This is the mosaic of the pics to I took in Maine (click it to see them all on Flickr). I sort of love it. This is basically in chronological order, a few Boston pics at the beginning and end and a lovely depiction what I saw: buildings, sky, ocean, sky, ocean, beaches, forests, oceans, sunsets and sunrises. I love how the colors in the mosaic look like a whole day, bright in the middle and dimming at the end.
I had a great trip. I feel like I should say something philosophical about traveling alone but I don’t know what. It was great the freedom, but it was bittersweet enjoying restaurants alone. I’m utterly i love with Maine. I’m sure this is like when people visit Seattle and the weather is gorgeous and they gush about how amazing it is and I’m like, yeah, grey 9 months a year. Like, clearly Maine must be awful in winter but still it presented itself to me as something wonderful. Like a place I’d only read about in books, a place of my imaginings made real. Which I guess it is. I’ve filled my Amazon Wishlist of Maine things to get through out the next few months so I can keep in my head how I felt while I was there. Especially while I was out on the water. I miss the ocean so much.
I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Wow, the entrance to the Admiral’s house is pretty nifty. What made you decide to go to Maine? Have you been there before?

Iris, I had to go to Boston and I had a few extra days and when I was exploring possibilities I discovered that Maine was really easy to get to (2 hours by train). I just figured that it wasn’t some place I was ever going to accidentally drive through so I’d better go while I had the chance. And boy am I glad I did!
