Yesterday, I shared an image captured from Riverhead beach focusing on the Town class boats with their vibrant hulls and the harbor beyond. Prior to capturing the Townies from that angle, I had sought out this composition from Red Steps. As vibrant as their hulls are, it’s really hard to get a good angle on these boats from publicly accessible spots.
When I posted, I also had forgotten the class of boats and a friend helpfully answered that they were Town class (or Townies) but that she and her daughters had taken to calling them Skittles due to their brightly colored hulls. So, for Erica (whom we have known since shortly after moving to Marblehead in 2008), I present Townies – ‘Taste the Rainbow’
