One advantage to the real estate business is the ability to shift gears during the slow periods and enjoy a little free time. Last week we took the journey north to Maine. After arriving at midnight on Tuesday I was off to the Races for an 8:00am start. The 5k road race drew over 400 runners this year.
After the long drive and 5k run I was back at the cabin and ready to launch the boat by ten. We anchored a few hundred yards off shore to relax and catch a few rays before lunch.
Later in the day we cruised out to Lothrop Island to see if the birds were around. It is the only time we have seen the two eagles together on one branch. The Island consists of black sand beaches and is home to many rare plants. Today I discovered there is an Eagle Cam focused on the nest. so bird watchers can sneak a peak anytime.
Next we picked up a local ( cousin George ) and towed him out a few miles so he could test his boat. He also used the opportunity to collect some black sand, a few volcanic rocks and capture his shadow to prove he was there... Many times local folks don't explore their areas the way a vacationer does.
Suppose I am guilty of missing many of the Connecticut attractions. When I'm home I'm working and Maine is Vacationland.
