Jon Day Sketches


Fisherman's Island Retreats.

Boothbay Harbour, ME

From 1957 to 1990 Bro. Jon Day participated in 16 Retreats on Fisherman's Island

and utilized his artistic gifts to sketch scenes on retreat. We share these cherished sketches for you to enjoy!

The Lighthouse

The east side of the house.

Looking out to the ocean...

At the shore...

Quiet time (2 hours each day) sheltered from the wind.

That same wind lofting the flag of the order!

Savoring a much neeced rest.

A view of the retreat house from the back side.

A sailboat, passing us by.

A distant view of the cabin.

The main entrance, oftern occupied by people communing and sharing the afternoon sunshine and sunsets.

Farewell, Fisherman's Island, and many thanks to the Wilson Family who hosted us there for so many years!

The chalice from which the Brothers and Sisters Shared communion each night.
