Fairhaven by the Sea is a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle based on the artwork of famed master painter Charles Wysocki. In this puzzle, The Nantucket, a sidewheel steamboat, slowly floats past the dock at a wharf near Cape Cod. Beginning at the end of the nineteenth century, The Nantucket operated as a ferry serving the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. As kites fly high above The Wharf Rats Pub and Barney’s Crab Shack, white fluffy clouds breeze by. It is a picture-perfect autumn day by the sea.
For more than 40 years Charles Wysocki enjoyed his love affair with life and Americana, and through his imaginative and colorful artwork, touched the hearts of millions worldwide. "Chuck" felt a special kinship with puzzlers who share in the creative process by building his paintings one piece at a time.
Every Buffalo Games jigsaw puzzle is manufactured in the U.S.A. from recycled puzzle board. A precision cutting technique guarantees that every piece will fit soundly with the company's signature Perfect SnapTM. A bonus puzzle poster is also included so that you have a handy reference of what the completed puzzle should look like while you put yours together.
Those Infernal Kites

I love the inclusion of this image in Buffalo's catalog and I appreciate the need to alter some of Wysocki's paintings to make it more puzzle-friendly. However, the inclusion of the random kites ruins it for me; you'll find them in this puzzle, "Dahlia Makes a Dory Deal", and their new Nantucket puzzle. I find them unnecessary and a little insulting - do we really need to "fix" sky pieces in puzzles? I hope this isn't a trend that continues in BG's Wysocki puzzles.
