The sun unzipped the clouds. Mist blew across the harbor.
Platforms and abandoned outbuildings, as seen in 2005.
The blast pit carried the smoke and flame from the rocket motor away from the other base buildings.
From Main Street, looking straight up at the A Mill, only the silence makes one think that nobody’s still inside, grinding grain into Pillsbury’s Best.
