Rockport, ME...

Today I arrived in Rockport, ME after a long day in the air and not much time sitting In airports. The last flight of the day was a twin engined Cessna with a wonderful view of the Maine coast. Tomorrow I hope my luggage shows up. In any case, I'll find the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship and know something about the lay of the land before classes start on Monday. I've already found the grocery store.

Tell me dear readers, What do you think?To compare and contrast, in this month's Wooden Boat Magazine, there is an article about the fishing fleet of Mumbai, India. These vessels are not art in the way of Bugattis. They are not made for the pleasure of a wealthy elite, but rather to provide a living and a source of protein for 12,000,0000 people. There is a saying, let me live simply that others may simply live. Long live the makers of beauty. The photo below is of the article in Woden Boat that I hope others will read and enjoy as well.

Make, fix and create...

Rockport's a gorgeous stretch of either & I found the Center jaw-dropping when I toured a few years ago. I've been looking for an excuse to go back ever since!

Enjoy your travels!

Those wooden fishing boats in India were designed and made in response to local water and weather conditions. They are working boats, which maybe aren't fancy, but they sure teach us a lot.
