My father’s Boatbuilding Shop in Maine…

Over the holidays Keith and I visited my parents in Maine, it was wonderful, there was enough snow to go sledding!  One of my favorite things, however, was getting to visit my father’s new place of employment.  We grew up in Georgia (Savannah) where he worked for a paper company, but he’s always longed to get back to his original dream carreer– being a boatbuilder.  Once we kids were all out of the nest my parents moved back up to  Maine where they were married and living (very modestly, as my father was working as an apprentice to learn wooden sailboat building) when I was born.   Since moving up to Maine he’s gotten certified in all sorts of boat-fixing and maintenance, and sure enough got a great job where he is now building boats again!  I was so thrilled to see where he works as I can tell how happy it’s making him to be doing this work.  Here are some of my favorite shots:

Hey thanks, Sarah! You make me look good!

I’ve linked your blog in the Woodenboat Forum and viewers there have been admiring your photographic skills and range of interests. One even offered to give the woman on the carousel lessons in how to ride side-saddle ;>

Best to Keith,

Daddy/Dave
