Things seen today while lounging in the grass at Fort Allen Park:
  • An osprey headed west, possibly to one of the nests near the Coast Guard base or the Casco Bay Bridge, and carrying a fish in its talons
  • The Java Sea oil barge (which has been here since Thursday), swinging on its mooring near Little Diamond Island
  • The Baltic Captain I arriving in harbor, and a smaller barge docking alongside (presumably in order to take on bunker fuels)
  • Wild strawberry (fragaria virginiana) blooming in the mown grass
