Our First Days in Maine

When we first arrived in Maine, it was in the high 50’s, sunny and beautiful. Driving North to Bangor I was taken by the beauty and peaceful feeling that has continued to stay with me and Matthew. Our first night we stayed in a comfy hotel with a beautifully Christmas decorated lobby with dark woods, burgundy colors, and just the warmest inviting feeling of any hotel I had been in. What a first impression. I went to the store a few miles away and bought some lobster bisque soup, a blueberry bismark, some good cheeses and other special items for our dinner. We were tired of McDonalds.

The next morning we headed to our friend’s home in Princeton, Maine where we spent a couple of days and nights. We got to bunker down with them in a snow storm (as my friend Neysha put it)… it was fun to feel the warmth of the fire, enjoy fellowship together, coffee, the kids playing together throughout the house and watch the snow fall.

After a couple of days we came to our furnished rental. It had not been dewinterized so some of the children sat warm in the vehicles while they dewinterized it. It was 35 degrees in there.

Pretty Maine Coast

I wonder if the big ones taste as good as the dungeness from the west coast. p1030723A little snow blizzard we had the other day. It was 48 degrees yesterday with rain so it’s all cleared up. p1030730 Funny, the snow was less than an inch over the rest of the property. p1030734 The view from our back doors. p1030737 Pretty Maine coast. We are on the very south end of Pleasant Point, just over the bridge… in case anyone wants to look it up on Google Maps. p1030738 p1030747Pretty view
