Maine Apple Sunday

First there was Maine Maple Sunday. Then there was Maine Apple Sunday! Christopher and I hit up Treworgy Farms for some sweet apple goodness. P.S. I feel like I should add that I am an apple addict so my enthusiasm in all of these photos is quite real.

Blue Hill, Maine

A few weeks ago, Christopher and I did our cake-tasting. We were only about fifteen minutes from Blue Hill, so we decided to take a little side trip.

For those of you who do not hear me talk about this three million times a day, my thesis topic is on Jonathan Fisher of Blue Hill. I have been to Blue Hill numerous times, however Christopher had never visited the little seaside town.

If you are in Blue Hill, I would highly recommend visiting the Jonathan Fisher house. It was closed when we were there, but it is definitely worth the visit. Fisher was a fascinating man. For more information, check out this website.

We also visited the Old Cemetery on Union Road. This is where Fisher is buried as well as most of his contemporaries. This was an amazing experience. I felt as if I personally knew each and every person buried there. It was as if I was visiting friends.

We ended our day trip with a tour around the peninsula. We stopped at a bridge near Conway Cove to check out an insane current.

It was a lovely day. Nothing beats a Maine seaside town in the summer.

Indian Trails Park

Christoper and I have been making an effort to explore the trails closer to our new apartment. A few weeks ago we happened upon Indian Trail Park. Indian Trail Park is a 4-acre parked owned by the City of Brewer. The walking trail is almost two miles and borders the Penobscot River. There is even a sliding hill we will have to check out come winter time.

This park was fairly quiet around sunset. My one complaint is that several of the benches had been completely trashed. This was not a problem the further we went into park, but was not a pleasant sight at the onset.

Overall I would recommend this hiking area. It is nice to have such a place so close to
