Painted plein air from the boat deck of “Victory”. In fact, that is “Victory’s” stern line attached to those old pilings. Named “Creosote Cove” by the local pirates, this secret harbor was where many of the fleet hung out during the winter. The railroad embankment provided some shelter, but the harbor is mostly unprotected from wind and large wakes. We got beat by the wind a few times. It was ideal for boats on the hook because the shore and bottoms were condemned as a toxic superfund.
High lead levels remain from the old creosote factory that used to be here. That sign on the tree is a high lead warning to stay out. This kept most of the public away from the zone, save for the occasional paintball battles. The “pirates”, however, had a key to the gate.
