Life in the Big City - Memories of Maine

Life in the Big City  -  Memories of Maine

OK, we've been back for a week and I don't think I've stopped complaining about my post-vacation blues for a minute.  There is one more fun event coming up, though, before I say goodbye to my beloved summer.  We like to close out the season with a Labor Day party filled with great friends and great food.  And, since I'm really looking forward to that, I'll probably shut up about Maine now...or soon, anyway.

But, before I do I wanted to share some of the beauty we experienced there.  I'm also editing my photos of the lighthouses we visited and I'll share that with you soon.  Years ago, someone gave me a calendar with spectacular lighthouse photography and I've been a little obsessed with them ever since.  So many more to see!  This past week I also posted about the great road trip sandwich I made, my light and tasty way to burn off some of those vacation calories and a round-up of all the amazing food we ate which led to those vacation calories. :)  So long till next time!

  3. Anita! I am so glad you got to have a vacation in such a beautiful place, but I totally understand the vacation blues! Meanwhile I wish you a fantastic Labor Day party... I know it'll be a most delicious one! Oh... my motto: Summer is not over until first frost ;-)

  5. One of my favorite things to do is to take a day trip to Ogunquit, from Boston, and walk the Marginal Way. It is a beautifulspot and so relaxing and peaceful. The Maine coast is amazing...so mant beautiful, scenic spots for sure.
