I'm getting very excited about my up coming trip!
First visiting friends in NH and going to the Hopington State Fair! Piggies and Cows and Goats and Sheep! Love it!
Then it's off to Monhegan Island. A wonderful pilgrimage if you're an artist.
(From the Boston Globe) Located 10 miles off the mid-Maine coast, the island has been drawing artists from around the world for more than 150 years. Giants in the US art world have been inspired by Monhegan, including George Bellows, C. K. Chatterton, Randall Davey, Robert Henri, Rockwell Kent, Edward Willis Redfield, Frederick Judd Waugh, and three generations of the Wyeth family: N.C., Andrew, and Jamie.
