Current Craving: Maine

It's summertime in Boston, which means it's hot and sticky, and I'm a wee bit cranky about it. But it's also summertime in Maine, which means sea breezes, shady mountain trails, fleeces and hiking boots, the pool and the hot tub, big breakfasts, hot popovers with strawberry jam — and maybe some seaweed soup if I'm lucky. I've been missing our friends and family up there since August. This year, we've planned three trips to our favorite inn, and we're heading there next week for a short first visit. I can't wait: can you tell?

We've been away for so long that I even miss the mosquitoes that attack me at sunset on the dock in Southwest Harbor:


I'm about to get a new freelance project that will probably keep me writing furiously in my lounge chair by the pool. Not the best timing, but at least I'll be writing about art and helping to pay for the trip. And you can be sure I'll also be sending you pretty postcard pictures right here. Three cheers for laptops and wifi. I guess.

  1. Looking forward to a peek at Maine. It will be a while before I can take a vacation so I'll have to enjoy yours vicariously.
