Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture
Down's got it.
The view was from the Rt. 1 bascule bridge, looking SE toward Mystic River Park, which normally does not allow tie ups longer than 15 minutes--and that's only ahead of a scheduled bridge opening.
This photo was taken just before TS Irene hit the area in 2011. Whenever a major storm threatens, many boats come up the Mystic River for protection from the seas expected. Many of them tie up in this area and sometimes stretch lines across the channel to keep the boats from slamming the docks.
Good job, downeast450; your turn!
