1999. Vickie, "Harry", Josh, and the purported "captain". Jenny taking the photo.
"During our short meal the matter was discussed. One proposed
refusing to work, but that was mutiny and of course was rejected at
once."........"The captain is lord paramount. He stands no watch,
comes and goes when he pleases, is accountable to no one, and
must be obeyed in everything."
Richard Dana, Two Years Before the Mast

Friend "L" on strike, she taking a nap on
couch headed to the boathouse for

Dinghy at lo tide in Winter Harbor loaded with soon to
be short-lived fruit trees for transport out to Whaler on
mooring, and thence to Mark Island.
Harry (Josh and Vickie's dog),

Outhouse (left) already needs work again.
Because the peat had washed away over many

photo, siding being scraped before re-staining.
Jenny talking with Bryan Gerrish who
was re-flashing the tops of the house's
windows. As we ate lunch one day, a
bald eagle flew over, not more than 20
feet above our heads, and loosed a
huge feather which floated down onto
24" x 48"
