A Day in Stage Harbor

Photographer Jay Elliott

Chatham has many waterways that reflect the lifestyles and traditions of an old seaside village. But Stage Harbor and the waterways that connect to it—Mill Pond and Oyster River—exemplify it best. An iconic lighthouse. Old boats and dories bobbing up and down on the rippling water. Old waterfront shanties. Wildlife living peacefully nearby. Photographer Jay Elliott captures a day in the life.
