Images by Caroline have also adorned the walls at Café Paolina in Swampscott, Mario’s Bar and Grille in Everett, and presently at J. Pace and Son in Saugus. 
Caroline’s love of photography dates back to her preteen years when film cameras were the rage and everyone had an “Instamatic.”

Opening  Reception: August 9 from 4-7 PM

Did You Know? (Islandia off Wonson’s Cove)

Photo by E.J. Lefavour

That the “Islandia” superyacht, designed in Holland by Tony Castro and Peter Sijm, has an overall length of 41.60 meters (136’) by 7.88 meters (just under 26’) in width, and was made using steel for the quickwork and aluminum for the upper works?  Her design prescribes the presence of a bulbous keel with a composite sailing boat that has made it possible to reduce the draft to only 3.5 meters. All the interiors are in mahogany wood, matched with beige color upholstery and furnishings. The large living room, at the center of the boat, extremely bright thanks to the numerous glass surfaces, offers a spacious area with TV and dining table able to accommodate 10 persons. Astern of this room are the three guest staterooms, each with its own bathroom, and the boat owner’s stateroom. This latter stateroom is a true suite, with two large twin beds and a smaller bed, a lounge with an L-shaped sofa, a desk and a wardrobe, and is provided with a bathroom with a separate shower compartment. At the bow of the living room there is a large on-board galley, almost professionally equipped, the crew dining area and their cabins, each with separate shower and bathroom. From this area the crew gains direct access to the deck, to the engine room and to the technical area where all the systems for the correct operation and maintenance of the boat are situated. This allows for a maximum level of privacy.  (Nautica)

Cool little boat to tool around in, wouldn’t you agree?
