trouvée: the schooner

This photograph is not inscribed. However, I am told it was taken on Owl's Head, Maine, in the summer of 1892. It is hard to believe this little scene was captured more than 100 years old, it seems so fresh. Ahhhh. . . some things never change. {click to view larger}

The gentleman and I are off to Maine early tomorrow morning. We will pick up my niece and nephew along the way, experienced beachcombers both.

Oh happy summer!

See you in a week. . .
