On the Summer Solstice of 2000, I lost someone very dear to me. On June 21, 2000 my mother lost her battle with cancer. She joined my father who died 8 years prior. There was always an evident loss on my mother's face after that day in 1992, but it was gone the day she left us. This box is placed in honor of my parents' memory.

Drive to Brunswick, ME. and after parking at Cabot Mill on the corners of Routes 24, 201 and 1 enjoy a day of shopping, eating and antiquing in this small gem of an old New England mill village, where one can find the beautiful Ivy League Campus of Bowdoin College.

When you've gotten your fill of spending money return to the parking lot at Cabot Mill to walk south down Route 1 to the pedestrian suspension bridge. Enjoy the views, while you feel the bridge sway beneath your feet. At the end of the bridge turn right down a grassy path framed by antique Black Walnut trees, towering majestically overhead. Enjoy the many species of birds: woodpeckers, finches, cardinals, orioles, jays, hawks and ospreys just to name a few that I saw.

Continue walking down this path, surrounded by the aroma of the Multi-flora Roses, to a grassy clearing, before you come to a chain link fence, to find a 1 ft. square concrete brick that has been painted yellow. Roll this over to find your reward. On your way back to your car, the same way you came, remember that 50 years ago two teenagers from up the road "Lisbon Way" would come down to this village and spend it in much the way that you just did.
