We headed to the eastern Portland today for a few things, namely a camera for Chris and art supplies for me. On the drive home, we stopped off on a little island just north. I really do love the eastern shore. Heading home now..

I did two legs of the Androscoggin River Watershed Council’s Source to Sea event..so far. Hopefully I will get to do a few more days. These are pictures are from my second trek…from Shelburne NH to Gilead ME. It really was a beautiful day and a great stretch of the river.
The Androscoggin River used to be one of the most polluted rivers in the United States. Twenty years ago you could smell the river from a distance and children grew up being told to stay away from it’s shores. The Source to Sea event helps to highlight this river and the efforts taken to clean it up.
I highly recommend this event and spending time on this beautiful water.
It’s hard to see, but if you look close, there’s a cemetery, a very small one, under the tree on the right. Just a handful of headstones, a few bodies laid to rest, their sold granted this everlasting view.
Its been raining all day. The weather here is exactly what it is back in Portland, 2000 miles away. It’s spring, I wasn’t expecting any different.
We’re in Bar Harbor now. I got a room with an sea view..more pictures later.
I’m sitting in the Camden Public Library with my husband. It’s really the loveliest library I’ve ever been in. A large window overlooks the perfect New England harbor. There’s a stately fireplace on the other end; art, comfy chairs, chandeliers…I could go on.
It’s the first time my husband and I have stopped since we landed in Boston five days ago. We’ve criss-crossed the Vermont New Hampshire border too many times to count; we’ve been in the car so long the car looks likes like we’re actually living in it.
This stillness is deserved. It is relished.
