Our great-grandfather, Joshua Dill, built the Mooring in 1898. Sited at the head of Linekin Bay, this spacious cottage
is a fine example of the shingle style vacation homes Bostoners favored at the turn of the century. From the wrap around
porch you can observe the non-stop activity on Linekin Bay from dawn to dusk. At dawn the lobstermen are on the early morning
stillness of the bay, pulling traps to the accompaniment of noisy gulls. After breakfast, boaters head out to their favorite
island for a picnic, or for lunch in Boothbay Harbor at the Lobsterman's Co-op. As the breeze picks up, sailors rig their
boats and tack out of the bay. Kayakers explore every inlet and cove, while wave boarders court disaster on the choppy waters.
Toddlers splash and play on the public beach, and the public float is a hub of swimming and boating activity. Toward sunset,
vacationers make their way back down the bay, and preparations begin for a drink on the porch followed, perhaps, by a clambake
on the rocks. Osprey work the quiet waters, diving on unsuspecting mackerel to bring home to hatchlings in their nest. No
day is complete without a quiet moment on the porch, observing the moon reflected on the dark waters of Linekin Bay.
