So, some pictures of home in Maine.
I took these during the annual Spring running of the alewives in
Damariscotta Mills.  The town still has a tradition of giving the
 small fish to widows.  This is the Mulligan Smokehouse and the
 smokers taking a break.

The 550 acre forest surrounding Mt. Tom is one of the earliest
 surviving examples of planned and managed reforestation in the
United States.  "Winding amid plantations of Norway spruce,
white pine, red pine, and European larch set out as early as 1874,
carriage roads and trails lead into the depths of rich hardwood stands
of native sugar maples, beech, and birch trees and through agricultural
pastures punctuated by old stone walls.  Scattered along these routes are
400 year old hemlocks, spared the axe to witness the march of history."

The Marsh Billings Rockefeller Mansion
was originally built for the Marsh family in 1805
and sold to Frederick Billings in 1869, when it
underwent extensive renovations designed by Boston
architect William Ralph Emerson, who transformed
the property into a fashionable stick-style mansion.
In 1885 Billings hired architect Henry Hudson Holly
to create a Queen Anne style renovation.
Several stained glass windows by Tiffany were
included. Laurence & Mary Rockefeller inherited the
mansion in 1954.

"As I go in under the trees, dependably,
almost at once, and by nothing I do,
things fall into place."
