Here’s the thing about Maine…

April 2, 2013

Despite living in the Northeast for all for my life, June of last year was the first time I had ever stepped foot inside the state of Maine. People told me I was missing out, and after spending the summer there, I would have to agree. Take a cliché like “a breath of fresh air” and forget that you ever heard it. Now, spend some time in Maine. What’s the first phrase that comes to mind? Exactly. It’s not grandiose; it’s just true.
Okay, I had a great experience, but I admit that I’m no expert. I was there for the first time and I let people know. And guess what? Every Mainer I met seemed like a walking encyclopedia entry on their state. Try as I might, I could not keep up with the suggestions I received for places to go and things to see. This year, I hope to check off a few more of those things that make it “uniquely Maine.” Here’s just a few.

The Coastal Maine Botanical Gardenshttp://www.mainegardens.org/

Acadia National Park, which spans over 35,000 acres: http://www.visitmaine.com/attractions/state_national_parks/acadia_national_park/

Fun at this year’s Fiber Arts Retreat

August 8, 2012

When by chance I read a Rav post about a Fiber Arts Retreat at Medomak, Maine, I checked their website and said, ” this is too good to be true”…
For those who have shared in fiber heaven this week, you know that there are not enough superlatives to describe the experience…

Although there are scheduled classes and events, you are free to participate as much or as little as you choose…there is a constant camaraderie of fellow fiber enthusiasts gathering in casual groups to spin, weave, knit, crochet, felt, and dye…if you need down time or rejuvenation space, sit under a tree and read, snooze in the hammock, or head to the lakefront…

The teachers are all eager to share their knowledge in a low-keyed casual environment…suggestions and experiences are shared as ideas fly freely…

Ably organized by Casey, the staff and instructors are incredibly tuned into attendees needs and anticipate special circumstances…laughter and humor abound…

Words fail to describe the incredible food…produce picked from the Camp garden could not be any fresher…cheeses and yogurt made on site from the Camp cows…meals with unbelievable fresh herbs and astounding parings of flavors…

As this session closes, I am already planning on returning next year to be engulfed in fiber heaven on earth…
