We're back from some time at our cottage on the coast of Maine and we had a wonderful time. Our daughter came along too since her husband had to work so it was nice to have her along especially as an antiquing buddy for me. By the way, Andrea, this is what most of the coast of Maine really looks like-rock bound.
We did a bit of everything. Here are DD and DH beach combing on our little slice of shore looking for sea glass. My daughter and I have been collecting sea glass for many years and have definitely noticed a sharp decline in what we find. Stupid recycling we both declared!
We had a picnic at a local lighthouse one gorgeous day. Peanut butter and honey sandwiches sure taste good sitting on rocks on the shore on a sunny, breezy day.
And speaking of my daughter, Caryl, she posted this picture of herself on her blog so I borrowed it. She must have originally borrowed it from my photo album since this is my picture. She thinks it was taken the summer before 4th grade and this is at our Maine property. She was so proud of that darn fish. She caught a lot of fish that year, which really bugged her older brother. Anyways, we are very lucky to have such a wonderful place to recharge our batteries. I read Anne Morrow Lindbergh's book, Gift from the Sea while up there and I loved it. Her writings about women having to recharge their lives and the concept of "replenishing solitude" struck a chord with me. Our cottage is somewhat isolated and it's a good place to recharge which I did. More pictures in the days to come.
