Severine F.’s Land in Maine

Host Severine Fleming says:

This farm is a typical 19th century homestead, first established in 1820  during the golden days of this coastal fishing and farming community.  The farm is perched up on a set of glacially  smoothened plateaus growing with the most magical hay-grasses and wildflowers, on one of the many peninsular fingers pointing out into Cobscook Bay– looking eastwards to the protected estuarine Pennamaquan river.  Most of the farm is a protected forest of spruce, balsam fir, larch, maple, birch, with patches of oaks and elms and some queenly White pines that escaped the epoch of lumber-cutting. The old barn has burned down ( leaving its boulder basement bare) but we’ve erected a Timberframe outdoor kitchen for the Farm Camp in the old style.

On a chart you’ll see that Pembroke is the heart of Cobscook Bay.  Leighton Point adjoins a sheltered cove equidistant between Eastport and Lubec, two cities/ towns built on the sardine and lumber trades, with a goody legacy of naval warfare and  smuggling– just to the south of the Canadian border line, which cuts like a zigzag across the bay– Franklin Roosevelt wanted to put in a massive tidal power installation here, but he didn’t. So you’ll be happy to get out and  watch the whales, seals, porpoises and puffins– not to mention the whirlpools.
