2019 Epilogue 

I got an email from Ollie at Windward Cottages. The subject line said “left in cottage.” I thought “what could we possibly have left? I thought we did a “last sweep” and I looked through drawers and closet and think Joseph did the same.  

Of course I figured Joseph did it. 

When I opened up the email, I saw “undergarments” and cringed. I know I took the last shower, so whatever was left was mine. Did I leave my bra or panties or maybe (I hoped) I just left socks. No such luck. 

I was too embarrassed to call Ollie myself. I asked Joseph to do it. 

When Joseph came home tonight, he had a sheepish look on his face. I cringed again. “Did you talk to Oliie,” I asked. “Yes,” he said, and burst out laughing. 

Fortunately, I didn’t leave everything. Unfortunately, it was my sports bra. Now, dear readers, I’m a big girl, so my bra is big to begin with. But my sports bra, with everything structural that holds my everythings in and up, is huge!!!  

I just wanted to crawl under the chair and stay there until the red in my face became at least a nice shade of pink.  







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.
