What do we do? Oh, my. Eat, and play Duck, Duck, Goose, and eat, and have cocktails, and SUP, and visit and catch up, and celebrate birthdays, and shuffle, and eat, and swim, and sun on boulders, and slide, and eat and drink, and say Cheese, and read, and swim, and visit the gardens, and learn, and dress up, and run, and dress down, and yell Bingo! And run, and relax, and renew and refresh.
And that’s just some of it.
Here’s a 3 minute look at this week. Like to join us?
It’s 15 miles from the Migis driveway to the center of Bridgton, Maine, well worth the extra 5 miles. (It’s 10 to the center of Windham). Nothing in particular against commercial centers, but if you need to get a couple of things done AND you’d like to see a bit of Maine, hang a left at the end of the driveway.
I picked up my daughter from a matinee movie at the charming Magic Lantern today and was reminded how much I enjoy this little town. Park on Main Street, or one of the convenient municipal lots behind the shops, and take a stroll.
Leave your car and you can walk…..to a good-sized Maine department store, to an independent bookstore, to a well-stocked public library, to a guided nature walk starting with a covered bridge, to a scenic park with picturesque bridge over the brook, to a nice spot for a meal or coffee and pastry, to the aforementioned theatre (home also to a pub) and a number of antique stores. You can even visit an aesthetician at Kathleen of Bridgton! And a little beach and playground at Highland Lake.
I have some photos here…some a bit bleak, as most are from early spring, but still gives you an idea. Add warmth, flowers and grass in your imagination for a good representation of Bridgton. Also, once back in your car, there’s a Hannaford Supermarket complete with pharmacy, so….and if you’re out late, a drive-in theatre! Retro Tuesdays…next week double feature on Tuesday is Airplane and Stripes. Laugh much?
And the hospital, and the white-steepled First Congo church, and the art gallery on Main, and the gastro pub…….
Yes, try turning left at the end of the driveway. See a bit more of Maine while you are here.
We still have some 2014 available at Migis. Call for reservations at 207-655-4524.
Tonight’s celebratory menu, and a look back at previous flag waving days at Migis Lodge through the years.
Have you thought of making a Migis Lodge holiday a tradition of your own?
