Sue is right, it has been a Beautiful September so far. The nights have been a bit chilly but today for instance the temperature was in the mid 70's. I had the pool open and guests spent the whole day sunning, reading and enjoying a glass of wine on the lawn. We have also enjoyed 3 weeks straight of hanging the No Vacancy sign out.

When I think of this time of year I often think of the many times I have gone apple picking. You can pick about 30 minutes from here at Rocky Ridge in Bowdoinham. They have pumpkins as well and a
little store that has food, gifts and the Best Homemade Cinnamon donuts. If you go on the weekend you have to get there early to get the donuts. They also have horse drawn wagons rides through the orchard and the kids love to do that. Reports are with the combination of rain and sun that we have had that it will be a great year for apples. I have been busy with apple pie's and homemade applesauce. If you do not want to travel quite so far you can pick up a bag on RT 123 in Harpswell at the orchard  at Skofield Farms. It is  the honor system, take a bag and leave some cash in the box.

A little news of the Cedar Beach front. Some additional property owners along the Cedar Beach Road have formed a group and they may allow access over a part of their properties to Cedar Beach. The lawsuit still goes forward with the other property owners though. Money is still being raised and the issue has not been put to rest. Stay tuned....

Don't forget First day of Fall Sunday.

Health and Happiness.
