I'm back! Did you miss me? Here's what I've been up to...

First - here is the anchor that I ran over in South Addison Harbor. Scraped up the fender. Tire okay. The entire anchor was 22 feet long - how did I miss that, anyway?????

Look! It's Janet, Marian and Donna at Quoddy Head Light - I had my first summer company this weekend. This intrepid trio came up late Saturday, we had a big dinner and a bit of a slumber party and then Sunday hit the road for Lubec. We did the lighthouse, visited some art galleries, watched children hold relay races carrying a 20 pound salmon (Could I make this stuff up?), walked on the beach and had a dinner out. We came back to Sweet Pea Cabin for blueberry pie and then they left......suddenly Sweet Pea is so very, very quiet!

This is the entrance to one of the beaches at Lubec - the Rugosa roses are all in bloom and the air is heavy with their scent.

Janet and Donna scanned the Lubec harbor for seals and eagles (or were they looking across the water for hot Canadian men???) while the remants of a dory and a lobster pot are trapped in the seaweed at low tide.

Yup - that's a dead old salmon in his arms. I told ya.

Good food, good laughter, good friends. Add a beach, a lighthouse, and the scent of wild roses.
It doesn't get much better, does it?

Just figured you were busy doing something fun. Are Canadian men hot? If so I'd be looking for one too. Sounds like you had a really good time! Glad you are back!

You'll come to enjoy those quiet times after visits from company...a place near the ocean in Maine is never quiet very long in the summer you know! Enjoyed your post and pics as usual, glad you're back!

I need to know more about the anchor. Did you take it home with you after you ran over it? Was it attached to any hot Canadian men? Did you give it a swift kick for getting in your way?

Hope you enjoy the peace and quiet!

I was in your "neighborhood" Saturday for a joyride through Ellsworth, Gouldsboro, Winter Harbor, Milbridge then back up to the Airline and home via Brewer.

There was virtually no traffic on Route 1! We could have zipped along at 80 mph and not be stopped.

I always like to stop at the 5 & 10 in Winter Harbor since I never know what kind of stuff I'll dig up.

But if there were any tourists around, they must have hauled ass to Bar Harbor - a place I avoid from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Hope you're enjoying your new home and coverage area. Beats hell out of dozing off during Pittsfield Town Council meetings! LOL
