Island Window

Just up the street from the main dock at Peaks, this building looks abandoned, but I doubt it. There are plenty lobster buoys, traps, and other sea going paraphernalia around to denote that it's a working building of some consequence.
Trivia Tuesday... Peaks is a far cry from the Hollywood scene, but did you know-
*Hollywood film director, John Ford was known as "The Mayor of Peaks Island" because of his great love of the island. He spent a lot of summers here.
*George M. Cohan tried his productions out at the island's theaters before taking them to the big time on Broadway. Growing up, I couldn't get enough of "Yankee Doodle Dandy".
*Jean Stapleton's first professional appearance in the summer of 1941 was in a production at Greenwood Garden.
I'll dream about 'island life' today... hazy, hot and humid with temps in the 90's. Summer arrives early!

  5. I like looking through both windows to the water and the cedar shingles remind me of my old house on Cape Cod.
    It's New England, the weather will change any minute now, haha!
