Some Photographs, Finally

by sara rose

I just came in from my first 6-day trip on the Schooner Mercantile.  It was a long week and I’m feeling pretty tired on this beautiful Sunday afternoon.  I’m including here a bunch of photos from my first few trips.

A glorious surprise day off a week or so ago found several of us hanging out on Curtis Island drinking gin and tonics, philosophizing on life and enjoying the view . . .

The Mercantile and her Captain, Andy, as he took me ashore to set up the lobster bake. To the left, there was a bald eagle perched in the tree.

Lobsters are called “bugs” around these parts. So, freshly steamed bugs and corn on the cob.

Image

According to Captain Andy, “the best lobster bake yet!”

Lunch aboard the Schooner Mercantile: Vegetable Beef Soup, Green Salad, Irish Soda Bread and Peanut Butter Cookies

Sunset from the stern of the boat somewhere near Cradle Cove. There was a thunderstorm looming on the horizon.
