A Buckettripper blog post written by Karen Berger details her summer experiences aboard the schooner Timberwind on Penobscot Bay.
I am sitting on Warren Island in Maine’s Penobscot Bay, watching a mountain of lobsters cooking over an open fire. Bob Tassi—ship captain, Grammy-award winning recording engineer, and musician—is playing songs written by his grandfather on the accordion. In the protected waters to the east of the island, the schooner Timberwind, a national historic landmark, rocks gently on the almost glassy waters of a perfect August evening. I hear the music of the accordion, the sound of quiet conversations, the crackling of the fire, laughter. No video game noises. No TVs. No cell phones. No sports drone in the background. No traffic.
