Another Columbus Day spent in Maine

Like last year, I spent this past Columbus Day weekend at Skylands, my home in Maine. It was glorious weather -- blue skies, barely a breeze, and temperatures in the 50s and 60s. The foliage was not quite at its peak but very, very close. Joining me in Maine was a small field television production team, headed by Gary Nardilla and Laurie Hepburn. They filmed four lovely segments in four days and I, of course, worked on both Friday and Saturday.

One of the segments was a piece about the Maine Coast Heritage Trust, a charitable foundation whose goal is to protect and preserve the scenic and ecologically important coastline of Maine, its vistas, and natural beauty for posterity. Many areas of Maine -- many thousands of acres and many miles of coastline -- have been granted, eased, or promised to the trust. We met up with David MacDonald, the Director of Land Protection at MCHT, and received quite an education. Please have a look.

Also, don't forget to visit The Bride's Guide to see newly posted photos of my assistant Liesl's honeymoon!
