This wonderful old wash house has probably seen more laundry on this island than I would care to do! I also know how hard it was to keep clothes laundered with the primitive facilities of the hand pump, homemade detergents, wash boards, and the heat of the summer, as well. I often think about the smell of clothes in days gone by here on the island, the clothes must have been scented with fish and stale cigarettes!
So, as I use this newly restored space, I have already christened it this summer with many writing projects, singing and dancing as well.
Thank you Philip for this wonderful gift!
