From Miss Rumphius , by Barbara Cooney:
“You must do something to make the world more beautiful.”
“All right,” I say.
But I do not know yet what that can be.
Two things: if you have never read Miss Rumphius , by Barbara Cooney, you are missing out on one of the greatest children’s books of all time; if you have never been to Maine at the end of June when the lupines are in bloom, you are missing out on one of the most beautiful natural wonders of all time.
[Note: These photos were taken at the house my family rents every summer. If you’re interested in visiting Lubec, I highly recommend this rental cottage and you can get more info here. It’s not a 5 star hotel, but it is a true Maine-living experience and you can’t beat the views.]
