As this is being written, I occasionally look up and into a beautiful, clear morning of blue sky, blue water, and greening landscape. Yesterday was different. We were shrouded in dense fog and steady rain. But those two weather pals can create their own beauty, especially in one of our four harbors.

This image, taken yesterday, is of one of the first sailboats that have reappeared. She’s at Center Harbor, home of the Brooklin Boatyard and the Center Harbor Yacht Club. Great Cove is the harbor for WoodenBoat School’s fleet and many visiting sailboats, including tourist schooners. Sailboats also moor in the Benjamin River, home of the Benjamin River Marine boatyard.

Our fourth harbor, picturesque Naskeag Harbor, primarily is a working harbor for lobster and scallop boats. (Brooklin, Maine)
