14 to 17 Sept. 2006 - Big Hitty was invited to make a guest appearance at All this, and Hitty too, a seminar presented by the Stockbridge Library Association, in Stockbridge, Massachusetts this weekend.

The first two photos show her traveling on Thursday from Great Cranberry Island to Northeast Harbor, Maine on the Beal & Bunker Mail Boat.  Great Cranberry Island is in the background.  Bruce Komusin is sitting immediately to her left.

Big Hitty waits at the dock in Northeast Harbor.
The Beal & Bunker Mailboat is just below her.

Waiting while Wini Smart gets her car from the parking lot.

Big Hitty stayed Thursday night with Wini in Northeast Harbor.  Next day, we started the trip at 9 am.  Wini studies the map at a rest stop on the way.

We arrive at the Massachusetts state line.

And finally to Stockbridge itself, around 5 pm.

Just for this event, Original Hitty was brought upstairs from the basement archival room to the library, and photos of her were allowed.  Big Hitty and Original Hitty pose together
