Photo of the Day…Stonington Harbor

This was taken from one of my favorite fishing villages in all of Maine…and home to one of my waterfront listings, Inn on the Harbor.

A great new Acadia National Park iPhone app by Chimani!

Chimani has just introduced this fabulous new iPhone application for Acadia National Park! Since I live on MDI surrounded by Acadia, I was happy to give it a test run.

It’s stocked with loads of information – hiking and biking trail information, sunrise and sunset times, loads of maps, ranger events, the Island Explorer free shuttle service locations/information and an auto tour with audio containing informative details about Acadia National Park. It’s like having a private tour guide in your car!

The visual aspect is one I can appreciate. There are beautiful photos, detailed maps (complete with contour lines) and it’s easy to navigate. This is a serious electronic guide book – handy in size and as detailed as you would need. It contains plenty of history about the trails and the trail construction (much like my favorite book “A Walk in the Park” by Tom St. Germain). But there are times when you don’t have a guide book with you. This is convenience without compromising any details.

I highly recommend you download this app. Nicely done, Chimani!

The quintessential Maine Spring vegetable, the Fiddlehead Fern

A Fiddlehead Fern is an unfurled frond of a young fern. There are several varieties that are harvested for consumption, but only for a very short period of time. They’ve been available for a few weeks now, but this is the first time I’ve been able to get them! They taste like a combination of asparagus, broccoli and have more antioxidants than blueberries! Wikipedia offers a great description.

This was taken from Wilson Pond Camps in Greenville on Lower Wilson Pond. I heard nothing but a distant loon that morning…

Good Morning from Maine!

There are about three times as many boats in the harbor as a week ago…four times that many to come…

Summer in Maine…Grilled Lobster

Boil for 5 minutes, then submerge in ice to stop the cooking. Crack the shell in various spots, drizzle with melted butter, cook face down on a medium grill for 8 minutes; flip them over, continue to baste with butter another 4-5 minutes (making sure to get some char on the shell) and enjoy! You’ll be amazed at what it does to the texture. TENDER!
