Hiked through the Maine woods above the cliffs to the farthest point east in the continental United States today – through bogs and forest and over rocky precipices. Stood on the very edge of the world and waved to Tom and Ishbel Stronach across the pond.
It was indescribably beautiful, reminded me of hiking above Loch Ness near Inverfairigaig. Not only does the land look and feel the same, the smells are the same and the water is peaty. No wonder the first European explorers (the Norse probably) to North America were reminded of home.
So, my first NorEaster and tomorrow there may be snow on the ground. Can’t wait! Love, Julia
