The sounds (and sights!) of Eastport

Eastport, Maine, sits on Moose Island — just about as far east in the United States you can get. Most of the action takes place around the piers.

There’s a downtown where the fishing boats dock. A five minute drive away, on the Southwest side of the island, commercial cargo ships take advantage of the deepest natural seaport on the continental U.S. Marketplace’s Brendan Willard captured both the sights and sounds of Eastport in action:
