Magical Maine

The weather was unusually warm and beautiful for this time of year in the State of Maine.  A trip was preplanned to visit lighthouses as is my normal thing to do when I visit family.  Never before have I seen such beautiful sunshine with a stream of fog dancing in and out of view sometimes allowing me to see more of the tall buildings in the background.  It was a game of "hide and seek".

The fog kept drifting in and out as if following the rhythm of the tide.  This park bench invited me to sit, unwind, enjoy the ocean breeze and the view it presented.

So, I obliged!

My "Delicato Mitts" came in very handy!

I felt as free as this kite, a popular thing to do by the breezy ocean!

Even the ocean rocks were majical!

My PIC (partner in crime) for lighthouse runs is Willie.  I was matron of honor at his wedding many years ago.  His beloved wife, and my cousin who was like a sister, passed away in 2006 at the young age of 49.  Diane is always in our hearts on these trips.

The icing on the cake was when I stopped at a store and the music was from the era of my high school days.  It was a trip down memory lane. 

I love my home state.  The people are so friendly and a hello to a stranger will most likely evolve into a 20-minute conversation. 


  1. Beautiful scenery and lovely pics showing off the scenery. One of these days I'll make it East. Renate

  2. Beautiful, beautiful, thank you, and seeing the smiles on both of you all the more beautiful! Welcome home!

  3. I must visit Maine...it's #1 on my list of places to visit, but we never seem to have time for vacations these days. Someday...

  4. These photos are breath taking! I LOVE the new design of your blog with the compilation of photos at the top.
