Schoodic Point Picnic
Homecation Day 8. It was a gorgeous day so we packed a picnic and took it to the Schoodic Peninsula which is part of Acadia National Park where we were on Day 6. The entrance to Schoodic is in Winter Harbor – about 30 minutes from home. (Click on images for a larger view.)
This is the Winter Harbor Lighthouse with Turtle Island and Cadillac Mountain in the background.

A Sandpiper (I think) scurrying about on the rocks.
On our way home we drove through Prospect Harbor. This is the Prospect Harbor Lighthouse built in 1891.
We made a detour through Corea and found these geese lounging along the harbor.
Corea – one of Maine’s most picturesque village and harbor.
Only two more days of my homecation left. I’m trying not to think about it!

On the First Day of Spring
This was my greenhouse at the height of winter. The snow on the roof makes it look a bit lopsided, but the greenhouse stood strong to February’s heavy snow. It … Continue reading
