I had the opportunity to do some wandering around Old Town today, so I walked the kids down the lower (eastern) half of King Street. I have always loved the window display of seafood on ice at Fish Market, but have yet to take a photo there that I really like.

I got lucky today, and was able to capture a few frames of oyster shucking. I must have looked like a total tourist, but hey, it’s good to blend in that way sometimes!

The Old Town Waterfront is usually bustling with activity, but no more so than on weekends and holidays. This is the time when tourists are abundantĀ and the street performers plentiful.

This particular magician specializes in sleight of hand. As you can see, he had justĀ found a quarter in this young girl’s ear.
