Around the island ... Capt. Barrington

It was very cold in Oak Harbor the other day, and some kind person put a wool cap on Capt. Barrington's cold bronze head!

Captain Barrington was a Nova Scotia seaman, a Whidbey Island pioneer in the 1850s.

The hat reads, "Little Cutie." I'm sure he would be appalled to see this, and is probably turning in his grave!
