In my years of exploring Maine, one of the pleasures is discovering the unexpected.
My art self is thrilled to find a delightful art gallery in a surprising place.
Driving down a road where there is nothing but wide open spaces decorated with nature’s gifts and following a sign leading to a winery is definitely unexpected and a taste treat.
Exploring an island and finding what we called mussel heaven is a delight.
Taking the mussels back to the boat and steaming them for an unexpected treat is the best!
Though not a pleasure, discovering a single gravesite suggests hardship of survival and makes one wonder what happened to others who left this one behind.
There is joy in finding a roadside stand with fresh produce that operates on the honor system.
Only in Maine have I seen a sign quite like this which whetted the appetite to explore. Guess what? In addition to there not being many people here, there wasn’t much to see!
Maine is unique in so many ways, and this is just a small taste of what I love about it!
