Trolls at Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens
Hello Friday Harbor and San Juan Island! As many of you know, Shannon and I have been traveling in our homemade camper van, exploring the United States. The San Juan Update has been mostly in the capable hands of Hayley Day who has been doing the heavy lifting daily maintenance in our absence. (Thank you Hayley!)
We’ve been enjoying adventures all over the country and many times I’ve thought of sharing some of them here on the Update, but I always tell myself, “well that’s not really related to island life” so I’ve held back on those impulses.
But today, we’re on the coast of Maine, in the little town of Camden, and the whole area is so much like home – the bays, the marine views, the boats anchored in the harbors – that we’re really looking forward to being home this fall.
And though it’s not related to island life, I thought I would just this once go ahead and share something with you from our travels east side of the continent. We’ve just visited the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens just south of here in Boothbay. And we saw a wonderful troll art installation by Danish artist Thomas Danbo – the Guardians of the Seeds.
I won’t go into it too much right here, but if you’re interested, we just published a summary about it including 40 photos of the park and the trolls. Click here to see it.
And we’ll see you this fall!
