Ok, this land-locked Midwesterner totally lost my heart to a Hinckley – SW70!!! While we were in Maine, Eric took us out in his boat for a tour of the Southwest Harbor, Somes Sound and Northeast Harbor area on Mount Desert Island. I found my sail boat there!!! I’ve looked at the Hinckley website and I’ve come to the conclusion that MY sailboat was a custom order. As it looked twice as long as their biggest at 70′! Just GORGEOUS with it hunter green and all that beautiful wood. I can just see myself standing on the deck with the wind blowing my hair as we sail along! I’m in love!!! Now to just figure out where the roughly $10,000,000 will come from to pay for it. Ahhhh, reality STINKS!!!!! The front of the card is for Eric since it has to do with boats. I tucked a map of the area behind the image along with the Tide Table for the day we went on our boat ride.
The inside is for Kate. I used Blueberry Tilda for that. It was around peak blueberry season when we were there. Kate had bought some and made a Blueberry Buckle for dessert the night we were there. Let me tell you they are not the same blueberries we get here in the Midwest!!! We liked them so well that on our way home we bought two containers of them. Ok, not a brilliant move on our part. Have you tried to get two containers of blueberries 1,600 miles without them getting wet and yet still kept cool!!! In and out of motels and trying to keep the cooler straight in the car. For the most part they survived. Not quite the beautiful berries we bought but still out-of-this-world-delicious!!!
We had a wonderful time in Maine and so appreciated all the time everyone spent with us. Wonderful memories!
Now, if only this land-locked person can get over the love of MY sailboat!!! I dream about it!! Ahhhh!!!!
