WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?
It was AWESOME! After two days I realized I don't need or miss my phone and iPad. It's more social, We're actually talking to one another.
In Eastport everyone knows everyone. At home there are too many people to think about knowing everyone. Technology isn't the enemy but how we use it. I don't like how it's controlling our lives.
The sunrises and tides are amazing! I love the beauty of the area, exploring the local shops, searching for sea glass, attending the symphony and more.
Setting aside my phone and trying new adventures was completely refreshing.
and relish your independence.
Cultivate a deeper awareness of your surroundings
new skills that
don't require technology.
