Remember the Time… – Race Week Fun 2014

The actual race started out well and then drifted to a lumpy sea at the end, but man did we have fun. The entertainment began the night before with the small boat races. There were two categories- rowing and sailing.  Oh, and a prize for the crew members who made the biggest fools of themselves.  […]

Canning Pear Nectar

This fall, I was the surprised recipient of a beautiful bushel of pears from what we think is a Seckle Pear tree. That gift, however, did not come co-bundled with an abundance of time. I was determined that this gift would not sit too long while I put it off until the pears were passed […]

Sailing Our Tiny Schooner

Because our fall was so incredibly warm, we were able to take Iolaire, our cute new schooner, out for a test drive before we put her away for the winter.  The day was our last gorgeous, warm, fall day.  At first when she heeled, I had this instinctive reaction of a little clench in my […]

Merry Christmas to All!

 

Welcome to Our Fleet, Schooner Timberwind!

Merry Christmas to us! All summer long Jon and I could see the Schooner Timberwind from the deck of the Riggin.  We would say to each other that someone should buy that boat.  She’s so pretty.  She deserves a new life.  But when we said “someone” we were NOT meaning us. However, life had other […]

Eco-Friendly, Green and Local – What’s Next?

As a food writer and business owner I’m constantly challenged by what the next new idea is. It used to be that we were on the leading edge of things. We were one of the first 50 businesses in Maine to receive the Leadership in Hospitality award from the Department of Environmental Protection. Our “It’s […]

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 […]

Remember the time…

Remember the time when most of the people in this picture were NOT married?  Johnny (red shirt) and Andy (kneeling by the kettle) are both married to wonderful women and live in New York City.  Chris (blue shirt second from the left) is also in New York City.  All are working and supporting themselves in […]

Remember the time…

Remember the time when you were so little that your cheeks were still chubby and you still took naps?  I think this was the day that you went to pick blueberries in the center of the island and just plunked yourself down in a the center of a patch, eating more than you saved in […]
