    Pier 3 to Fairhaven. A ride along Pier 3 - Fisherman's Wharf, viewing the fishing boats and activities getting back to some kind of normal. New Bedford Harbor and a packed Pope Park was bustling as this time of year should be. Watch a large seafood tractor trailer truck backup to let me pass at 4:00 minute mark. A fantastic weather period continues into next week. MLBaron video for westislandweather.com

    *ML's Note: Our webcam at Town Beach stops scanning the horizon about this time of day when darkness settles in. It was fixed for the last hour to this exact position and captured the dramatic fire at Salter's Point , 7 miles across the bay from West Island. The 42 minute clip started at 418 PM Nov 7, 2019 and was sped up to 10X speed. An unoccupied summer cottage fully-involved in fire at 70 Naushon Ave - Salter's Point in Dartmouth was visible 7 miles away from the town beach weather station webcam at West Island, Thursday evening at 454 PM. November 7, 2019. The owners were listed from Medfield, MA. The 6-bedroom waterfront house, built in 1910, was valued at $1,500,000. The 2-Alarm blaze was confined to one structure as the wind gusting to 22 knots out of the west whipped the flames. 2 nearby houses were scorched but saved by the Dartmouth Fire Dept. No injuries were reported. Webcam video from Town Beach for westislandweather.com

    Sunrise at West Island Town Beach - Christmas Day 2015. Music by Libera: Wexford Carol. Enter full screen for nicest viewing. *ML's Note: A wave almost took out the camera set at low level, less than 8 inches above the sand. Even though seaweed and saltwater made it to the tripod, just inches from the camera, somehow it survived and this video was made possible. Video by MLBaron for westislandweather.com

    FAIRHAVEN - The FISHING VESSEL "GENESIS" ran hard-aground off Fort Phoenix, Fairhaven MA. According to the captain - the 65ft fishing vessel, outbound - lost the auto-pilot steering and the vessel veered into the treacherous rock area near the outbound channel of New Bedford's outer harbor known as Egg Island. The grounding occurred about 7AM November 4, 2018. The Fairhaven Harbormaster along with other marine rescue assets responded to the scene. There were no injuries and the crew remained on board. The ROY BOY tug arrived on the scene for a commercial tow/salvage operation. The vessels were waiting for high tide at the time of this taping. MLBaron video for http://www.westislandweather.com

    Captain Hoppy Hobson on the bow, directed Captain Sakwa at the helm as they guided his lobster boat onto a boat trailer at Hoppy's Landing for routine maitenance. The winter season took it's toll with lots of ice surrounding his boat. "The hull was scraped up pretty good from the chunks of ice this season." Sakwa said. The boat was transported by Bayline Marine to his Farmfield St home. Captain Sakwa services his boat from stem to stern himself. When asked how long it would take for the boat to get back in service, he snapped with a grin "How do I know? When it gets done it gets done." A predictable answer from this old sea dog at Hoppy's Landing. MLBaron video for westislandweather.com How bad was the ice? See this clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s97Z7CV1Hqk

  • Fairhaven Center Cushman Park

    Cushman Park - Fairhaven Center, Route 6 and more. Officer Richard Claflin was probably the first in the region to initiate a dash cam in his cruiser in 1983. He taped every street in the Town Of Fairhaven in the fall of 1983. He did this to document what Fairhaven streets were like for other to see someday. Over 30 years later, the clips have been transferred and digitized in several 9 minute segments. All sections in town were covered. Original police calls can be heard on the cruisers radio. For those who weren't around town back then, I caution this is as boring as watching paint dry. But if you were around, the footage may show someone you knew, a familiar car or house or maybe even yourself. Guess where the clips were taken! MLBaron Historic Archives.

    A mysterious halo (at 0 :28 sec.) appeared in a drifting early morning fog bank that passed across Buzzards Bay and West Island, Monday, August 28, 2017 at 630AM. The ghost rainbow appeared several times and eventually disappeared as the bank moved away. This clip was originally rejected, but after this discovery, I decided to post this little rainbow that appeared in a complete circle., which they all do. The water droplets in the fog with the sun angle at the right place and time with the camera made this fogbow visible only at this spot. The angle of the sun has to be between 30 and 40 degrees from the anti-solar point. The fogbows are also called white rainbows, cloudbows, or ghost rainbows.
