Thanks, Heidi. I think I'm going to leave today. I'm getting a little uncomfortable at the money I've been laying out at this point, and I came up here primarily for the meet-up anyway. I did get some good pictures in Acadia, though, of some of the park sites I hadn't seen on previous trips, and I may stop into the Schoodic part of the park before I leave. (My favorite Maine picture is one I got of a gull on Schoodic on a really misty day that looks like a moon-scape, but it could be interesting to get some shots in bright weather.)

I probably should put a little more planning into my next trip, to try to find some REALLY cheap motel (Jasper's is great, and $79/night isn't bad, but I'm thinking some off-season more towards Bar Harbor on Route 3). And I want to plan things out so my timing's good on stuff like the Sarah Orne Jewett House, that has limited hours. I'll probably try to make it back in the spring. And fortunately, I DID get to a tour of the Jonathan Fisher House in Blue Hill, which was one of my top priorities because of Mary Ellen Chase's biography of him.

Hope you like The Edge of Darkness. I think it happened to be Chase's own personal favorite, and it's got the same structure -- stories united around a central character -- as Pointed Firs does.
Happy 2nd Thingaversary, Heidi!
Heidi! Sweetiedarling, that wasn't a hint, and I don't want you to deprive yourself of a book you enjoy. I'd feel creepy.

Righty-ho, snookums, on its way on Friday!


Ho Ho Ho
Heidi....saw your question on Cheli's thread about the Penny books in audio. I've read and listened to all of them (except the last). The audios are FABULOUS IMHO. The french pronunciations, and beautiful characterizations add so much to the enjoyment of the stories and fixing the characters in my mind. I just got the audio for this last one and can't wait.

May I please offer something?

Well at least I know it wasn't just me!!! I think I'm going to drop a line to Sarah Graves and see what the deal is. I'll be nice, but I'd sure like to know how he got that anchor off his leg! Thanks for taking the time to look that up for me.
