We are in love with Camden! It has everything from lovely old homes with beautiful doorways to stately elms everywhere. Much like Wiscasset. And gardens everywhere even to flower baskets on the camp [...]. We are going on a tour of several big estates and their gardens on Thursday. One is Bok of Florida fame, and Dodge with 8 gardens. Went today on the boat to Islesboro. Lots to do! Brought your package along and enjoy it! Louise".
