Our first two days in York, Maine, were chilly enough to require polar fleece and space heaters. However, the walking was still good!
Kathleen, this one’s for you!
Here’s a wider view:
So, until the sun came out, we bundled up and set out on foot for some sightseeing. Look at what we found!
Doesn’t the pulled taffy look like a gorgeous swath of fabric? (for a larger version of the final cut-and-wrap process, click here) The candy making process is completely viewable through The Goldenrod’s storefront windows and there is never a lack of a crowd. For me, there’s a thrill in the old-fashioned mechanical process. Nothing robotic. No computers required. I noticed I wasn’t the only baby-boomer oohing and aahing! Must be some kind of generational comfort thing plied with happy penny candy memories?
At last, the fog cleared, the temperature soared, and the sky was blue again.
So I’m off for some beachy walking.
