We have arrived!

July 6, 2011 § Leave a comment

Finally, we made it to Five Islands! We’ve been here since last Thursday, but what with the unpacking and putting up temporary fencing to contain the beasts, there’s been no time to blog. Also, the only thing I left behind in Maryland was, yes, my camera. So I don’t have any nice inside shots of the house yet. Suffice to say, it is lovely with the new countertop, finished pine floors, and the trim. I hope to get a camera in the next day or so and will start posting some pictures.

In the meantime, here are some shots we took with the Blackberry at the Fourth of July Parade here in 5I.

The parade arrives at Lewis Road

And a shot of our friend Jim with Robert and the dogs at the Five Islands Lobster Company. This was the dogs first time dining out and they did pretty well.

So that’s all for right now. I’ll post pictures of the cottage and a more detailed account of our first week soon. We are learning about the history of our little corner of Five Islands from our neighbors, the Tharps. Tanja Tharp has very kindly included some wonderful details in the Comments section of the previous post. Thanks Tanja!
