2020-04-28 Summer in Maine by Hall
2020-04-28 Summer in Maine, submitted by Sandy Hall and introducing “Matt and Claire’s Summer in Maine”! Written by Sandy Hall and illustrated by her daughter, Gretchen Irby, this children’s book is set in Bayside. As in this example, every page will look familiar to their Bayside audience, as two young visitors explore the community and dive into summer fun. I have purchased (several copies of) the book, and it’s terrific! There should be at least one copy in every Bayside cottage. You can now bring a little piece of Bayside magic home in this tough time when we all need a smile. The book sells for $14.95, plus tax and shipping, and is available at www.baysidebook.com. Copies will also be available this summer at various activities which may take place (fingers crossed), or at the Hall’s Union Cottage in Auditorium Park.

Looking for a downwind finish with spinnakers later this afternoon.” @nyc_bayside #air #air2020 #aroundislesbororace #calmstart #sailing #turtlehead #castine #stateofmaine #penobscotbay #baysidemaine See Less

Yesterday, she made a snow person to leave behind for her mother and others! She has also drawn animals and Easter and spring-type images on the window. Her brother also arrives most days, driving a huge truck, and jumps out and chats with his mother and others. He toots his horn as he drives around the building. It’s really heartwarming to see!”
