SeacoastOnline: Aboard the M/V Sophie C. tour boat, Anne Nix serves as deck hand, tour guide and ice cream vendor. And from a small closet packed with canvas bags, a scale and other supplies, she runs the nation’s only inland floating post office.
“Even when it rains, you don’t have a bad day on the mail boat. How can you have a bad day when you’re on the mail boat? You just can’t,” said Nix, who has spent each of her 58 summers on Lake Winnipesaukee. She works as a nurse and dietitian in Vermont when she’s not handling postal duties on the lake from mid-June to mid-September.
