Today Susan and I cycled our longest day- 74.5 miles. Susan was a real Marine, and only needed 2 coffees and one Coke despite the hills and headwinds.
Theis beautiful falls was in Millbridge, Maine. The native americans named it “Big Bad Falls.”
Somebody has a sense of humor.
The Maine countryside is so lovely.
At last we arived at Aufries home. It is the last house on a dirt road. You can see Canada across the inlet, St. Andrews.
Such an amazing setting.
Here is Audrie’s kitchen, all the copper pots came from France.
Happy Birthday Audrie!
The house was filled with family pictures and portraits and art.
The dining room awaiting the birthday guests.
And my cozy bedroom.
I am learning a lot about Maine and the people that live here. I admire their rugged independance, I see the old money, I talk to well educated people often. Their short growing season- from late June to early September- astonishes me.
A really good trip.
