Rebecca’s grandfather owns the marina at the end of Main Street in a small Maine fishing village in the East Penobscot Bay. Lobster boats, day-trippers, and large sailing vessels fill-up at the fuel docks. Her grandfather is a master carpenter and boat-builder, and he’s taught her his craft, as he did her brothers. She’s as skillful as they are, and even studied navigation and marine arts at the Maine Marine Academy in Castine.
Their laughter rings out across the harbor, and their posture suggests a future when she will perhaps take on a caretaker role as he tacks toward his elderly years.
