Decent late-period Ruger print of Augusta, Maine [gmap] with some nice small touches. Among them: the delicate spandrels of the box-girder bridge, the stacks of logs by the sawmill, and the secluded couple pleasure-boating in a gondola.

I have a friend who lives just up the Kennebec River, and she makes the best carrot cake I've ever had. I gave the recipe to my mother for safekeeping. Someone remind me, and I'll track it down and post it here.
