Miranda's parked on the street next to Christ's Church Rye this morning. One of Melanie's EPF board members, Rev. Michael Kurth, is Curate here. She will worship at 10:00 and then we'll have lunch with Michael before we travel to Molly Stark State Park in Vermont.
Before moving down the road too much farther, I'd be remiss if I didn't mention how grateful we are (once again) to our friend, Diana Kyser, who lives in Summit, New Jersey for allowing us to park Miranda in her driveway for a few days so we could, among other things attend Climate Strike New York City. We also took in the Biennial with Diana yesterday at the Whitney Museum of Art. It was good visiting with her and the dogs and we look forward to seeing them again in October before Melanie travels to Palestine.
Another note of gratitude goes to out Diane and Jim Paterson who reside in Georgetown, Maine just outside of Bath, Maine.
They hosted us for a few days before and after a very successful EPF event in Bath at Grace Episcopal Church which Diane organized. Not only did the Paterson's allow us to park Miranda at their lovely home along the Maine coast, but they gave us use of one of their Subarus (the official state car of Maine and Vermont) and use of their cottage which sits adjacent to their home.
Because of Georgetown's relative remoteness, I was able to get out on the road on Red Ranger and ride around Georgetown and to Reid State Park which is about 4 miles from Jim and Diane's home. What a great resource for the residents.
We appreciate their generosity and are happy we have two new friends in Maine. We look forward to spending more time with them when we are back through the area.
Good afternoon from Chewonki Campground on the coast of Maine.
We're here for a few days before heading south to Bath, Maine, we'll park Miranda in Georgetown, for an EPF event this coming Sunday.
Our recent time in Essex Junction, Vermont was a great experience thanks to our hosts John Heermans and Cecilia Polansky. They allowed us to park Miranda in front of their barn for a few days, showed us around Essex Junction and Burlington, Vermont, cooked for us, and took us out to their favorite local pub for dinner.
Melanie and I really enjoyed all our time in Vermont and are very grateful for time spent with John and Cec and for their generosity. We look forward to seeing them again in Bath.
Steven and Melanie
