The year I was born my family built a small cottage on Lake Wentworth in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.
There were six kids, bed bunks, orange life jackets, paddles, pine needles, and lots of smiles.
We spent every summer and most weekends enjoying the lake. We swam, sailed, fished, waterskied, had picnics on Stamp Act beach and so much more.
After hours in the water, our fingertips would get so wrinkled that our mom would make us get out. Briefly we stood wrapped in a towel on the dock in the sun, then jumped back in.
By fifteen, I knew all the islands, markers and shoreline lights so well I could navigate my little red 10 horse Evinrude full speed at night.
Over those years, I fell in love with Wolfeboro and ended up raising my beautiful family there.
When my parents sold “the cottage” things changed, but those fond memories remained.
This nostalgic logo was on the front of my favorite white t-shirt that I wore as a youngster – like the cottage, it too disappeared long ago.
But now I’ve brought my old favorite back to life!
I digitally remastered the design to be an exact replica – same blue, same green, same heron and loon, same pine needles.
Perhaps only a few will remember this design, but it was fun to re-create.
Enjoy your time out on the lake – it’s the best!
