James A. Smith
Sally and Jim Smith met in college and married in Georgetown in 1959. Jim graduated from Columbia Law School in 1961 and immediately joined Squire, Sanders & Dempsey headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio. Jim became a partner in the firm, specializing as a trial lawyer in complex corporate, banking and securities litigation. In the meantime, the Smith family became four, with the addition of Hugh and Sarah.
The Smths discovered Maine in 1969. We rented in the Boothbay Harbor region and came to think of Boothbay Harbor as our summer hometown. After years of renting summer cottages in the early 1980s, we started to look for our own cottage. When we first saw Moot Point in the fall of 1982, it was love at first sight. Since purchasing Moot Point, we have been improving it. After Jim retired in 1994, we started spending every summer at Moot Point. In 2008, we built a second cottage on the other side of Appalachee Road, and since that time, we have rented Moot Point when Hugh or Sarah and their families are not using it.
After looking at dozens of places, our Boothbay Harbor real estate agent drove us to Appalachee Shores. She stopped the car near the entrance - so that we could see Appalachee Pond in all its glory. Hundreds of various colored water lilies were in full bloom, like a Monet painting. When we got to the cabin, my breath was taken away. The shining wood beams and the massive stone fireplace presented an interior that was warm and welcoming. The view of Linekin Bay - just yards below us - was thrilling, more beautiful than we dreamed possible. And to be able to walk down our own path to our private dock and float meant that we could really be a part of Linekin Bay. Which turned out to be true. Over the years, at night we would go down to the float and lie on our backs. On a clear night we would watch the stars shoot across the dark, dark sky.
