Gidget’s Grand Adventure: Taft Point

Gidget’s Grand Adventure: Taft Point

Hannah and I packed up Gidget and headed over to Taft Point on Flander’s Bay yesterday. After a busy Saturday working, I needed the activity and fresh air. Storybook-style mushrooms lined the trail to the shore. Overcast skies loomed low over Flanders Bay. As I...
September Friday Beach Walk

September Friday Beach Walk

The wonderful thing about Hannah teaching at the high school this semester is meeting for Friday beach walks. It’s been a couple of weeks since we took the time, and it was a lovely September afternoon. The fog rolled in and out. Hannah’s sea glass find. A...
A Day At Milbridge Commons

A Day At Milbridge Commons

This past week was challenging in a way that leaves you exhausted at the end. Every task a struggle, simple things were all but. One small example was my race to Bangor to have my car serviced on Friday – a 1:45 minute drive one way. Halfway home around dinner...
Kvetina Monarch Hatchery

Kvetina Monarch Hatchery

My friend, Christina Gantz of Kvetina Wildscaping, has taken the concept of raising Monarchs to a new level. She first told me about her plans for a Monarch nursery over the winter. Today, Hannah and I drove over to her hatchery to take a look. It was magical. While I...
A Magical Evening

A Magical Evening

The beach was calling our names tonight. Hannah and I rushed through dinner and headed over to Roque Bluffs. The sand and waves have a way of smoothing rough edges. We paused along the way to watch this heron who took exception to our presence. A flock of Common...
Scarborough Marsh

Scarborough Marsh

I’ve longed to visit Scarborough Marsh, enamored by the pictures others have shared online. Hannah was up for the adventure, so we had a short mother/daughter vacation this July. On a Wednesday, we meandered our way along US Route 1 to Freeport, browsing...
A Wander at Old Farm Point

A Wander at Old Farm Point

This week my work travels took me to Lubec. I stopped at Old Farm Point to enjoy my brown bag lunch. This is a new park that recently opened and is part of the larger Cobscook Shores park system. A mown path leads you along the edges of a large meadow. There’s...
Wild Geese on the River

Wild Geese on the River

For the first time in 15 months, I’m back on the road traveling again for work. It’s fun to be driving through rural Maine, audible story on the radio, camera by my side just in case. Yet today was a tight schedule, so there wasn’t time to admire the...
Cutler Harbor in the Fog

Cutler Harbor in the Fog

I joined Hannah this afternoon on an impromptu outing to capture some video for a project she’s doing at work. As we drove east, the patchy sun we’d enjoyed all day turned to fog. We stopped in Cutler Harbor, where I snapped this image of boats peeking out...
A Saturday in June

A Saturday in June

The morning began warm and sunny as I enjoyed my coffee on the porch. I often struggle sitting still and just being. This morning was no different. A Yellow Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly in the lilacs caught my attention, and then I was up and puttering. Still in my...
Lubec to the Pike Lands

Lubec to the Pike Lands

Hannah’s feeling the crunch of her last few days at home, so I suggested a beach walk. She chose Mowry Beach in Lubec – one of her favorite spots for hunting sea glass. The tide was out, and the meander was lovely. Still feeling energetic, we visited the...
