I took the above three pictures on Sunday, September 6, 2015, at ‘Thunder Hole’, Acadia National Park. It is part of a rock formation to the right of ‘Thunder Hole’ (looking towards the Bay). No, you can’t see it, as such, from the steps or the walkway. Well, we don’t, when we are at Acadia, just stick to the well-trodden paths. We do like to clamor among the rocks and cliffs — and, in case you are wondering, you are permitted to do so, at will, albeit at your own risk. Teischan, of late, really has become addicted to rock clamoring and rock climbing. Most of the time I am trying to keep up with her. So it is she who finds these interesting places on the rocks.

You can’t deny that there is a definite resemblance. I recognized it at once. So I wanted to share it with you. Enjoy.

I know roughly where his mansion is in Wolfeboro, N.H.

It is by Winter Harbor — near what used to be the quaint, sloping Wolfeboro (Lakes Region) Airport.

He has, for obvious reasons, never invited me to his place for ‘drinks’ (non-alcoholic and non-caffeinated) since I am, in his rich books, a 47%er. No harm. I wouldn’t have him around for drinks either. Given that I circulate in strange circles, I do, however, know folks who have been to his mansion. I gather he likes to give ladies ‘architectural’ tours of the house and show them all the bedrooms he has. Bully for him.

The Marriotts, fellow Mormons with the Mittens, have a palace close-by, with a HUGE, and I mean HUGE, granite, 3 berth boathouse. I have delivered takeout to them when I had WOWNH — Waiters on Water (WOW). Mittens never ordered any takeout.

Well that looks like Lake Winnipesaukee in the Summer for multiple reasons: the gray gabled roof on the boathouse, the lush greenery, the STONES all along the bank and the low hills in the background.

It is a shame he didn’t give Wolfeboro and our lake a plug in this picture.

Rockland, Maine, Breakwater Lighthouse & The ‘Haven’ Islands, Vinalhaven & North Haven Beyond


Anura Guruge, laughing, picture November 16, 2011.

Deanna, whose father was a lobsterman, is from Cushing, Maine. Rockland, ME, with its rather nice (but unbecomingly snobbish) Farnsworth Art Museum (associated with the Wyeth’s), is the nearest town to. So over the last 10 years I have got to know Rockland quite well. We hadn’t been there in a few years until yesterday. Deanna had a family ‘thing’ so the girls and I had an hour on our hands. So I took them to the Breakwater Lighthouse. It would be the first time Teischan, six, had walked to it. It was a beautiful day. We weren’t dressed for it, but it wasn’t that cold. [Deanna ‘knew’ the elder Wyeth and her aunt is ‘Sirithat he painted.]

There was an intriguing mirage affect on the islands. See the first two pictures. Pretty cool. They looked like they were floating.

The breakwater is 4,300′ (7/8 mile) long. They started work on the breakwater in 1881 and finished it 8 years later.

They brought the huge slabs of granite (I think) from Vinalhaven by ferry. They used a total of 730,000 tons. In the 1880s it cost $750,000!

Google Map of Rockland breakwater (the appendage sticking out), looking east showing why you see islands in the ocean, something I still can’t get used to. Click to ENLARGE.

You can see the mirage effect here … as you can in the prior picture.
