Actually, we’re back in Ithaca, recovering from a holiday family celebration at the Dragonfly Guest House (recently acquired by my brother-in-law Charles and his partner David) in Ogunquit, Maine. I highly recommend the town in general and the guest house in particular. This time of year, the population is about 1,500. During the season, it’s upward of 80,000. So we more or less had the beaches, the trail along the Maine coast and the shops to ourselves. This place is definitely worth checking out.
Here’s a local lobsterman’s Christmas decorations made of lobster traps stacked and decorated as a Christmas tree in his yard. Wish I’d grabbed the camera on my morning walks to watch the sunrise. But you’ll have to visit yourself to have that experience.
