Hi bloggers - did you miss me? My husband and I have just returned from a trip to Maine. We started at the southern end along the coast and worked our way slowly up the coast to Bar Harbor, visiting some of our favorite places along the way. Thought I'd share a few pictures today of our adventures.
Lighthouses - other than lobster, that may be Maine's other claim to fame. Here are a few we visited this time around.
Nubble Light, in Cape Neddick, near York
Marshall Point Light, in Port Clyde, on the St. George Peninsula
Pumpkin Island Light, now privately owned, off Deer Isle
and the often-photographed Bass Harbor Light, in Acadia on Mt. Desert Island. In order to get this photograph, you have to walk down many stairs and across lots of rocks! No, that's not me in the corner.....
Of course, we ate lots of lobster, and scallops, too, and we stayed in some lovely inns at each stop, one of them Pilgrim's Inn
, built in 1793!
And all along our drive we saw some beautiful scenery.
These little boats get the lobstermen out to their boats to check their traps.

This was taken in Acadia National Park, near an area called Otter Cliff, one of my favorite places in the world.
We had glorious, sunny, cool weather, as we always do in September. And just before we arrived, they actually saw the Northern Lights in Acadia! And there were patches of beautiful fall color starting to appear here and there, especially as we got further north.
Needless to say, we are refreshed and ready to get back to normal. Now to get my mojo in gear again........see you soon!
