Time Lapse Sunset

Today is an Amazing Day. Spring might finally be here. The traffic going by has doubled. The motorcycles are out in full force. At one point I saw a pack of about 12 of them go by. Lots of people are out walking and a few of the daffodils have blossomed. After 20 years at the Inn I am taking on a task I have never done before. I am going to help Victoria in the Gardens. Last Fall I did some clean up with her and apparently I didn't drive her nuts because I am back at it. Either that or she doesn't want to spread the mulch and soil by herself. We still can have a frost at night until about Mid May so we are safe ( maybe) til then with Sue buying her Annuals . The photo on the bottom is the new Toy we have at the Log Cabin. I am going for driving lessons tomorrow to make lugging the soil all over the property a bit easier.
  Cooks opened today after Major renovations this Winter. I haven't been down yet but on this glorious day I heard they already had a waiting line. I did go to the Dolphin Marina for lunch last Friday. They have such a nice,clean Dining room with a 360deg View and good food. They have also added a patio onto the West  side of the Building where they can serve food.

I found a nice trip to take about an hour from here in Augusta , the Maine State Museum. They  currently have an added Exhibit on the Gunsmiths in Maine in the 1800's. The Museum has three floors and loaded with very interesting facts. It is such a bargain too. I believe $2 for Adults and $1 for Seniors and Children. You can't go wrong. My son is a budding Docent and he drags me to Museum's all over. A few random thoughts I have; the Fast Ferry will be running again this Summer from Portland to Nova Scotia every day at 2:30. It is a different company from last year. Our  Maryland/DC Visitors will be happy to know that the JetPort has added several extra flight to BWI. We also have an additional Airline, Elite that has scheduled flights to Florida. We also have the Amtrak DownEaster Train that not only stops in Portland but comes all the way to Brunswick. So there is no excuse not to visit. Plane, Boat,Train,Car, Bus,Bike you can get to Harpswell.

We have two new Employees this Season. Please Welcome Pauline and Kim on your next visit. Lastly I am not that Tech savy but will attempt to post Matts recent Sunset Video. If it doesn't work you can go to You Tube and search "Bailey Island time lapse sunset"
