Dispatches from the Cabin: Part Nine

We're back home from Islesford. Back to my 10' by 7' study--the "Treehouse"--looking out to the yard and across Birch Lane to the woods beyond.

On the wall to the left of my desk, there are two watercolors by Nat. Both are of Islesford. One pictures the row of boathouses on Sandy Beach at Hadlock Cove. The other is a view from the cabin on Bayberry Point, looking through the garden gate down to the shore and across to Cadillac Mountain. It was made on September 6, 2000.

The trees have since grown up and obscure the view. They'll be thinned out this winter and next summer the scene will be more akin to Nat's watercolor.

Meanwhile, the island--and Nat--will be with me through the intervening months. Photo: Nat Bowditch watercolor, Cranberry point, Islesford.
