Greetings from New Castle, New Hampshire
It's 6:30 a.m. Moments before dawn. In the distance, the stout figure of Whaleback Light begins to take shape. A few minutes from now, this stretch of shore—Great Island Common—will flood with golden sunlight. Sailboat captains, both novice and pro, will cut through the cobalt waves that form the border between Maine and New Hampshire. Deep-sea fishing vessels and isle-hopping cruise ships will make their way to open water, and there will be an excited hum of travelers on the dock here in the smallest town in New Hampshire. But for now, all is quiet. Another day on the water is about to begin.
