Here's the alleyway between Custom House Wharf and Portland Pier. If you can stand the smell, there's always something to take a look at around here. It's a favorite vantage spot of mine, when I'm venturing off Commercial. With the amount of time I spend down here, you'd think I'd enjoy fishing. One time, I do remember riding my bike down here with Eddie. He had a blast; fishing all day. Me? I don't think I put a line in the water. Spent my day investigating all the 'ins and outs' of the long pier and watching all the harbor traffic. At the end of the afternoon, I was dead tired and barely survived the bike ride home. Fly fishing up north with loads of black flies, fishing shows on TV with funny hosts, the excitement of risking your life off the Grand Banks? I guess I'll NEVER get it!
