Good morning everyone. Maine has received it fair share of precipitation these last few weeks like much of the rest of New England. Folks inland must be sprouting gills by now. We have been quite lucky managing to avoid the bulk of the rain. The Earl of Sawn‚Äôs tells me his garden has failed from too much of a good thing. He passed us by in a motorboat as we were headed for the ‚ÄúBar‚Äù and he waved us to come visit his home overlooking Mackerel Cove but the hills of Acadia were calling.
Well, folks are coming back from walks ashore. I can hear the chatter on deck, comparisons of who saw what and who met whom. Little girls selling lemonade become roadside celebrities. Summer artists create works that we all want to bring home. Lobster traps along the pier and the smell of bait wafting from the fisherman‚Äôs co-op are all the art I need. It is all the good stuff of islandness.
Have a great day. Be well. Do good.
