Paradise....that's what it is.

I worked this weekend. This is my view at one of the jobs. I still can't believe I get paid to work in Paradise.

Open Farm Day was Sunday - did you visit a local farmer? That's where I was - this is Tide Mill Farm, a ninth-generation family farm that grows organic meat, vegetables and milk. The farm is on Cobscook Bay in the tiny town of Edmunds. The farm is at the site of a tide-powered grist mill (now long gone - only the grinding wheel is left) that was built in 1765 by a Scottish immigrant who was shone the magical spot by a Passamaquoddy Indian. Today the farm is home to six families decended from that Scotman. The farm sits on 1600 acres of mostly forest with more than six miles of shoreline.

Spectacular.
That's all. Just spectacular.
I can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring...

Oh Cobscook is so gorgeous. We had rented a cottage in Pembroke for a week in June the last few years and just love it. Though we didn't this year because of the rain...

Look it up, Ross Cottage---They have a website, they donate all rental proceeds to the land trust. Very nice, it's like staying in a museum.

I agree with Libby! Looks like quite a place to visit and a wonderful story too!
