Spring has Sprung


Spring perennials make an appearance on the dock.

March 20, the first day of spring, was heralded by the appearance the first perennial buds in the dock planter boxes.

Around Thomas Basin:

  • Work on the Stedman Street sidewalk extension is progressing. We’re all watching to see when we might get our parking back.
  • The logging show has been moved back from the seawall, and Thomas Basin is filled with the sound of heavy equipment landscaping the area.
  • Allen Marine has their first tour boat in place, in preparation for the tour season.
