Getting away: a necessity of life
No wonder they call it 'Vacationland'
Pardon me for being silent for the last week or so. For much of that time, I’ve been away enjoying the good life at the fine home of an old friend who lives in Castine, on the Maine Seacoast.
This is my third summer visiting him. He has two boats: a sailboat and a motorboat, both of which are tremendous vessels — at least judging from my lifetime-landlubber perspective. And oh, his new nautically-themed house, meticulously designed and appointed, ain’t too shabby either.
For the last two summers, we’ve been joined by another old friend, now an actor, who attended boarding school with us. As you probably know, he and all the other SAG members are on strike, so he had plenty of time this year, a factor that allowed us to spend an extra couple of days up in the north country. There are few indulgences more fun than spending quality time with good friends you’ve known since eighth grade. So much in common and so much to enjoy and talk about.
At any rate, here are some photos of the trip. There’s a lot going on in the world, so I’ll be back in action with a post next week. Meanwhile, here are some photos you might enjoy:
