When we began making plans for our trip to Bangor, we decided to see if we could spend a few minutes with my cousin Chuck, with whom we reconnected at a family reunion last July. (Chuck's grandmother and my grandfather were brother and sister ... Mabel and Joe.) Chuck and his wife live only a few minutes from Bangor, and he works at Treworgy Orchards. Back last July he gave us his card and said to look him up if we were ever in the Bangor area. So, a week or so before our trip we emailed Chuck to see if a brief visit, maybe on our way home, would be a possibility. Saturday would not work for him and Michaele, so we arranged to meet at the farm late Friday afternoon, and then to have supper with them at their home.
After leaving the Logger's Expo on Friday, we had an hour or so to relax at the hotel before leaving to meet Chuck at the farm in Levant. It's unusual for us to spend more two consecutive nights in a hotel, but this time we did, so I had some time to relax in a quiet area of the lobby with an embroidery project. I was surprised to note, on a nearby table, some brochures for Treworgy Orchards! Sort of neat, since we were headed there shortly.
We arrived at the farm and were given a tour by Chuck, who took us around the property in a golf cart, accompanied by two of his young grandsons who were visiting from Deer Isle.
