Baby Loons! yes- 2 of them

These pictures were taken July 12-19th. There were two baby loons in 2008, we had 1 baby loon in 2007 as well.

The sad news is we lost one of the baby loons, unsure the cause of loss. But we still wanted to share photos of when they were just days old. Enjoy

taste of Dorset

Every 1st Sunday of August the town of Dorset puts on a eating festival called "taste of Dorset" which draws thousands of visitors to the area. The main street is closed off, the live bands perform polka and other folk music, and all the restaurants have sample food for dirt cheap...The food is simply amazing, all the other shops open up with crafts and such.

This is a must see event if you can handle the crowds!
