Back in Maine
I feel good … I feel fine … Arnie and I are back in Maine on the coast I sailed so often as a child. This year marks the bicenquinquagenary of the town we use as our base. Bicenquinquagenary, you ask? I agree. Not only did I knot know what the celebration of 250 years was called, but I cannot pronounce it now that I know.
We had a scout-and-shoot day with our two newbies, fun ladies, and scouted and photographed along the way. Eventually, late afternoon, we ended up at one of Maine’s iconic lighthouses where there were banners draped along the picket fence in honor of the unpronounceable celebration. This one is for our Italian friend, Mattia, who has adopted the US, and Maine in particular, as his home away from home.
As more of our group arrives, we invited them to join us down on the inn’s pier for wine and photography before heading off to dinner. I never tire of the reflections from the piers. Their patterns dance in the water, ever changing, and while one anticipates, there is always that element of surprise in what you capture.
The sun faded, and the sky turned beuatiful, gentle colors, Mother Nature at her elegantly simply self.
We enjoyed dinner outside on the deck outside our fabvorite fish shack. Lobster, and lobster rolls, fresh salmon and other fish, sweet potato fries, etc. Everyone sated, we watched the not-quite-so-Blue moon rise. It still looked pretty full, and the light glowing on the water was wonderful.
A great way to end our scout-and-shoot day.
