It’s official! Kiah and I will be participating in June’s Art Walk here in Portland, ME next Saturday on June 7. I set up a website which has photos of some of our work but is still a huge work in process. Please check it out!
It was so beautiful this past weekend, Mike and I decided to travel to Georgetown, Maine, precisely Reid State Park. First of all, I just want to voice how excited I am that Maine hit the 50’s temperature range on Saturday. That’s a BIG deal, at least for me. To celebrate, we packed up the pups and took a drive north about an hour and landed in this beauty:
The rocky Maine coast is gorgeous. After a thrashing of a winter, it’s refreshing to explore the outdoors again. The pines are green and the water bluer than I remember.
We went to Reid State Park which is wonderfully preserved and a photographer’s dream come true. There are two primary beaches within the park. We visited the Mile Beach. The sand is smooth with big grains and white sea shells. It was so lovely, I didn’t want the day to end.
We walked around the entirety of the park and soaked up some much needed Vitamin D for a change. The pups had a good time as well, smelling shells and eating washed up seaweed. They also kept attempting to drink the ocean water and realizing it wasn’t to their liking. It was pretty entertaining for us humans.
If you ever visit Maine, I would highly recommend Reid State Park if you enjoy natural environments and being seaside! Hope you all had a great weekend as well!
This past weekend, we made a getaway vacation out of Rangeley, Maine and stayed at a quaint Bed & Breakfast after cross-country skiing on Saddleback Mountain. Get all of that? There were many firsts to be had there.
Our first B&B experience was really nice. At first, it feels strangely familiar, like visiting an aunt’s house and using her sheets and bath towels. I wanted to hug the owners and ask for permission to borrow a car or warn them we were staying out past 9. The room was cozy and decked out with quilted blankets, soft worn towels, floral wallpaper and framed Parisian styled quotes with cliche sayings like “no place like home” or “a clean bath is a good bath.” It worked. We felt comfy and satisfied with home cooked foods, honey tea and warm sheets. Kudos to the North Country B&B!
