On the craggy coast of Maine, there is the small village of Round Pond Harbor, which hosts a small sailing camp. The Sea Skipper Buoy Bell was designed after watching countless hours of campers chase each other around the beloved harbor. The three playful tones are reminiscent of the call back bell (to let the campers know to return to the dock) and the delighted laughter and chatter of the campers skipping a crossed the tiny waves of Round Pond harbor. This 8 inch bell is sure to delight anyone reminiscing about their childhood, or skipping across a small harbor.
Each North Country Wind Bell is based on Jim (founder) and his family’s interpretation of the gong and bell buoys in Maine. Because of the wide variance in their tones, their groupings have resulted in single, double and triple-toned buoy bells.
Every North Country Wind Bell is shaped from quality steel which is over 60% recycled! All steel is a “living finish” and will patina over time, but will play for many years to come. All of North Country’s bells are powder coated with a durable outdoor weathering finish. These characteristics make it ideal for North Country Wind Bells, which are designed to hang outdoors year-round, and will not twist, tangle or break.
Quality materials, fine workmanship and family pride ensure that these rugged bells from North Country Wind Bells will endure for many years to come. Even hung far from the ocean, their response to a gentle breeze carries pleasant reminders of ocean swells and the constant vigil sounded by coastal and harbor bells.
