The Maine Outcome!

What a wonderful evening we had on the Islander Casco Bay cruise! Spectacular views. Scrumptious food. Perfect weather.

Thanks so much to Leslie and the planning committee for a great conference from stem to stern! My pix are below. I was excited to get a photo with Margaret and so glad she is with us to enjoy this year’s conference.

A number of you may be wondering about the outcome of my Maine dilemma. Well, despite the photo below of me and a lobstah (a total fake!) I ate chicken. Just couldn’t do it. But you will see that I found an acceptable substitute. And, no problem chowing down this morning’s blueberry pancakes. 🙂

As we close, my husband, Longfellow and Marley, and I are off to spend a few days in Camden and then hike in Acadia. I hope to see everyone in Las Vegas!  Jackie
