We go to the sea. We stand at the shore waiting for the next wave. Truth, we never tire of it. Every wave differs from the next. Every wave is perfect just the way it is…kind of like people. Our Perfect Wave necklace is a symbol of acceptance and the perfection of nature.
You can have it all. This is the gathering, the sweep, the curl, the crest, and the moment the wave speaks. It’s all here in this perfect wave of brilliant blue gems or frothy white diamonds, all set in white. It’s your endless Maine summer to be with you always.
Waves are an eternal fascination for everyone. I live by the shore. I can walk in seven minutes to Portland Headlight, the most photographed lighthouse in the world. Portland Headlight looks out onto Ram Island lighthouse, which is shown in the photograph above.
What you can’t see in the photographs from this day, are the full parking lots and 500 people lining the shores around Portland Headlight who came out to wave watch. Wave watching is an actual sport in Maine. We get notice from the weatherman the day before. The perfect wave is: size, direction, and, although I’ve never heard anyone say this, the perfect wave is also temperature and sunshine. A nice spring, summer, fall day makes for more perfect waves.
Storm out to sea, hazy light, froth and foam, surging seas, pounding surf. The energy of the ocean has a gravity all its own pulling the curious and adventurous to the rocky cliffs to watch.
It’s August, a nice day, storm out to sea, no rain jacket needed. There’s a crowd. Photographers line up with tripods and telephoto lenses. Little kids stay close to parents, they can feel the power and danger. Bigger kids want to get close, to feel the raw energy.
A two-masted schooner passes in front of Ram Island Light at the entrance to Portland Harbor. Waves strike the side of the tower. It’s a great image for the photographers on the cliff.
I think about what it must feel like to be out on the sailboat. Sweeping sea swells, the trough then crest, a slow motion roller coaster. Waves halfway up the light house, wind whipping salt spray, covering lips, coating sunglasses. There’s a damp stickiness to salt spray. Moving with the sea, with the wind, the boat and captain are in harmony with natures force.

Our extended ninety days, for a small business, is almost unheard of. Truth is, we shop for gifts too, and rather than scrambling at the last minute and feeling the tension of time, we like this more relaxed approach. We wish everyone did something like this… it would be a kinder, gentler world.
