Trip to Deer Isle, Maine

Just returned from visiting Marty and Grace in Maine. We had a great time and Marty and Grace were wonderful hostesses! We had many wonderful conversations, worked on crosswords, had great seafood and Mitch played the ukelele.

Marty gave me the incredible gift of this afghan, knitted by her aunt Ned. My great, great aunt.

I bought this hand dyed yarn in nearby Blue Hill, and plan on designing a shawl using the afghan as inspiration.

Savannah Craft Brew Festival

Spent Labor Day weekend in Savannah for the Savannah Craft Brew Festival. Fun!

Riding the free water taxi from Savannah's River St. across the river to the convention center where the event was held...here's the view of Savannah from the boat. See the gold domed building?

Mitch and another home brewer need a refill...
