On Mount Desert Island in Maine, where Acadia National Park is there is a hidden cove. This small harbor is a lobstermen haven. Bass Harbor is authentic Maine with hard working sailors that work the lobster traps so that we can enjoy those delicacies.
Arriving in the harbor during the fog, a memorial to those lost at sea stand tribute to the courage of these men and women.
In spite of the risks, these lobstermen are hearty on the water. Even in the fog, they begin the preparations for getting underway.
The Bass Harbor Lighthouse stands true and strong. Signaling bright to show the way for the sailors.
|THE SAILOR’S LAMENT|
ON A SAILOR’S GRAVE, NO ROSES GROW, NO GRASS, NO STONE TO SHOW
HE SALLIED FORTH WHILE YOUNG AT HEART TO SAIL UPON THE SEA
