Paradise Regained

Let's hear a rousing round of applause for the Rangeley Public Library, which has an Internet connection and a bunch of computers just for the use of Web-deprived tourists (but since there is generally a line, this will be a short post). They will also let us borrow books. They are altogether lovely people, but then librarians generally are.

The library is, however, but a small cherry atop the most chocolaty, berry-studded, ice-cream-scrumptious, whipped-cream-smothered confection of a vacation spot I have ever experienced. Despite that verbose and fattening metaphor, neither my words nor my pictures will be remotely equal to the task of conveying to you how amazing this place is, not that I won't try.

This is the view from the front deck of the place we rent.

Miss B knows what to do.

(Is that water blue enough for you, Margene?)

Finally, I give you a sky picture, complete with water, mountains, and accidental duck. There are lots more where that came from (mostly without ducks), so stay tuned.


  • oh man, that looks so great. i'm so jealous of miss B.

  • Fabulous views, it's relaxing just to see the pictures from here :)

  • The accidental duck just MAKES the picture. Otherwise, it's a blues sonata by Chopin. But with the duck - Boss Scaggs!!

    Air mattress, sunblock, big hat. Tie a rope to your ankle so you don't drift too far out. BECOME the floatie! Ahhhh. . .

  • I'm from Maine! You're only a few hours away from me. I love the Rangeley area. A friend of mine has a camp up there and I go as often as I'm invited! Enjoy your stay in our beautiful state!
