On a weekend in the middle of December when the wind was particularly high, the dredge boat, tow boat and barge which had been working in the harbour at Summerside, were tied up at the wharf. They left the next week, their work completed.
It was difficult to take photos of the vessels since they were in a secure area but I took a few photos from the shore. The tow boat, Atlantic Tamarack, was small compared to the barge and the dredger.
This area is home to the marina as well, which sits between a popular tourist area known as Spinnaker’s Landing and a breakwater.
The colourful shops of Spinnaker’s Landing are always busy in the summer.
The marina is empty, the boats all ashore for the winter.
However, every summer, the area is alive with marine activity when the recreational boaters tie up there.
Ice was forming in the marina in December, though into the second week of January, the harbour has yet to freeze.
