A meeting the other day brought us to the beautiful campus of Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine.
|Hubbard Hall, The Original Library (Henry Vaughan, 1903)|
|Moulton Union (McKim, Mead and White, 1928)|
|...to Harpswell Sound.|
Finally,we ended the day with Monday evening music, now moved inside the general store due to the chillier fall weather.
(As an aside, the role of music in small New England enclaves cannot be underestimated. Almost all community halls (sometimes called "casinos") have upright pianos in one corner. Dinner dances are regular events. The conclusion of summer for many is the follies or other talent shows. Summer camps have their weekly campfires and prep schools, their all-school meetings.)
|We left with tunes in our head, pizza for dinner,...|
|...and their homemade Whoopie Pies for later.|
