Lunaform tour

a short walk touring Lunaform

a well-hidden forest studio
making hand turned cement bowls, urns, planters
of extraordinary size and presence

a desire to spend time there
sitting among the negative spaces
enclosed by those stone surfaces

listen –

cottages with Sam

walking to the community garden through the woods
and thence to Suzanne’s rental cottage

Friday the 13th
Sam’s examining the broken lock

returned home through the golden yellow
birch allée, so beautiful

the mowed paths through the meadows
and the forest trail

1.1 mile

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

jordan homestead property

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

Old Pond Rail Trail

From start to finish!
it was warm but tolerable
met some wormers, spoke with them about their catch
observed worms in a bucket

Suzanne’s walking pole slithered into a ravine
debating whether we should abandon it there
my instinct was to lower my full body height
down, holding onto branches and roots
until I could just reach it

7.4 miles
my kind of hike!
