The Montague

For my brother Jack, featuring our father’s vintage charts, full of memories of our childhood cruising haunts: Montague Harbour, Active Pass, Prevost Island, Wallace Island, Pirate’s cove, Porlier Pass, Blackberry Point and Spotlight Cove. The found objects are nautical items that belonged to our father: vintage key fobs of propeller and an anchor and his power squadron pin from when he was the Commander of the local group. We were fortunate indeed.
