I know the way to Maine like the roads in my hometown. Not just the I-95 north part, but the exit to the midcoast, the stretch of gas stations in Brunswick, the turn toward Bath, the Taste of Maine restaurant afterward. And, finally, the left turn onto Route 218 and the last 11 miles to my aunt and uncle's house. I have an inner GPS, a homing signal that can lead me here each summer.
Only, doing it at night, in the fog, and I somehow missed the driveway -- yet I knew it right away. Whoops.
Tomorrow, I'll take stock of the place in the daylight.
