More Highlights of the Trip Back East
On our drive from Connecticut to Massachusetts we spotted this tanker.
I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
An Olive Oil tanker truck!
Another novel idea. It's been so long since I've seen this living in Alaska~
Apples that grow on trees!
Meeting up with blogger friend Corrine from Dosfishes in Massachusetts.
We had such a good time that we availed ourselves of their wonderful hospitality on the way back through.
Aside from her wonderful art, this gal can cook too!
We made it to Maine to see the folks~ It's nice to have a cousin that owns a seafood restaurant in Bar Harbor! "The Fantail" if you happen to be in the area. I recommend the Lobster mac 'n' cheese and the steamed clams. Goes well with Blueberry Ale.
The beginnings of fall colors on our beach walk
nom nom nom, a seaweed eating rock!
Nothing like the evening light on an autumn day
The first bursts of color
One of the vignettes at our seaside camp.
I come from a family of collectors.
Blue Hill view from our cottage
Stonington, Maine after the tourists have left.
A quiet scene
This is what you get to look at when you're stopped for bridge construction
"What is hip? Do you think you know"
An idyllic rosehip shot
Scary cat for Halloween
I remember this building from childhood, I'm so glad they preserved it.
A quintessential piece of Maine nostalgia.
We made it back to Alaska from our New England trip. We landed smack back into the beginnings of winter~ snow that's covering the ground and staying, grey skies and ice. The leaves are long gone.
Soon though, as it gets colder it will be less grey and we'll have sparkly sunny short and very cold days and with a bit more snow cover we'll be able to cross country ski or snowshoe the trails near the house.
I'm in the midst of my winter pre holiday shows with some Anchorage, Alaska bead shows and a few more Fairbanks shows before we head south for the winter. The trip back east was a nice extension of the fall season and of course it was nice to be able to help out the folks and spend some quality time with them.
I'm finally starting to catch up with some blogs since I've been on limited internet access for over three weeks now. ~~~~~~~~ Stay tuned for my upcoming ~~~~~~~~
F I R S T B L O G V E R S E R Y Giveaway which will be announced on October 30th.
