And the season begins...
Two weeks ago Renee and I spent the weekend
in Greenville on Moosehead Lake at the most
wonderful Blair Hill Inn
It rained for two days, which was fine, as I sat perched in this
window seat in our room overlooking this view
Cocktails at 5:30 in the lounge, an extraordinary dinner at 6:30 each night,
the nicest innkeepers ever
The sun came out on our last day and we hiked to a waterfall on
the Appalachian Trail and ended with BBQ Pork and cole slaw in Munson
All this only three hours away!!
Then, on the last day of school some of my
Real World 101 kids came with lobsters
and we celebrated the end of a great year
Then, this past weekend was the debut of my
summer entrepreneurial program, Peas in a Pod
The new business owners, pictured above, prepped all day on Friday
and rocked it on Saturday at the Bridge Celebration on Deer Isle.
They will be selling delicious food three days a week
on the Island this summer for 6 weeks. Tuesdays at the Congregational
Church in Deer Isle, Wednesdays at the DI Farmer's Market across the street
and Thursdays in the PERC parking lot in Stonington.
Rumor has it that I will be teaching them how to make
delicious pies, and they will be taking orders :0)
As I drove over the causeway today returning from Blue Hill,
there were groups of folks splashing it up at that beach,
cars were lined up at Sand Beach, downtown Stonington was
a one lane road, my eggplants have flowers on them
and the Brays brought me the first of this year's strawberries from their garden.
