Spring Is Here!

The surest sign that spring has arrived is the first boat in the cove. Well, last week the first one went in. Good thing it wasn't the week before, when a nasty spring nor'easter came through. The float that is normally stored up on the Flatiron portion of the wharf floated away in the high tide. I understand that some folks wrestled it off the rocks and tied it up to the light pole just behind us. Glad that wasn't a boat--the last boat to break its mooring in a storm ended up on the rocks and finally was towed out of the cove, never to be repaired.

  • Thanks for your update. I always enjoy seeing what's going on in the cove. I now live in Michigan, but used to fish lobster and dive off the rocks at Lane's Cove.

  • Hello from Hong Kong.
    Enjoyed your comments on the Cove.
    Noticed there is a "Duley" St.
    Does anyone know why it is called Duley St. Was there a Duley family that lived there earlier or had a business there (something to do with boating/fishing??).

    My grandfather was a "Duley" from Ma.
    Best regards,
    Steve
