Recently I took a trip to Maine to visit my son. It was my first time
flying alone and I planned to travel alone by car to take photos and
explore. The first hotel I stayed in Orono Maine I told the clerk to give me a
"safe" room. Close to the desk and not on some lonely hall by myself.
The next morning my son called and asked me what I would be doing. I
told him I would be out and about town taking pictures. He said "Have
you looked out side? It is raining." I opened the big draped window curtain on the sliding glass doors to see a steady light rain falling and the most
beautiful view. " Don't worry about me!" I said," I
will be happy just painting my view from this hotel window!" At that
moment I made up my mind never again to ask for a safe
room... but for the best view. A few nights later I was staying in Camden and this painting is the view from
my window at the Lord Camden Inn.
