Since we began building the Lodge, one of the things we have paid close attention to, was to make sure that we take the time to appreciate how far we've come. I think that is probably why we started the tradition of our "Cocktail Garden Tour" at the end of almost every working day from early spring until the snow falls. It gives us a chance to just admire how the gardens are coming along and to look up at the Lodge itself and admire how handsome it is with its seasonal plumage, be it daffodils and forsythia in the spring; beebalm and catmint in the summer; or mums and swiss chard in the fall. For the past five years, we have been so intent on getting projects done on the Lodge that we have not taken much time to visit our favorite haunts, such as Pemaquid Point. The photo was taken just at sunset and is just one of those moments you are lucky enough to capture in a picture that each time you look at it, you will know what a beautiful world exists beyond Oak Hill.
