As we were driving North from Virginia toward Maine, each child had their own laminated map of the U.S. As the boys followed along our route, Wyatt got a serious look on his face. He had a question. "Why was Deleware orange on the map, but was still green and brown outside the car window?"
But after arriving in Portland and upon visiting Mackworth Island we learned that in face, different areas of the country do in fact have different colors.
Even though our trip is just beginning, Maine will forever be brilliant colors of amethyst purple and brilliant cerulean yellow-green.
This has me thinking...I wonder if our house swap friends think our beach has "a color pallet"?
What colors would a visitor notice in the natural areas of your hometown?
Interesting thoughts today.
