I finally got out to do some fiddle heading! My friend Hailee Wolph was over doing some dog training for us. When the session was done, we decided to take her 3 dogs and 2 of mine out with us to hunt for some fiddle heads. While two of our spots had mostly gone by, a third turned up a respectable feed. What a fun day - we hiked, we talked, the dogs swam, the sun was out and warm … what a perfect day with a beautiful friend. :)


Bill and I went to Joe Dupere’s Celebration of Life at MOFGA. So many folks attended, everyone was immersed in great memories of Joe. I hugged Kyle tight.  There was so much amazing energy in that room. It was beautiful and heartbreaking.

Saturday, May 17, 10 am - noon

The hike will start at the trailhead in downtown Unity, across the street from Inland Family Care, and will go through the Unity College Campus, through the woods behind the college, through Woodsong Farm's forest and fields, and out to Quaker Hill Rd. A shuttle will be available to transport hikers back to downtown Unity at the end of the hike. Watch for signs of deer, turkey, moose, coyote, fox, porcupine, snowshoe hare, owls, hawks and other smaller critters along this trail. A high spot in Woodsong Farm's field, with a ledge outcrop, provides a wonderful view of Lake Winnecook (Unity Pond) and of the mountains to the north. On a clear day, Mt. Katahdin is visible from here. Spring is late this year, but some wildflowers may be blooming along the trail. Watch for lady's slipper, bunchberry, wild violets, trillium, Jack-in-the-pulpit and more. For more info contact: Buck O'Herin, 589-4311, buckoherin@fairpoint.net
