after many hours in the car and a brief interlude at my parents' house in connecticut, the gang and i have made it to maine.
we cut it close, but managed to get aboard the 1 o'clock ferry from rockland to vinalhaven.
the weather here couldn't be more perfect -- a wonderful break from the heat wave the rest of the east coast is experiencing. the food we've cooked has been delicious and our days have been spent quarry swimming, reading books, napping and walks around the island. it truly is heaven haven.
