An internet search led Don and Judith to Penobscot Shores. They realized that Belfast had a familiar draw having visited for the past fifteen years, and a smaller community would fit their lifestyle. Judith especially wanted to live near the water. “Our pond at home didn’t quite cut it,” Don quips, “especially when the water level drops by four feet in August.” Don called Penobscot Shores for details about the community and learned that a waterfront cottage was available. Within a week, the couple flew to Maine. A few days later, they were under contract. The couple has joined a local church and many community organizations in the area. Don serves as a member of the Board of Directors of Penobscot Shores. “Our lives are as full as they were back home. We believe in community involvement,” Don says with a grin.
