|Stony Brook Recreation, Hanover, Maine (on Rte 2). Spending a couple of days here to get ready for the border crossing into Canada tomorrow, and also to prepare for a long stint of short stays and long driving days. This is beautiful country out this way, and where we originally thought we'd find some land. However, we just came back from food shopping in Bethel, and it has gotten so quaint I'm afraid the condition is terminal! Having done about all the 'quaint' I can stand, we're glad we bought where we did. Of course, I do realize that many of the things I like to buy (health food, alternative health products, etc.) are usually located in these places :) Since Belfast and Ellsworth (on either side of Bucksport) are both afflicted with a certain amount of quaintness, we can go there when we need to (and then flee back to the woods).
