Being the proud pilot of a Cessna floatplane, it had always been a goal of mine to spend an "end of summer" weekend at the International Seaplane Fly-Inn, held annually in Greenville, Maine. My wife, who cursed my flying our entire marriage, but rejoiced at the notion of a peaceful weekend in the beautiful state she was born in, reluctantly agreed that this year we should follow my dream. We found The Birches Resort in Rockwood, Maine and instantly fell in as much love as two people can be with a resort. My heart was more so overjoyed to learn that the quaint, cozy lakeside spot came with a convent marina where floatplanes such as mine were not only allowed, but greatly encouraged. My wife was ecstatic at the sight of the rustic log cabin overlooking the water where we were to stay. To this day, the musk of campfire smoke and the majestical view of the sunset on the calm lake tickle my sense in a manner which assure me we will be back soon to recreate that magical weekend....or perhaps week.
