The front room of the Olsen House
We were up in Maine for the Fourth. We usually go for Labor Day be this time we were early. It was very different. Lots of fish activity at the cabin. Blues chasing big schools of bait fish on the changing tides. Seals chasing bait fish and thousands of seabirds. It was hot. Except on the from deck. The photo above was taken in the Olsen House where Andrew Wyeth paint so many iconic paintings. Truly the best light I have ever encountered.. The highlight of the trip for me.
Of course there was Moody’s where I had the best blueberry pancakes on the planet. I was a trip jam packed with surprises. We went to a clam shack in Seabrook, NH I haunted in my youth. Visited with an old friend in Haverhill my home town
On the why to the highway I turned onto the street where I grew up ‘I think I’ll drive by the house’. I stopped in front. A woman and a dog were there. I’ Grew up in this house’ I said. “Are you Jimmy Kingston the artist?’ she asked. It’s a long story made short we looked around inside flooding me with forgotten memories. Wow. Far out.
