Hey! Thank goodness warmer daffodil weather has arrived! I’ve driven the old Tudor here and there when the sun has been out and the roads have been dry, it’s great to get behind the wheel while imagining how the drive to Maine will be in June. For me and several others in the Club it’s hard to believe (I’m not actually speaking for them of course) that the MAFCA National Lobsters and Lighthouses Tour will be starting in Kennebunkport, ME, in a mere 5 weeks. I’m packed and psyched!
