The friend that we are potentially (hopefully, as long as she doesn't read this and decide that we are crazy) renting from is so considerate that she has gone out of her way to stress to me that the way of life on the island is very simple and to encourage us to visit. I told her that is not a problem for us, we used to very happily rent a house on a lake in Maine that didn't have a color T.V. or a phone, as a matter of fact, it didn't even technically have a street (it was a fire lane). She also stressed that the house is very small but again I think that will be to our benefit. As I told her in a message, we spend so much time these days heading in different directions and doing our own thing that it will be kind of nice to be stuck together. All in all, many of us in my family are very much looking forward to our unexpected summer getaway!
Since it is throwback Thursday, and because posts are always better with pictures, here's a picture of us from one of our trips to Maine (wow, we look young and ok, a little goofy in our matching sunglasses. Hey don't judge, it was a long time ago)
