How exciting! My first post on my new blog on Easter morning! Here are some of the things I’ll be blogging about:
The Maine Historic Seasonal Episcopal Church Tour
Maine is home to over a dozen Episcopalian churches that are only open for the brief and magical summer season, many of which are on an island, nestled in the woods or right on the coast in charming seaside communities. Wayne and I are planning to take trips to visit and worship in about eight of them this summer. Even if you aren’t religious, the architecture, history and settings of these churches are stunning from the pics I’ve seen. I can’t wait to witness them in person and share our serene summer Sunday getaways here!
The Working Waterfront
Wayne is friendly with interesting people who make a living from the sea. Perhaps we’ll see first-hand what it’s like to work as a lobsterman!
Traditional New England Cooking
My favorite cookbooks are those from Maine kitchens, churches, civic organizations written prior to the 1970s. I’d like to share some of those recipes along with my own creations.
I love capturing moments to share!
Musings on Antiquarian Book Excerpts from the Library of a Bibliophile
Over the past two decades I have collected old books and ephemera from Maine yard, estate and church rummage sales. They provide me with spiritual direction and nostalgic delight.
Sailing & Nautical Adventures
Wayne loves boats! He’s been in the marine industry for over twenty years and prior to that spent much of his childhood summers at his former family summer home in Sunapee, New Hampshire where he enjoyed sailing. In the past I’ve shared about his friend who is building a vintage-replica yacht by hand, and his co-worker who lives on a sailboat year-round. I can see more of those kinds of posts!
Serene Places to Walk and Relax
Those are just some hints of what’s ahead. I hope you’ll follow my blog and stick around! Thanks for reading my first post! (Earlier posts were imported from my retired blog, Outdated By Design).
