As a recent “immigrant,” I am so pleased to be living in Falmouth, a thoughtful community of people with varied ages. In our 70s, we have one car and it is a joy to arrange one’s day with a dropping off at the Maine Medical Center Falmouth campus for required blood work, then easily and safely walk to do errands on either side of Route 1, and feel personally welcomed at each locale by familiar persons.
Formerly we lived on Monhegan (38 years) and were somewhat concerned that the transition would have some impersonal and less than satisfying factors; we have found exactly the opposite. What fine town planning has resulted in a grace to life’s daily flow.
After my chores were completed, I took the bus home. What an idyllic place.
