Mmmmm, lobster

I spent some time in Stonington, ME (the self-proclaimed lobster capital of the world) a couple of summers ago. The only place we could get internet service was at the Blue Hill Public Library, and Blue Hill was a great little town, too. And we visited Mount Desert Island, with its fantastic and kid-perfect Sand Beach:

The Longhouse - a "modern take on the Native American Longhouse" - is lucky enough to be right in the middle of all that fun. Its architect owner/designer and family are keeping track of their progress here, and this is what their house looks like at the moment:

Check it out.

Isn't that Blue Hill Public Library just THE best!

Great library. The kids section was a dream - spent a few rainy days there. Michael picked out a book for us to read (Arlene Sardine - anybody read it?) that looked like so much fun. The end was so crushing I had to change it on the fly. But a great library nonetheless.

chris...thanks for the nod, like you I'm really enjoying blogging about our process.

Our studio is in the center of Blue Hill across from the forge. The duck crossing in the center of town was Robert McCloskey's inspiration for 'Make Way for Ducklings'.
