I realize it’s been a while since the last post. I’m sorry, but the reasons are Mainely good. My sister and I took a week long trip to the beautiful state of Maine several weeks ago; it was a fun and full week, and I’m sure the Maine thing we’ll remember is the good time we had.
Ok, in all seriousness and bad puns aside, here are a few photos from our week. It was wonderful trip; it was my sister Abigail’s first excursion to Maine and my third. Whenever I go to Maine it’s always an incredible experience that makes me want to go back. The primary reason for our northernly journey was to assist our grandpa, owner of Katie’s Kanoes, with a demonstration day for his canoes. The canoes he had for the demonstration day were not your typical canoes; they’re NuCanoes. The NuCanoe is a bit wider, a lot more stable, and a lot more versatile than most other canoes. On one of his NuCanoes he has a rudder with a small electric motor on it and a solar panel, which I got to fiddle with while I was up there (oh joy!). Another one was rigged with a sail. From paddling around Cold Stream Pond, to flying in a floatplane above it (thanks, Mr. Roger!), to boating on Mettawamkeag Lake (many thanks to Arthur and Reneva Smith for the lovely cruise on their boat!) we thoroughly enjoyed our Maine experience. Visit my Flickr page to see all the photos.
Mr. Roger flew a floatplane out to Cold Stream Pond to try and buy a NuCanoe from Katie’s Kanoes. He very kindly offered us a ride above Cold Stream Pond.
