SUMMER VACATION: MAINE


Hi Everyone,

Boy, does it feel good to be back (and a little bittersweet). Deweese, that paint by number is awesome! I really love the colors.

So, I'd like to share some pics of my summer vacation, which was a pretty epic trip to Maine. Nick and I headed out on what I was calling a vacation/political campaign. You see, being from New Hampshire, I have a lot of friends and family up in New England and we planned to meet-and-greet with a lot of them!

We spent the first half of our week in York, Maine.  We stayed at the exact same house where my brother got married last fall! It was great to go back. The weather was amazing and the scenery was just as breathtaking as I remembered.

My nephew growing up so fast.

My favorite photo of my cousins... taken by my sister-in-law!
We had a lot of people around the table at dinner. I love a simple table setting on vacation.

While in York, Nick and I took a day trip just the two of us. We had absolutely no plan of where to go. We just borrowed my parents' car and drove up the coast in search of lunch. That's a rare thing for us to do (not have a plan). We ended up in Perkins Cove in Ogunquit, Maine. It could not have been more perfect. Note to self: live by the seat of your pants more often, ok?




The second half of the week involved stopping in to see some friends in Biddeford Pool, Maine, and then finally to Lori's camp on a lake in Liberty, Maine.  Lori's family has owned the camp since the early 1900s!  I visited back in 8th grade, so it was a little walk down memory lane for me. While there we swam in the lake (the cleanest I've ever been in), boated, cooked, and read books in hammocks. Once I got over the pure silence and darkness (I'm a scared city rat), relaxation really set in.


Approaching Lori's camp on a moving boat, hence the blurriness. It's the only way to get there (or to swim, I suppose!)





With no running water to wash my hair for 4 days, this was my hairstyle of choice.  Notice: no time spent at the mirror to get the part straight. Too much swimming to be done!


We also had Hamlin the dog with us, aka hair twin!
Every night we took a sunset cruise with snacks and white wine.





Lori was the most gracious host! 

The end.

Love,
Blythe
