“I spent uncounted hours sitting at the bow looking at the water and the sky, studying each wave, different from the last, seeing how it caught the light, the air, the wind; watching patterns, the sweep of it all, and letting it take me.The sea.” ~Gary Paulsen, Caught by the Sea~
Living on this small island, there are still a few who make their living from the sea. Watching them leave, heading to their fishing grounds…they are a sight to behold…..
….and then we have our clammers and oyster men (we help keep them in business!!!) . There is nothing better than a fresh oyster right out of the bay, except maybe a dozen!
This poor sail boat ran aground Labor Day Weekend 2013….it was left there to be taken by the sea………..by Labor Day 2014 all that was left to be seen was part of its mast.
Last, but not least…the lonely row boat.
I must go down to the sea again, to the lonely sea and the sky.And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by. ~John Masefield~
