(Pictured above: Roofers from Young's Roofing begin ripping layers of shingles off Inn at Long Lake's front facade. Two sides down, 2 to go!!)
Yes, it is getting pretty messy around the outside of the inn and as much as I am a "Neat-nik" the replacement of the inn's roof needed to be done. The inn is closed, of course, and the workers are really nice guys. The weather has been "iffy" with strong winds and I pray for their safety. We had to remove the awning, too, as shingles from that high up can puncture anything (I'm staying FAR away!! Yipe!)
Every couple of days I make them some cookies and they really appreciate it.
Still on vacation, reading cookbooks, sleeping liberally, and visiting friends that were "ignored" (but not forgotten) the last few months (ahhh, yes...such is the lot of the Maine innkeeper).
That's all from crisp, windy Naples!
