Thursday afternoon wasn't a good day for boaters or motorists on High Street in Ellsworth!

Traffic at around 3PM came to a standstill as a boat being carried on a trailer was involved in an accident, effectively cutting off High Street.

While tow trucks and police and fire were on the scene attempting to clear up the mess, it took me a half hour to get from in front of Shaw's to in front of Hannaford, a distance of maybe a mile as I was heading to Bar Harbor.

Kudos to all those involved in the cleanup and hopefully no one was hurt in the accident.
