Awesome work.

Just a wonderful, heartbreaking essay, Amie. Somehow in a few perfectly chosen words you capture the essence of your mother, your love for her and the emotion and beauty of the scene. A stunning photo too.

I had a boyfriend whose family had a wonderful house on a promontory over Booth Bay Harbor. We took the boat out to Seal Rock. The family has the largest collection of half-hulls anywhere. Now the brothers rent the house out. It is still standing tall. I loved my time there. It is a wonderful place. Greg was the Postmaster of Boothbay Harbor back then
