A weekend away from… well everything!!!
I have to say that taking my laptop with me and not opening it was one of the hardest things I’ve had to do in a while. Gagan and I were in desperate need of R&R so we decided to go up to Camden, ME this labor day. We left on Friday and came back on Monday. Fortunately for us, it was also the Windjammer Weekend so the tiny town of Camden was pretty lively! We met some really great people there and had a great time.
We walked, hiked, sailed and just relaxed. Sometimes you don’t really need to do anything. This was an intentionally “unplanned” vacation which we simply loved.
We stayed in a cute little B&B just minutes away from downtown and a stone’s throw from the harbor.
When I am on the road, I love to knit. I started my sock on Friday and this is where I am today. Pretty cool right?
The pattern is Spring Forward from Knitty.com
Socks are so addictive arent they? I also stopped by this yarn store in Belfast, ME and bought a couple of balls of this bright yellow sock yarn. What is going on with me? I never liked yellow and now I can’t get enough of it. Well, atleast they will brighten up the cold wintery mornings.
Ok, what is up with yarn stores everywhere? I saw so many of these but not a fabric store in sight 😦 It’s so depressing. I did find this cute oilcloth in an eco-friendly store. See the yellow again 😉
It’s hopefully going to become a bright yellow grocery bag 🙂
BTW I loved Belfast, ME! It’s such a cute town with tons of eco-friendly stores. I bought a bottle of orange essential oil to make my own cleaner, recommended by Everyday Sewist on PR.
There is a vegetarian restaurant, Chase Daily in Belfast which was hands down the best vegetarian meal I’ve had outside in ages. I highly recommend it.
I am back now and finally caught up on my e-mails and other stuff. I can’t wait to drive up there again in a few weeks when the leaves change. They don’t call it ‘The Vacationland’ for nothing 😉
