The "Puffin" runs aground
Whoops! The strong and shifting winds in recent days may have caused a sailboat to be stranded on a sand bar in Lemon Bay just south of the Tom Adams Bridge on the western side of the channel.
The name of the sailboat, the Puffin, is appropriate since that is a northern seabird that spends all its time at sea, only returning to land to breed. Maybe an especially high tide will enable the mariner to get back into deep water.
Another reminder that all that water out there in the bay is not always navigable and windy days make it harder to see the bottom.
