Sailing Along the Coast

Whoa - it's sunny! After 40 days and 40 nights of overcast and arctic air mass, there's not a cloud in the sky and the temps are supposed to climb into the 40s. We're heading for the coast - maybe Camden!

My childhood friend Morgan is visiting from Sacramento, CA. She had a choice of going to her house on the Baja in Mexico or coming to Maine for her week off. I really wanted to encourgage her to go to the Baja, but didn't want her to feel like I didn't want her to come here. So I tried to make Maine sound as good as I could this time of year.

As it turns out, and it's the way it always goes when two good friends get together after a long time, we've been having a blast. After a few days doing the cultural thing in Portland, we traveled inland for a day and night in Kingfield to show her the two sides of Maine. We got shanghied in Kingfield for an extra night - ice storm, but as it turned out - we had a delightfully mellow indoor day talking, reading and watching a few videos. Who gets to do that these days!

Today however, I will try to describe summer in Maine as we cruise along the coast. She might get the idea looking through the windows of the car. There will be a rude awakening when she steps outside, but during this time of year in Maine, the 40s are going to feel like spring.
