Today we ventured to Deer Isle and Stonington. My former editor, Mary Murray, had taken us there once and we have wanted to return. Scenery is stunning.
We did walk around Stonington. Two women run a coffee roasting and brewing company and have a unique way of roasting. I chatted with the two of them—learned more about brewing coffee. One asked how I drank my coffee, when I drink and what kind of coffee I usually drink. That gives them info to suggest a coffee for my taste. I love the coffee there. I drink coffee all day long. I can drink and then go to bed 15 minutes later and sleep the nite. I am fussy about coffee choices. My coffee maker (not a Keurig!) grinds coffee then brews it. I like fresh coffee! Passion evident here. The coffee shop is 44 North Coffee. Check it out!
We also travelled to little shop called Nervous Nellie’s Jams and Jellies. The jams and jellies in themselves are worth the trip. BUT the spot is decorated with a caretaker’s metal statutes. The place is indescribable. No really, I cannot possible do justice to the cacophony of images created by statutes. Do look at the photos below. It is whimsical, colorful and downright hysterical.Little kids would love to run through the “Storyland setup.”
Creativity thrives here! The jams and jellies are tasty, too. Fun place to visit.
