I spent last weekend visiting my sister Lindsey, who goes to Bowdoin College in Maine, and also surprising my Dad who went to visit Lindsey but had no idea I would be there. Maine was the most beautiful place I have ever seen in the fall.
Me and Linds on the gorgeous Bowdoin campus
More of Bowdoin-I must mention that the place reminded me of Hogwarts for several reasons:
*The campus is full of really old castle-like buildings and cathedrals
*The studetents are all affiliated with social houses with names like Howell House and Quinby House
*The students eat every meal together in a large dining hall
*While walking through their student union building I saw a sign that read "Quidditch Tryouts"-no kidding. Apparently they hold a quidditch tournament every year. They run around on brooms while other kids try to knock them down while searching for a penny "the golden snitch" in the grass
*The kids there all have rosy cheeks and wear lots of scarves-one guy in particular was wearing a thick, long black and white striped scarf with a Bowdoin insignia
