Notes from the Heart...

Ah, summer.  Unfortunately it isn't completely relaxing for me because I work
from home and have children -- and feel like a circus juggler at times.  But my 16
year old daughter has been in Australia for two weeks, and my 10 year old son
has been playing with neighborhood friends...and in the afternoon we head for
the neighborhood pool for a dip (where I bring my work along). Can't could be much worse!  But the only place I can truly relax is on the
Cape.  And we are going there for two weeks starting this Saturday.  I will also
take a little vacation from putting out my newsletter. No wifi on the campsite :)  
But The Heart of New England will be back mid-August.  See you then!

This Week's Stories:

Feature: Lighthouses Along the Way (Maine)
“I love the remoteness of the light on Mt. Desert Rock (1830/47) and Saddleback
Ledge (1839) Lights,” said Capt. Brenda Walker of the schooner Isaac H. Evans
who has logged 14 lighthouses in a single cruise.“Those are lights that folks can't
hop in their car and go see but they can see on a windjammer cruise.”

Recipe: Fresh Tomato Pasta Sauce
In making this sauce use only the best tomatoes, garlic and basil, all of which are
appearing now in local farmers’ markets and farm stands.

From our Archives: New Hampshire Waterfalls
Nowhere in New England are waterfalls so abundant and accessible for viewing
and enjoying than in New Hampshire.
