  10. It's Augustus Aquatic! Mermaids and puffer fish, clamshells, and lily pads. Must be his Atlantic roots. He was born near the Messalonskee river in Maine but spent summers at our cottage on the bay near Acadia National Park. I'm glad his yearnings are being satisfied. He's really found a great home with you folks!

    P.S. Candace is coming to visit Alaska next so I may have a chance to have a visit with her!
