The Retreat is a tiny little house (about as big as a house boat) that is for rent on Spruce Point by the night. Tim and I stayed there for our anniversary a couple years ago and I for one can’t wait to go back. The house is very private, and the vista is all rocks and ocean. Feels like the Maine version of Carmel. Ever since we stayed there my favorite mental game is ‘What would I take with me if we were going to move into The Retreat’. What would make the cut? The books? The photography collection? The prayer bead collection? The rock collection? The sand collection? Mildly disturbing, when most of your things have the word ‘collection’ attached.
