Week In Blue Hill One, Maine

I stopped at Blue Hill for the very first time in 1998, years before I thought of authoring Emilie Loring, and I’ve come back twelve times since. Emilie visited Blue Hill for the very first time in 1908 and returned for forty summers. A complete great deal happens in this small place, year after year, and it back will keep me arriving.

I’ve always wanted to visit a certain “Used Books” to remain the best way to Searsport. The shopkeeper couldn’t find any Emilie Lorings on the shelves, but I spied this box together with a tall bookcase. Her husband first got it down for me, and Bingo! On to Blue Hill, where I fulfilled Mary and Joyce for a quick tour of some Emilie-related places in Blue Hill. Jess showed us around Holt House, home of the Blue Hill Historical Society. Among Emilie’s “flapper” dresses hangs upstairs. I won’t ruin that breakthrough for you but there are a great number of shows inside.

Follow them on Facebook here! I needed a rare chance to look through the scrapbooks of Effie Ober Kline, the one-time reservation agent for Emilie Loring’s father and co-founder of the Boston Ideal’s theater troupe that brought Gilbert & Sullivan’s “H.M.S. Pinafore” to American viewers. They were seen by me at the Parker House, courtesy of the dog owner, John Bates, and when I strolled in, recognition nerves started to tingle. Personally I think sure that it motivated one of the houses in Emilie’s books. Parker House is available for rent (View it on Facebook or VRBO); stay there yourself, and find out what you think! All writing, all day.

My prize was a crabmeat sandwich, fresh strawberries, and one glass of wine at day’s end. I love getting a “writer’s cottage” and full freedom to muse, write, and create. This table photo is definitely a “before” view! My papers develop a chaos all their own. My special guest at the cottage this year was Tuulikki Loring.

We caught up on each other’s information on the outdoor dining veranda at Effie Ober Kline’s “Barncastle,” then made plans for the very next day as we loved our cottage view. That’s one of my favorite things about Blue Hill-getting to be outside the majority of your day with an awesome breeze, beautiful sights, and an ever-present feeling of excitement. Tuulikki and I visited shops in the town, ate lunch time at the city wharf, had a marvelous discussion with sculptor Jud Hartmann and his wife, and toured both relative edges of Blue Hill Bay.

This year’s beach was shale instead of granite, and Tuulikki’s designer eye found the options in it. We’d fun posing wine glasses for our toast to Emilie Loring on Facebook! The final image submitted, we repaired to the Deep Water Brew Pub for our very own toast. The day’s red sunrise yielded to story-gathering, my first try at “steamers” (thumbs up!), and an organization toast to Emilie Loring at the Slavens. Do the Pendleton is acknowledged by you House-the place at the city wharf where we ate lunchtime?

Emilie’s friends and family stayed there in the early years. Aswell as I’ve reached know Blue Hill, I make discoveries still. Do you remember the start of Where Beauty Dwells, when Di Vernon is trout fishing and Mac Cameron’s hail from the bridge causes her to fall into the brook and hit her head? He jumped from the car, gripped the rail, and leaned to study the stream significantly.
