Donnell Pond, Downeast Maine
I spent a rather raw Saturday morning Down East, getting my first look at the camp my father and C are building on Donnell Pond (in the romantically named T9-SD Township). This is not a beach vacation spot, it's built on the slope of a glacial drop, with an absolutely fascinating array of boulders strewn about the slope. It's also near state conservation land, with plenty of hiking trails available, and the kayaks will be coming to live here. It's quiet in a way my city-accustomed ears notice immediately. In short, I can't wait until it's finished, and available for summer weekends away.
