This is the 5 minute recap of our vacation to Maine: 

We ate lobster 4 times, visited the pie lady twice, hiked more than 18 miles, rode bikes for more than 12 miles, drank 4 cases of beer, 2 cases of wine/champagne, and I took almost 800 photos.  Some of my favorites are included below - but maybe someday I'll do a day-by-day post for anyone who is interested. 

 I would love to live in this house - the cute inset flower boxes in the stone wall out front were awesome! We saw these 5 or 10 times while we were there, and it made me smile every time! 

  A happy Jon and a happy Bubba! Picking up lobsters on our first night there! Who knew some of the best lobsters would come from the Getty? 
Can you name this location? I'll give you a clue - that's a POND behind us! 

 Our awesome family, minus Boy Wonder, on top of Eagle Cliffs! This was a beautiful hike, with some rough Granite slabs to slide/shuffle/hike down.  Views like this, were so worth it though! 

Who needs the tourist trap that is "Thunder Hole" when there is a great hole like this at Otter Cliffs?! 

 Deb at Thuya Gardens - this is part of the institution that is visiting Maine with my parents/Frankels.  Add in some champagne, and a Christmas card photo-op, and it was a wonderful afternoon! 
The light house was one of my favorite photos from this trip - although it required some precarious positioning with the camera, and avoiding falling in the ocean or a tide pool! 

I can't wait to go back again, although that long drive may need to wait 2 or 3 years before I brave it again! 


  1. I can't wait to see this year's Christmas picture!!

  2. I've always wanted to visit Maine! Your photos have me thinking about it even more... all that lobster, hiking, and beautiful scenery- sounds wonderful


Thanks for stopping by, can't wait to hear what you think!
