September guest Don must be a true Mainer. He arrived having packed his wood carving tools so he could do some preparations for an upcoming art event. How fortuitous that he stayed in Loon (!) where this resident decoy–now named Louise–was in need of some repair. So while we thought she could be fixed with a little trimming, he realized she would lose her authenticity without more detailed work, so he and his wife Suzanne packed her off to their home in Deer Isle from where she returned four months later with a new beak and fresh paint. She had been carefully bandaged and wrapped, and now has returned to her home mantle in Loon cottage where she admires her new plumage and patiently awaits our first spring guests.
Thank you, Dr. Don!!!
That little opening in accommodations you were hoping for may be available now.
Have you called Robyn and Scott yet?
