Surprise


When I went to work yesterday afternoon I couldn't find a place to park...almost the whole parking lot in front of the visual arts center was closed off for emergency vehicles due to a fishing boat coming aground on nye beach. And a 50 foot boat with 1600 gallons of diesel fuel is a bit heavy and hard to move! Luckily, they were able to offload the diesel fuel, so an environmental catastrophe was averted, but it's going to be interesting to watch this afternoon to see if they can get her back afloat and off the beach...hey, never a dull moment in nye beach!

added on thursday...she's off the beach and back in the harbor for now...
