Thursday, October 22, 2015 Photos from this (our first) day in Maine Maine is a very special place on this planet for me, not just because of the natural beauty that flows through the land and consequently from the people who live there, but because of the most enjoyable times spent there over the years. My cousin, writer James K. Straub, aka Stubdude, and his wonderful wife, artist June Kellogg, have been living there since the 80s, and I visit the fun nearly every October. I choose October rather than the popular summer months because that’s the Maine I love. The money changers, so to speak, and consuming crowds traditionally leave by Columbus Day, October 12th, and the state is left with only real Mainers –the ones who brave out the winters.

Brooklin Tuesday, we crossed the Deer Isle Bridge and headed northwest on route 175 to Brooklin and the Wooden Boat School. Along the way, we passed through the town of Sedgewick. This is the town where Kurt’s sail loft is located. He gave us the grand tour and showed us his work. He’s currently in the process of making a mizzen sail for a Herreshoff A boat. Back on the road we blinked and drove right through the center of Brooklin. The center of town is so small, we didn’t realize we’d past it until all we saw along the road were trees again.
