    This is one of my favorite buildings in the Seaport. It's a life saving station, one of many which were located at intervals along the Atlantic coast. A permanent crew would have lived here, sometimes for months on end.. There would have probably been a horse to pull a surfboat down the beach. They'd have been equipped with the latest lifesaving equipment, breeches buoy, a mortar to shoot a line across the surf. Regular patrols were taken up and down the beach, in all weather, to look out for vessels in distress.

    The building itself is a riot of detail and is a testament to a time when even a purely utilitarian building was considered worthy of satisfying aesthetic design.





    The fly rafters are stop chamfered between the braces. It's just a little thing, but it was considered worth doing, and it does add to the whole..

    I was as enchanted by the buildings as by the boats. I took a few photos of the same building, noting the same. The lovely details added for no real purpose. Just beauty for the sake of beauty, in the form of nicely finished details.

    As aesthetic I aspire to in my life.

    There are some more. I took a bunch of snapshots with the intent to use them to draw from. Some are simply the beautiful grounds of the Seaport Museum itself, but most are boats, or boat adjacent. Haha.

    Itís a treat to Doodle these out and share them.
