The Captain’s House

“I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity.”

Albert Einstein

The story behind the photo: This property lines Ocean Avenue in Cape Arundel, Maine, in the Summer Colony Historic District – just a bit down the road from the Bush Compound. Coming just around a bend I was greeted by this cool looking house sitting just above the rocky crags. I’ve heard tales that it was built by a prosperous sea captain back in the day and chose the location to retire. I mean, if that was me I’d do it too. I can only imagine what looking out into the sea from the back of this wonderful manse must be like.
