Oak Island light house is really, really, really tall.
“Let’s climb the light house,” we said. “Sounds like fun!” we said. “It’s only 131 steps,” we said. Ha! This goes down as one of the most terrifying and thrilling and exciting and surprisingly dangerous things I’ve done in a long time. I’m surprised they don’t give you climbing gear and a tether. Glad we did it, but boy oh boy I’m happy to be back down at sea level.

She taught me how to row in this same spot 40 years ago. There’s a less leaky rowboat now and long, strong oars for rowing lessons with our kids. Here’s mom in her happy place doing what she loves most. #maine

As David Foster Wallace's famous essay, Consider the Lobster illustrated, throughout Colonial-era America, the lobster was considered “among the least desirable foods one could put in their face - a garbage meat fit only for the indigent, indentured, and incarcerated.” We wholeheartedly disagree. #lobsterdinner

“Adorned with spruce and fir trees,
Defying wave and rain,
Eternal as the mountains,
The iron coast of Maine.
A coast by inlets broken,
With islands thickly strewn,
As if one time by giants,
‘Twas shattered, carved and hewn.”

Written by my great uncle Henry A. Swanton in 1922. Pictured are my three giants, enjoying Swanton Cove and looking not so giant.
