Uplifting DocksideA crane performing off-season work at the URI Bay Campus in Narragansett, Rhode Island.
It's late winter. The trees are bare. The moorings are devoid of watercraft. The docks and piers are empty. That means that there is work to do.
Barges and cranes brought in for the off-season to work. To build. To repair. To construct. This is the time that we see this type of activity. This is to say, that this activity, this work often goes unseen.
We should see this type of work. We should appreciate what this activity accomplishes. This work enables other maritime activity. This work enables learning and education. This work makes the boating season possible. We should see it. We should respect it. It is a beautiful and creative aesthetic.
