We love driving down the Blue Hill Peninsula, crossing the gorgeous suspension bridge to Deer Isle, and following the road to where it ends, in Stonington.

The town is vibrant and busy in the summer, quieter this time of year but still humming with life.


Just a few images from a late fall weekend spent in spectacular Acadia National Park, including a hike up Gorham Mountain Trail and around beautiful Jordan Pond.

Maine Huts and Trails

Maine Huts and Trails is offering a new winter/spring season pass allowing unlimited short-term stays in their gorgeous rustic lodges from December through June.

Grand Falls is their newest hut, which opened this October and is located below the spectacular Grand Falls in Kingfield, Maine. Finally we're getting a little excited about winter's approach!

The End of Apple Season

As we enter the second half of October, we're fast approaching the end of apple season in southern Maine. We took advantage of another beautiful weekend to visit two orchards, Thompson's Orchard in New Gloucester, and Hansel's Orchard in North Yarmouth. While Thompson's was picked nearly clean (they have excellent apple cider doughnuts, though), Hansel's still had plenty of trees weighed down with perfect apples.

Willard Beach in October

The beach is even more beautiful in autumn than it is in the summer.
