Sepia Saturday - Going Over the Bar
These rocks were put in place to constrict the out flow of the river which keeps the channel clear of sand and silt. It does work, but it just pushes the problem further out to sea.
When there is an east wind going against a strong outgoing tide it makes for some very treacherous navigation over the "bar" as they call it. It's some of the trickiest navigation on the east coast US.
While boats still go in and out of the harbor, gone are the days of steam tugboats pulling fishing schooners.
