    My Heavens!!!  I remember when she was launched!  Now I feel old!!!  Congratulations to Mary Day and all the sailors who have manned her over the years.  She’s become a true symbol of life in coastal Maine, The Way it Ought to Be!

    The Mary Day is one of the schooners that my Mother and Father used to do the laundry for.  We would pick it up on Sunday night. Monday we washed all the sheets and pillow cases and hung them on the line to dry.. Tuesday we ironed the sheets and pillow cases. Wed. we washed all the bath towels, hand towels and facecloths and dried them in the dryer to keep them soft. Thursday we finished up with washing the dishtowels, aprons potholders etc., and then packed it all back up and delivered it by Friday.  This was only one of a handful of schooners that my parents washed the laundry for.  Those were the day.  The owners were the nicest people to my parents.  Good memories of the summers.

  • congrats to the Mary Day – for the record the lighthouse looks to me more like the one on Isle au Haut than the one at port clyde…

  • The lighthouse shown in the picture is Robinson Point light on Isle Au Haut, not Marshall Point Light

    My mother worked on her when she was 17 years old for the summer back in the day – came up here from Connecticut to work on her.  Lots of memories for her.
