Sunny Windjammer Morning

Good morning everyone. We had a good sail yesterday. All down wind,
all day long, in the fog. This wasn't one of those "thick as the
hair on a dog" fogs. We had about a half mile visibility all day
which is quite good by Maine fog standards. Not being gluttons for
punishment we anchored around 1530 and went for walks ashore here at
Fort Point 27 miles from Camden. Last night we had a sing along in
the main cabin.

This morning the sun is shining bright and the light NW wind promises
to carry us out of the river. We had numerous swimmers here this
morning. I can here the excitement up on deck right now. As I like
to say, the water is as breathtaking as the scenery. The foliage
here in Fort Point Cove is turning. The loons are singing. I think
it is going to be another good windjammer day.

Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
A special good morning from Victor Hatherly who, along with his lovely wife, is enduring another


  1. It was with sadness that I read of the passing of Mary Day Hawkins. I never saw her in person, but I am sure her spirit will live on in the Schooner Mary Day and all that are part of her.
    You spoke of a Mr. Hatherly in the current blog. I seem to remember him from a previous trip. It may not be the same one, the Mr. Hatherly of my acquantance is missing a thumb. We were mutual friends of the famous inventor Von Herder, who was blinded during an experiment to develop dehydrated water.

  2. The dehydrated water remains an ambitious goal. I have heard of a Von Herder who, during his days as a blind gunsmith, had perfected an almost silent air rifle. Could this be the same person?

  3. Now that you’ve added the picture of Mr. Hatherley I do seem to remember him from the recent cruise. However, in the photo he appears to be impersonating a schooner captain. Was he traveling incognito?
