Today, Steve had business in Skowhegan, so we took off after breakfast to accomplish it. After, it being a Day Like No Other, we drove north, stopping for a snack at the Scenic Overlook Only Locals Know about, in East Madison, or possibly it’s just over the Solon border. Gorgeous views of the near and slightly far mountains — you people over there, stop laughing. To us, they’re mountains. And today, they were breathtaking.
Having decided that we hadn’t seen enough, we continued driving in a northerly direction, thinking at one point to cross at Jackman, drive a short stretch through Canada and re-enter at Coburn Gore. Reason — or, at least, the need to write and catch up some other tasks at home — prevailed. We stopped at Bishop’s Store in Jackman, topped off the gas tank, took on snacks and turned around, arriving at the Cat Farm and Confusion Factory shortly after 3.
Having now done business, played hookey, and been responsible — all in one day! — I’m going to finish up this blog post and go for a walk in the delightful evening.
Tomorrow, the day-job!
