Machias, ME: The Harvey Family

Jess and I “met” online about a year ago and have kept in touch through my other blog, and through Flickr. She was one of the first people to email when we announced our plan to hit the road and was so helpful in our journey to Maine…so it was so great to meet in person and spend a few days with her and her family. Until a few weeks ago, they lived in Bucksport, ME, but recently moved to Machias, ME to help plant a church there (Calvary Chapel).

We arrived and got the RV parked…which was no easy task being that they live at the bottom of a dead end hill with a sharp turn into their driveway….but it worked! We got settled in and then enjoyed a delicious squash/apple soup with hearty muffins before heading off to Bible study with them. There was worship (wonderful acoustic stuff with the pastor drummin’ on the djembe) and awesome teaching from the Bible. We were really blessed…I’m so glad that we were able to make it for that.

The next day it rained ALL DAY. We started the morning with some delicious pancakes…and I made some “house chai” of Rockford Coffee fame (a Bozeman specialty). We decided just to take it easy, make tea continuously all day, and chat. It was a great time. Khali and Max are homeschooled, so they got to have fun with us too. Bella was totally in love with Khali and Max did really well putting up with a cute 3-year-old that followed him everywhere. For supper, we ordered pizza from a local place, and it was yummmmy! That evening, we worked on dreading Jess’s hair. It was a 4-5 hour affair and we sure had fun :) It looks great and I can’t wait to see her hair “transform” into dreads.

Before we left, we took a tour around their property and also down to the “Bad Little Falls”. I LOVE the sound of rushing water…and seeing more Maine color was just a bonus!

Thanks to Jess, Dane, Khali, and Max for a wonderful time in Machias!
