Jen’s Touch

Good morning everyone. Jen doesn’t know that I am about to publish this so don’t tell her. It’ll be our little secret. As any of you who have sailed with us know, Jen has the touch. She doesn’t sail often enough. She wears many hats around this place and is the shore side piece of the puzzle that keeps everything moving. Just the same, her heart is aboard the schooner with the guests and crew. I woke up to find these rocks on the binnacle (the compass housing) on Memorial Day morning after she had returned from her expedition ashore with Colby. Kinda sums up the whole shooting match doesn’t it?

Well there you have have it. We don’t have a cruise this week so we will be tackling a whole pile of projects that we normally wouldn’t have a chance to get to until fall. I hope you are all well.

Have a great day. Be well. Do good.


  1. This is beautiful! I have a lovely book full of heart stones and words appropriate to them. I have a windowsill full of Mary Day Lobster bake beach stones. (what one does is collect if one is midwestern and doesn't do lobsters.) On our July trip I will look for stones to spell – FRIENDSHIP – GRATITUDE – SERENITY – PEACE – and it will be a problem to circle them on the compass. Beware: surely some wiseacre will look for stones to spell ZUCCHINI.

    Thanks, Jen and Barry! –Peggy

  2. Jen's touch is obvious in every single inch of the beautiful Mary Day. She is there even when not physically present. You must have done something right to have been blessed with her for a partner.

    Abrazos 🙂

  3. You are a unique duo and we who know you and sail with you are doubly blessed by the warmth of your caring!


  4. Today, at the public library, I found the Mary Day listed in the book 'Great Sailing Ships of the World' so it seems that she has earned a spot in the annals of history. It is even more exciting to think of the history that she is making even as I write this…and many fond memories for all aboard. Thank you so much for eveerything that you do and the love that you put into it.
