Reunion Cruise – A Lot Of Love

It is a rare moment in a life when one receives the gift of knowing your personal impact on others. Most days you go about your business, doing your work the best you can with as much grace and joy as you can. Some days you don’t feel like enough. And then a moment comes […]

June Sailing and Maine Wildlife

This has been an amazing couple of weeks for wildlife which has reminded me how much affection I have for sailing during the month of June. The eider ducks have hatched and the non-descript brown feathered mama ducks are leading their flocks of five to seven identical hued ducklings wiggling and scurrying around behind her.  […]

Maine Knitting Cruises

All of our trips are excellent and my favorite is always the one we are currently on.  However, our most recent knitting cruise was memorable for a number of reasons: – The youngest knitter so far – 12 years old – The most number of men knitting (including one who was 16 years old).  Does […]

Can You Guess Now?

Mim is busy knitting away.  If you haven’t yet already guessed, she’s designing a sweater for Jon.  Why is it so huge, you say?  Did Mim have a ‘minor’ measuring catastrophe?  Well, no.  Mim is a knitter extraordinaire.  It’s actually going to be felted, which will make a super warm fabric for those breezy, on […]

Photo Friday – Peregrine Falcon and a Pigeon

Fridays have occasionally been a place for ‘fun photos,’ hence the usual ‘Fun Photo Friday’ title.  What follows is definitely amazing photography, but I’m a little reluctant to call it ‘fun.’  Incredible, gripping, fascinating – yes.  Fun?  Noooot really. This peregrine falcon apparently had little trouble catching it’s prey, a pigeon, this morning on the […]

Schooner Sisters

What would you do if your sister was reading the exact same book you were?  This was our girls’ solution – tilt to the side and both read at the same time. Feeling blessed that they get along so well, Annie
