I've been reading about Squam on lots of different blogs for several years now and it would seem to be a magical place. I can't wait to experience it. I won't know another soul when I get there on Wednesday, which makes me a little anxious and is forcing me out of my comfort zone. Though I'm likely to be one of the oldest Squamies (as they refer to themselves), I'm ready for the adventure.
In the meantime, Mike and I have taken a few days to explore the coast of Maine. Today we made the obligatory pilgrimage to the L.L. Bean flagship store in Freeport. I was here many years ago and it has sure expanded a lot in that amount of time. Tomorrow we'll go to Camden to see the harbor there and I'm going to check out a new yarn store, "The Cashmere Goat". Very unusual name! Mainly, we're here to relax, see a bit of the coast and have as many lobster rolls as we can stand to eat. While I'm at Squam, Mike and a friend will be hiking a small part of the Appalachia Trail.
I'm going to try posting some pictures in the next few days, but am unsure about internet status after I get to Squam. If that plan fails, I'll move on to Plan B and post when I get back to the farm. At any rate, more to come!
