Wet start

We started our first day of vacation in Maine with rain pouring down on the thin-planked roof over our head in the simple cabin that has been our off-the-grid destination for the last 3 years.

I never got dressed. We lived on the products of our garden and the contents of our refrigerator in Manchester, all packed in a large cooler that stands outside on the wet deck.

We listened to The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, a Victorian mystery read by several great actors. I listen while knitting a complicated Aran sweater for myself, my vacation project, while Axel learns how to turn handwritten lines into typed text on is phone. We may be off the grid but we are not off our devices.
