Mile Marker

It seems the Hittys are developing a penchant for old Mile Markers.  Hitty Kate Robertson is visiting for the summer and heard about the first stone they found.  She was captivated by its age and significance and was able to see it for herself.  When Hitty Sparrow told her she knew where another one stood, it was inevitable that they would visit and be photographed there:

The Maxwell Hittys are looking forward to a summer of Friendship and Adventure, with a bit of Shade and Lemonade mixed in!  We hope you are, too!

In Stonington, Maine

The fog had rolled in the day Hitty Jean and Hitty Sparrow traveled to Stonington.  The landscape of Coastal Maine was transformed – it now posessed a cool and quiet beauty that was quite welcome after the heatwave the Hittys had endured earlier in the week.  Here they are near the wharf in Stonington:

They took a walk through the tiny town, enjoying the shops and stopping for some Halibut Chowder as they went along.  Yum!
As they walked up the street, they were stopped dead in their tracks by this:

Could it be?  Yes!  Located in a park in the center of Stonington, is a tiny town, perfectly sized for Hittys!  How exciting!!!
Hitty Jean and Hitty Sparrow checked out “Ben Sturdee Groceries”:

Hitty Jean really wanted to move into this house with the most perfect front porch:

The Hittys trolloped about the little town, delighted with each and every building.  Too soon (as it always seems) it was time to go…

P.S.- A sign in the park tells about the houses:

We hope you have enjoyed our Postcards from Castine, Maine and the IGMA Guild School!  Hitty Jean has been declared “acceptably proficient” in miniature bookbinding and will return home shortly to continue practicing.  (She will require LOTS of practice…)
