Art by Nora DeBolt

Friday, September 30th, 2011

Normally, I'm pretty oblivious to hotel room art. In our room last night, however, were a couple of beautiful prints. The paintings were done by a little-known late 19th and early 20th century American impressionist, named Nora DeBolt. I took pictures of the prints, and cropped out bits of wall ...

No climbing on cow.

Before lunch yesterday, I took a short 10k walk through the neighborhood. Almost immediately, I happened upon a fox—two doors down from our cottage. It didn't seem rabid, but it didn't seem skittish, either. Apparently, people feed the foxes, and they've become less fearful of humans. Not good, since that's ...

Cheese, llamas, and windmills—oh, my!

Yesterday, we decided to pay a visit to the Cheese Lady, in Winsloe. She makes nothing but Gouda, and she makes it as well as the Dutch. The Cheese Lady had llamas on our previous visit a few years ago. The llamas were there to chase away coyotes that prey ...

We're in Moncton, NB. I didn't take any pictures yesterday—it was drizzling on & off. This is just a stopover on our way to eastern Nova Scotia, where we'll be for the next four days. Quick restaurant review… on our way up from Augusta, Maine, we stopped at a little seafood ...

From North Andover to Augusta

Monday, September 19th, 2011

We're in August, Maine, at the Fairfield Inn & Suites. We have a regular room, rather than a suite. It's comfortable, albeit not spacious. We've decided to spend another night here, and head over into Canada sometime tomorrow. We began yesterday by attending the First Religious Society (UU) of Newburyport, Massachusetts. ...
