Foreground depicts dirt road curving throughout the left side and rounding out to extend horizontally across the center of the painting to the far right side; water of Mill Pond beyond the road, upon which a small sailboat travels toward the far right side of the picture; horse with single rider grazing on small tufts of grass at the water's edge; man with fishing pole walking away from the viewer along dirt road to left side. Midground to far left shows red barn next to white two-and-a-half story house bounded by picket fence, single trees variously located along the property; adjacent to small intersection of dirt road, beyond which is located a small wharf with docked sailboat; further to right is yellow tidal mill and connected buildings with single-cart cart and driver hauling cargo of white bags along the road towards the right, single man standing along the road outside the mill buildings; path continues towards the right with single-horse cart traveling towards the left on its far right side; moored sailboat in harbor beyond. Background shows panoramic view of the opposite bank (west shore) of Centerport Harbor; various white residential and outbuilding structures scattered throughout forested hillside, one larger yellow structure located in center; view of the water fades back and to the left to meet the horizon line; white clouds populate the light blue sky above.
