Steve Ewing is one of my favorite Edgartonians. Steve and I go way back, to the days when he and his three brothers lived across the street and up the block in what was formerly the Emmulous Elliot house; the days when the Ewing boys, the Nevin kids, and I reigned terror upon the Main Street/Pease's Point Way neighborhood. Steve is a husband, father, friend, story-teller, water man (just for openers), and owns the very successful Aquamarine Dockbuilders, a company that has 600 accounts between Gay Head and Chappaquiddick.
Steve is pictured here at the Reading Room parking lot, Aquamarine's base of operations and Steve's home away from home. In the background is Steve's catboat, the Ocmulgee (as in the river in Georgia).
Steve is also Edgartown's Poet Laureate, a position that carries the responsibility of composing and then reading a poem at our annual town meeting, This link will take you to Steve's poem, To a Shucker.
