salt pond loop

5.5 miles

Eastside Road to Carter’s Lane
to visit the abandoned house
with apple trees

down the hill and through
the woods, unmarked, deer paths,
coming out at Salt Pond Road

back along the beach
and up Jellison’s Cove Road
along the water to home, tired

Food, Foliage and Friends

a talk and walk
at the Jordan Homestead Property
on Bayside Road in Ellsworth

a nascent trail
woodsy, mossy, lumpy

up to a steep ridge
overlooking the Union River

good companionship,
wise effort,
generosity of the Jordan family
