Railroad Bridge from the Cape Side

March started off pretty raw and wet, but 5 days in, the sun finally came back out, although it was still pretty cold and windy.  I drove over to the Cape to take pics of the railroad bridge from that side.  

I've been told these are common eider ducks.  I have never seen them before.

U.S. Army Corp of Engineers tugboat, Manamet.

I was really hoping a train would come by but alas, one did not.

Looking across at Mass Maritime and a whole lotta eider ducks.


  1. I love bridge shots. They're so impressive. The colour of the sky that day was gorgeous.

    Beautiful - it makes me feel like spring has sprung; even if we don't move our clocks 'forward into spring' here until NEXT weekend.

  3. I'd love to see an eider duck! I believe they make the most wonderful un-ducklike rather haunting mewing sound.

  4. I would love to see all those ducks! What a treat it is to have seen all your wonderful photos on the West coast and now the East...thank you for sharing, JoJo! Going to be in the 80's here for the first day of Spring and I can't believe it's still March, LOL.

  5. Beautiful pics as always, me some duckies.

  6. Great photos! I've never had a chance to post about my boy's Science Fair project this year (they took an Honorable Mention) - it was bridge trusses!
    (We loaded up their popsicle-stick models to a maximum of 28 lbs & none of 'em broke)
