  1. I think I spied a person wearing an article of "fleece" clothing in the first picture. Thank you for the pictorial tour - enjoyable. The campus seem so spacious and uncluttered and I'm not talking about few people in the pictures. Again, thank you.

    1. When I go back to my alma mater and at most colleges today I swear a Neutron Bomb was detonated. All the people are gone but the buildings still stand.

  3. Your picture tours are always enjoyable but this morning I especially enjoyed the comment on someone spotting a fleece garment and the Volvo sign. Let's all keep our sense of humor.

  5. Ahhhh, just beautiful. The architecture of the college buildings and the homes shown are awe-inspiring. So peaceful. I think I was fleeced as I never noticed the fleece. Thank you for posting. Anne.

  6. Brunswick, another charming New England town! A childhood friend of my brother from the Seekonk Massachusetts attended Bowdoin College he went into the ministry after graduating. I recall visiting the Joshua Chamberlain home in town seeing his Civil War relics! He had quite a career serving his country teaching at Bowdoin College and a Governor of Maine.

  7. My son's alma mater. Thanks for the tour, such a wonderful campus. In addition to its beauty and its history, Bowdoin is considered to have the best food/dining experience of all US colleges. Much of their produce comes from their own organic gardens.

    1. The “food/dining experience” alas seems to have developed into another inter-collegiate competition. Room and board rises as schools compete and attempt to lure students with sushi and ice cream (every day!). We’re all in for locavore-ism; veggies, fruits and meats. But there was a time when “steak night” was something to anticipate. By not having all sorts of food choices available all the time cafeteria dining had a bit of an edge. It was a small reminder of others less well off and - it made college town restaurant visits with parents and relatives more special.

    2. When my son was attending and we would visit, I was so starry eyed about it all I didn't even think of that. Good point!

  8. I wish I would have attended a university that had trees that changed color in Fall. The Live Oaks were "green" year 'round. ( Lovely trees, but no color change.)
