Scenery: Lobster Boat in Winter (Maine)

I snapped this pic of my friend's dad's first and last lobster boat, the Jackie Marie, up for sale down by the road. His very first lobster boat as a young man, he bought her back after 35 years and fully restored her to her original beauty so he could finish his career out in the same boat that had given him his start so many years ago.


Now in his 70s, poor health recently forced this rugged yet sentimental old Maine lobsterman into retirement, and he had to sell the boat once more, this time for the last time.

Wonderful! Fishermen are a special breed. Thumbs up for your friend's dad, and may he enjoy his well-deserved retirement.

This is my dad's boat. I am Kim's oldest sister. I have many memories on this boat, Madeline (Toothaker) M.
