Brandon + Sarah • 12/13/12 • I found out early last year from Sarah that the Brandon was building his own fishing boat and today I get to be there for its maiden voyage! ⚓️🛥 p.s. @sarahhale3 @wymanbrandon we have the best luck with winter weather!
“I just went at it. I’ve always been on the water. I’ve never been on shore really. I went sword-fishing on Grand Banks...done all kinds of foolish stuff.” - Charlie, swordfisherman Charlie is going to be featured in the 2018 Maine State Photography Competition!
“These are the swordfish hooks we used. We can’t use those anymore though. Those new God darn things don’t catch fish as good as these things.” - Charlie, Grand Banks swordfisherman
Good day for an icy hike.

Tomorrow is a big day for F/V Family Condition!
“I started fishing when I was living on Isle au Haut. My dad came in from a trip, he was going into the mainland to buy stuff. He bought me a brand new trap to fish when I was five. It’s fun, except I can’t stand the smell of the bait he uses, skates. The fresh ones smell horrid, but the old ones lose the smell. So then he usually does four of them, that’s the only bait that works 80 miles off, bony fish, because fish that have tiny bones don’t last because slime eels eat them. So my dad caught one once (a slime eel) and he brought it home for me to bring to preschool.” - Tanner, age 8
“My favorite part is unloading the lobsters. It’s a surprise. You never know how many pounds. The more pounds, the bigger my check is.” -Tanner, age 8

My love affair with winter ocean continues.
HAPPY FRIDAY! (Read the story - link in profile!)
The first time I met Tanner, he was hauling traps in his skiff near the wharf and the skiff caught on a ledge. I asked him if he was stuck and he said, “The tide’s coming so I won’t be stuck for long.” And, for some reason, I loved that moment and the way he chose his words and the fact that he’s eight years old and I think that’s my new life philosophy.
“When I grow up, I want to lobster. That’s what my dream has been. It’s fun for me. Some people just fish for the money. I don’t do that. I like to fish. I like to have the gulls chasing us. It’s fun because they’re trying to land on the boat and steal the bait.” - Tanner, age 8.
Wonderful to see our work featured in Seacoast Weddings’ 2018 issue!!! Eliza + Tim were one of the coolest couples 😎 who gave us a lot of artistic freedom to translate their vision for the day. A big thanks to all the awesome vendors involved. Well done! #weddingflowers #maine #maineweddings #prettyflowers #maineflorist #brunswickmaine #prettyinpink #mainewedding #harpswell #seacoast
Giant's Stairs by @appletonimages "For dramatic coastal scenery in Harpswell, nothing beats the Giant’s Stairs. Named for its interesting geologic history, the Giant’s Stairs trail follows the rocky coastline with gorgeous views of eastern Casco Bay, often with crashing waves glinting in the sunlight. On any given day you might see rafts of ducks, foraging harbor seals, or a lobster boat hauling traps. The Giant's Stairs trail and property is owned and maintained by the Town of Harpswell. In 1910 the 2.5-acre strip of coastal land was deeded to the Town by Captain William Henry Sinnett, a lifelong resident of Bailey Island. Historically there was a narrow foot path filled with poison ivy that led to the monument and beautiful views, but in 2008 with a Maine Recreation Trail Grant, the Maine Conservation Corps and various Town committees and community members, the rustic 700-foot path was resurfaced, widened, and stabilized. The remaining 700 feet of trail runs across the rocky ledges where you can find a small rocky beach, Pinnacle Rock, and "Thunder Hole." Please be sure to follow the red blazes along the rocks to stay on Town property. The rock formations here are a geologist’s dream, but even a layman can appreciate the gigantic forces that shaped this coastline going back 500 million years. Layers of mud formed the original sedimentary rock, along with deposits of minerals that later crystallized into quartz and garnet. Movements in the Earth’s crust pushed the rock layers upward, causing massive buckling and cracking. Gradually, hot magma from deep below the surface flowed into one large crack and formed a vertical seam of dark basalt rock, known to scientists as an “intrusive volcanic dike." http://www.harpswell.maine.gov/index.asp?SEC=79733FB6-583F-486C-AB5A-904B5747C989&Type=B_LOC #maine_state_parks #harpswell #publicland #maine #maineigers #ignewengland #hikemaine #mainecoast

When the Times Record does a story on you and asks for a picture, and you awkwardly realize you only have selfies....Back to the cove where Due North came to life!
“When I moved here, I was 12. The first day we were unpacking the U-haul, the kids next door brought me down here with slingshots, trying to shoot some sea gulls, and then everything we did was around the water. I’ve been fishing for thirty years and I still like it.” - Shane
The secret to surviving winter in Maine is to find a place in the sun and out of the wind. And don’t move from that spot. Ever.
2:04 Eyes open. I had forgotten. That’s right, tonight, the moon is quite special. I wake and open the door to the snap of the full night. Deep blue light everywhere. Eyes down to the road. He is standing there staring back at me as if to say hello. The fox. A long black silhouette. A moving shadow against pale snow.
I’ve been back in the UK for nearly a month with so many fun travels planned to begin in just a couple weeks. But I’ll always miss home♥️ . . . . . #maine #visitmaine #newengland #harpswell #islandlife #islandgirl #ocean #seaside #beautifuldestinations #getoutside #saltwatertherapy #nature #home #homesweethome #homeiswheretheheartis #thegoodlife #thewaylifeshouldbe #instagood
Love the mural, love the loft behind the mural. Pretty sure I could live here.
Gorgeous workshop, complete with woodstove. Filled with children on Sunday afternoons, as part of an educational boatbuilding program started by Ann.
“My grandfather was very sea-going...he grew up on the South Shore of Boston, in Cohasset. I feel like I have the sea in my blood. Growing up in the Midwest, I gravitated toward Maine. There’s just something about being on the water. It doesn’t matter if it’s a paddleboard or an 83 year old sailboat, I just love being on the water.” -Ann Flannery, boatbuilder
“Wooden boatbuilding is alive and well in certain areas. I think there will always be wooden boats. It’s like an art....the cool thing about wooden boats is that you can see the bones of the boat.” -Ann Flannery, boatbuilder
Hands that build boats.
