Boathouse. Elaborate and whimsical Victorian structure on the Talley property, the “folly” of Talley’s Folly. The boathouse was built by Sally’s Uncle Whistler, who also built the town’s bandstand. The folly is not only the setting for Sally and Matt’s encounters, but also a representation of what Matt asks Sally to do: to dare to create something unusual and dreamlike in a town that does not understand such things. The fact that Sally is the only member of her family who still visits the boathouse makes it possible for her to meet Matt there undetected, and shows that she is unlike the rest of her family in being able to appreciate the structure’s quirky beauty.
