Staying in the home of a well-connected man got us an opportunity to tour of that gorgeous red barn. Voyeur dream come true. Inside is a half basketball court, storage for boats, a gym, restroom, classroom, extra storage space and an observation loft. I know who I'm going to hire to build our dream home, the same man who owns our rental, built that barn and knows many high-powered residents of Georgetown.
With every new place I discover I fall deeper in love with Maine. Husband and I are going to retire on the shoreline of this beautiful state in a small, cozy home with our creatures. Returning back "home" seems even more difficult now. Texas, I love you but Maine has been oh so seductive with her rocky shorelines, hidden beaches, strong cold breezes, clear days with blinding sunlight, historical lighthouses, elegant birch trees (LOVE!) and mysterious forests. It took me a long time to get here but I'm glad I came.
I'm completely ready to relocate to Maine and live the rest of my life here. Sure, I haven't seen winter here but if the spring and summer are as gorgeous as they are now, I can deal.

A well thought out Thai Chicken Salad with peanut dressing, grilled chicken, sweetened shredded coconut, grilled pineapple cubes, sliced almonds, mixed greens, red cabbage, roasted red peppers, julienned carrots and a yeast roll. Loved the crunchy sweetened coconut bits and juicy pineapple cubes. The little add-ons really made the salad excellent.
