In case you’re wondering what beetlebung means, back in the whaling days, they made the mallets used to drive the stoppers (bungs) into the kegs that contained whale oil from the wood of the beetlenut tree.  They also may have made the bung from the same wood.  I checked this out in Google, and you know the internet can’t be wrong.

    1. I’m sure you’re talking about the rowboat in the creek. Tell me what size and what media you want,(canvas, paper, metal, or whatever) and it’s yours with my compliments. I’m flattered that a photographer of your stature would want one of my photos. Thanks!! Love, Dad.
