Seeking Shelter From Hurricane Earl

 It was too hot for a long roadie ride, but not at all for  biking to the beach.  I was considering taking a second swim when I noticed a unique ship on the horizon.  It looked like an old English Frigate or a Pirate Ship.  Fortunately the camera was in the handlbar bag and it was a short ride out to the center of the harbor on the hurricane barrier.

The barrier offers safe haven for the local fishing and scallop fleet as well as anyone in need of shelter from a storm.

The closer she got, the more she looked like a pirate ship
