We stand and prune the naked tree,
While all our love and interest
Seem quenched in the blue-nosed misery."
Ruth Pitter, 1897-1992, The Diehards, 1941
On this final day of November in Maine, there was no sign of "blue-nosed misery." Indeed, the temperature hit 65 degrees, and I took advantage of that fluke of weather to ride to Scarborough and Old Orchard Beach.
And while the weather was indeed marvelous, the scenery was dramatically different from that of July.
Deserted in the Fall
Busy in the summer
Canoeing in the water
Canoeing on land?
