Here on Seguin we hear wonderful things about Damariscove and the caretakers there. It’s not in the cards for us to actually visit there, but we enjoy seeing it every day from a distance. One day, sailors Julia and John came up the Seguin Lighthouse Trail with a care package from their last stop, Damariscove. Together we opened a warm note from the Damariscove keepers Aiko and Scott, along with a foiled bundle of wild blueberries. What a prize!
A few days later some boaters on Seguin told us they were heading for Damariscove. They cheerfully offered to deliver our note and fresh lettuce from Seguin’s garden to Aiko and Scott.
It’s downright delightful to connect through this volunteer courier service. In addition to the blueberries and lettuce, at this point grapes, licorice, and zucchini have all changed hands this way. Thank you Aiko and Scott for initiating, and to all the mariners who further energize the joy of connection.
