…is hard to keep up with. As a matter of fact, I haven’t been able to do it. I am trying to get back into the swing of it because it has helped me in writing my Cranberry Report column for the Working Waterfront newspaper, published monthly by the Island Institute. Trying to write a daily post on a blog keeps me looking around for what to photograph and what to write. I open my eyes a little more to the possibilities around me. This helps because once a month I wait until the absolute last minute to come up with an idea for my column. The piece I wrote a few weeks ago was just published online, and I had a blast writing it. (Thank you post a day challenge!)

This is the time of year when the ferry gets pretty crowded and my thoughts turned to all of the baggage that gets loaded and unloaded from the boat as we make our way back to the islands. It doesn’t matter if the load is from a day of grocery shopping or from arriving for two weeks of vacation. It still takes effort to keep track of it on the ferry.

  1. I love the ferry. I sometimes take the one from Portland to Peaks island when I visit up there. It is fun watching people load groceries, cars, bikes, all manner of things really. A few times we took the mail boat out of Portland. That was really fun. Just to watch everyone living their island lives. it is so different from anything I know.

      The ferry is definitely different. And I like it about 90% of the time, which is a pretty good percentage! I’ve never been to Peaks, but I hear it’s nice out there. Hope it’s nice for you in the Berkshires!


  2. Is this the road to the Maypole?


    • Barb Fernald

      Hi Dena! It’s actually the road to the Coast Guard Station, since that’s where Bruce and I walked this afternoon. The roses on the road to the Maypole are HUGE this year!!

    Ahh, baggage shame. I’ve never really thought about it in this context. Although, I will admit I’ve felt a bit of baggage anoyance when people stow everything but the kitchen sink in the overhead bins of a plane. I love getting this glimpse into island life!


    • Barb Fernald

      Baggage annoyance because people who stow more than their share in the overhead compartments have no shame!
      I do love my island life.

      Ah, Susan. You get to avoid any baggage shame by barging your vehicle over to Great Cranberry!!
      Summer craziness begins this weekend. Have a great time with your family this weekend. Especially your adorable granddaughter!
