Maine Vacation 2012 Repost (Maine Photos)



The best things are nearest: 
breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, 
flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, 
the path of God just before you.
~ Robert Louis Stevenson

This is a Re-Post from our Maine Family Vacation last year (2012) - I hope you enjoy the pictures!

*******************

We returned just about 11:30 PM on Saturday from our Maine vacation.
Yesterday, I had an overwhelming urge to sleep which I just couldn't shake. 
Even though my Pastor's message was about one of my favorite Bible characters (David) and his teaching and preaching right on, I caught myself nodding between notes and quotes!
 It was all I could do to stumble home to bed after. 
I am feeling re-energized today and have been tackling the laundry, organizing, unpacking. 
Well although I had  My Maine Bucket List, the week was overflowing with God's own Bucket List for us. 
Oh, friends, I am richer today because of my week away, which was a sweet gift from God. 
I am grateful for the prayers of those who lifted us and we were blessed in so many ways.

Here I will share some SNIPPETS of our Maine vacation.



Finally arriving...



A delicious gift was delivered to our cabin by our
 thoughtful Maine-iac friends!Yes, it was Good!



I adored this mug and drank from it every morning.
Quiet time by the lake, gazing at the mountains...



This was our very own private beach (more or less) 
and I sat here in the morning and listened to God's voice
whispering sweet peace to my heart through His beautiful Creation.



My Girl standing in Coos Canyon: Byron, Maine


This is Angel Falls- we hiked in and it was quite a nice hike.
The falls are deep into the woods- a hidden gem.
Afterwards we enjoyed, ice cream and milk shakes
 at the Coos Canyon Gift shop.
Yum. Vanilla milk shake for me. Just fessing up. 


We enjoyed some canoeing.
Although when Hub and I do stuff like this,
it really should be filmed for "How Not To Communicate" OR
a horrid Sit Com about marriage.
The banter is such that I am
 grateful God didn't tip us just to teach us a lesson.
We got it together. Eventually.




Relaxation - a whole new level. 



A barn turned bookstore. 
Treasures here, I tell you!


Visited my favorite garage for treasures and bought these!
These were for making my first Altered Books.
 I thought the girls needed a craft for a rainy day-
 Although rain did not come,
we still started our Altered Maine Books 
which I will share in a later post!


My Girl and I enjoy a sunset canoe ride.



Bike ride to Mt. Blue Trading Post for some...what else- Ice Cream!
My Hub and Girl ride-I walked and picked flowers on the way back.
God also gifted me when I surprised a White Tailed Deer- much to my joy!



My Girl, The Duck Whisperer...


Final Sunset...Friday the 13th.
Last moments on the beach with friends before leaving.
Tubing and Jet Skiing...so much laughing.

One final view of the cabin as we left...

See you next year!

  2. Omigoodness--so heavenly!! My objective is to retire in ME--completely the opposite of everyone else who all want to run south for the golden years, I know--but I love what I love and the farther north, the better! Great shots--definitely makes me want to take a trip there NOW!! Haha! And Nova Scotia, right?? How incredible! Who would ever want to go south??? Hugs!!

  3. I loved seeing these photos! Now I want to go to Maine. I don't think I've ever been there even though I grew up on the east coast (NY). Get rested up girl!

    Blessings and love,
    Debbie

walk along the shore with me and leave your footprints in the sand-
I'm listening, friend...in November I will not be replying so often, but instead slip quietly over to your place for a visit. ;)
