Until next time...
goodbye Midcoast Maine!
Thanks for 20 summers of countless memories!
The big event in Rockport Harbor: a boat launching.
This beauty had everyone gawking.
A 160-foot boat from Malta.
She's a looker!
My dad's beauty: a Hinkley power boat. Made in Maine.
Responsible for many an island adventure!
Isle au Haut: my all-time favorite island!
The girls have learned how to work the lines.
And my man always gives her a good cleaning when we return.
A visit to the fabulous children's garden
at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens in Boothbay Harbor.
A book barn featuring some our favorite Maine stories.
Wouldn't you love to have a book barn at home?!?!
Oh, my! The cutest little cousins ever!
Hydrangeas the size of pom poms!
And you know what? For the first time in 20 summers, I'm not too sad to leave all this beauty. Because for the first time, I'm headed home to a place equally as beautiful. From the rolling hills, stone walls and boats of Maine to the rolling hills, stone walls and horses of Franklin!
Oh, how I love beauty!
P.S. I'll be buried in boxes when I get home, so if things are quiet here for awhile, you'll know why! Hoping to share some painting updates with you soon!
