Wounded Lobster

We carry a lobster trap with us on every trip and when there is interest we drop it overnight where ever we anchor. We often catch crabs and star fish and occasionally even catch a lobster. This little guy was too small to keep but I captured a few pictures before we threw him back because he was missing his right claw and some of his little legs but they were growing back.

If you look closely you can see the beginnings of a new claw and little legs.
Pretty amazing!

Fruit Salad

Ask a young man to make a fruit salad and you never know what you're going to get! This is what came out of the galley one morning this summer thanks to Jay's slightly demented but creative mind.

fall flower?

I just took this picture today...a very confused lupine I'd say! We usually see lupine at the beginning of our sailing season, not the end. There is one anchorage in particular where there is a beautiful field of lupine and it's one of my favorites before it gets too crowded later in the season; Pulpit Harbor, North Haven.

Hanging Out on the Jib Boom

We had such fantastic weather this summer! This trip in particular was sunny and hot...we were in the water almost constantly - even when the boat was underway. It was the last week of August and as you can see there was not a lot of wind. I think we had underway swim calls every day where we would toss the life ring in the water, put the swim ladder over, and drift along while cooling off a little. Here 1st Mate Gregory and long-time repeat guest Roy are enjoying just hanging out on the jib boom.

Does anyone from this trip have photos to share of people in the water?

Island Shadow

I took this photo late in the day as we approached an anchorage near Russ Island. This is Sprout Island with Potato Island visible in the distance on the left. The two are connected at low tide by a beautiful crushed shell sand bar. This shadow is as close as I can get to taking a picture of the Evans under full sail!

The Blogger Returns!

Okay, folks, look out! This is your warning...

The schooner is wrapped up for the winter and I am settling in to my winter routine which means...


I'm anxious to share photos and fun from the season and what we are doing to prepare for next season. Who's ready for some blog posts?!?!??!
