Lots of activity in the Thorofare

So, I was snapping a few photos of the Coast Guard servicing the Nun #10 channel marker in the Fox island Thorofare. While watching the new nun being launched, the existing nun’s bottom being scrubbed, figuring the new nun would take its place…when I heard the Marine Patrol (Clam Cops) siren pull over a boat load of clammers and clams. While checking their paperwork, the Coast Guard boat proceeded to tow the new nun through the background of the clam discussion. Not often you see these two activities in one frame. And it left me scratching my head about the new vs old nun’s role in all of this!
