Please don't ask.
If you're familiar with the wharfs off of Commercial Street you probably know Harbor Fish Market on Custom House Wharf and the restaurant J's Oyster on Portland Pier. They are right next to each other and this is the water between. On most summer afternoons this view is saturated with lobster boats, trawlers and tourists capturing this picturesque venue that just screams forth "Maine: Then Way Life Should Be". This image from yesterday shows the waterway getting pretty iced in.
Life isn't always pretty.
But it's what we have.
Winter along the water's edge: this is home.
