December is my favorite month for a multitude of reasons. The chilly afternoons are met in comfort with layers of wools and Scotch plaids. The warm glow of our Christmas tree casts a lightshow of multi-colored shadows dancing about the living room. Free time is spent circling my atlas, at the dining room table, with potentially successful January ice-fishing spots. Occasional glances up at the frost-covered windowpanes reveal the glimmer of freshly fallen powder. My spirits are lifted as I look forward to a weeklong vacation and time spent with family.
There are few guarantees in life, folks. But I guarantee that a visit to Freeport, ME. will not only put a smile on your face (perhaps not so much after the credit card statement arrives), but the trip will put you in the Christmas spirit. Where else will you find a chiseled, bigger-than-life ice sculpture of a raccoon steering a snowmobile or snow-covered tents on the roof? Below you will see a few photos from December 2010. Come to Maine.
