Green Eggs and Sam with George

Steps that once led to Doerr House

We’re starting to think about home – both sad to see our vacation ending and glad to be back in our own beds. 

After yesterday’s long hike, we opted for a much shorter and easier trek to Compass Point. It’s the site where George Doerr’s family had a “cottage” in late 1800. The place was razed in the 1950’s but the long set of steps to the harbor and some of the foundation still remain.

We went to Café This Way for breakfast. I had Green Eggs and Sam – an omelet with spinach, artichokes, calamite olives and feta. Sometimes you get an omelet like that and you can barely see the goodies and it’s only sprinkled with cheese. Not this one! I could taste every one of the ingredients and the cheese was chunky. So good!

We walked around Bar Harbor, but it was packed with vacationers and cruise people, so we didn’t stay long. We went back to the cottage, watched the last of Big Little Lies, ate sloppy joe casserole for dinner and just relaxed. Good day and night!

What are the Maine Diaries?

The Maine Diaries is a fun look at my annual adventure to New England where I unwind from normal life and reconnect with myself.

I was captivated by the Maine Coast on my first trip there in the late 90’s. In the years since, I’ve traveled up and down the coast from Kittery to Calais but I spend most of my Maine time Downeast. I love the adventures I have and the chance to unwind from the world and restore my inner clarity. I chronicle my experiences in The Maine Diaries.
