We’re back from an all-too-brief trip to Maine. We ate lots of seafood, hiked around, got out on the water, and gulped down as much of the salty, energizing shoreline air as our lungs could stand. We enjoyed temperatures that never got above the 70s and evenings where the thermometer dipped down into the 50s, windshirts and hoodies were required attire, and windows were kept open for optimal sleeping conditions.
When I get back from a vacation, I always try to hang on to the relaxed vacation mindset as long as possible. I hope to retain some Maine on the brain — for a few days, at least.
