Aside from Visiting Vinalhaven and our friend Rob in Phillips, we made a short visit to Sabbathday Lake, Maine, to visit for a bit with Brother Arnold, the Elder of the last living Shaker Village in the world. I had visited there twice last summer, once with my wife Karen, who ended up making a small ceramic tile project for the Shakers. These photos, and the ones I will upload tomorrow are a combination of two visits.

This image, in various photos I have taken, is my favorite spot in the Village. Roots from that tree had grown up above ground, and this is the (ever practical) and beautifully aesthetic solution they came up with.

A wonderful old tree and an innovative and sensitive solution with that bridge. Some lovely colours and textures in these images.

There are five left in the world, Herman. It was great to visit with them, and to be becoming friends with Brother Arnold.

I do like the fact that whoever made the pathway has considered the growth of the tree with this unusual humpbacked section...

This is most innovative, and very Shaker like

John and I are very fond of the Shaker designs, furniture very unlike what you make, would love to visit Sabbathday lake--- have been to various other villages, one close by as an interesting comparison-- Ephrata Cloisters---(not Shaker)


LOL to Trevor--don't think you could join, you need to be celibate HA HA which is why there are only 6 living members.
