Hello! And Happy Summer to Each of You!
We are renovating the lake house and it can get to ya. We had to get away from all the Drywall Dust! So…we hopped into our “Get Away Van” and off to Maine we went. Good bye drywall dust!
How fun for us! I could just squeal! New England was a fabulous delight! I can only give you a sneak peek from what I captured with my iPhone. (I know… I know… I still have pictures from Europe to share and now, pictures from our Maine adventure. But guess what…all those pictures are still on my good camera. Time is of the essence for me right now with house renovations. I will post all the lovely pictures one day very soon! I promise.)
Okay, now back to what matters and that is this post! You All Must Travel To New England! There is so much to see and do!
Judy from New England and Garden and Thread would totally agree with me. When you click over to her sight you will see the beauty that she shares from there.
If this is your first time reading my blog… You need to know that my sweet, sweet man and I are rock hounds. Therefore, our first stop was Sterling Hill Mining Museum in New Jersey. Look at what we got to see!
I will be sharing more with you about the incredible Sterling Hill Museum in another post. There is so much to show you.
Since we were driving… we got to stop and take in the sights!
After a day of antiquing we stopped in Brattleboro, Vermont.
We found a great brewery along the Connecticut River. Whetstone Station. Their food and craft beer was delicious!
A great barn or two were seen…
We saw many churches with steeples but I am saving those for a special post!
The Lily’s were blooming in their full glory. I have to say they were everywhere! And we truly loved every single one of them.
Booth Bay, Maine was beautiful and we stayed right on the water.
When in New England a must is LOBSTER! I got to choose my Lobster that I ate for dinner.
Next stop was Bar Harbor, Maine.
Acadia National Park is located at Bar Harbor, Maine. What a spectacular park. We were able to explore it for two days. Some hiking took place…
We took a ride to the top of Cadillac Mountain to see this view…
Oh boy! It was so windy! No fans used here…
Jordon Pond at Acadia National Park is a peaceful place to relax and rejuvenate. It’s tranquil beauty will make you pause.
On our way out of Acadia… we stumbled upon wild blueberry picking! We had fun picking and nibbling right along with a few deer.
While traveling we must always enjoy the local samples of food. Of course I had to have a Lobster Roll and some Clam Chow-da!
But all good things must come to an end…
Back to the drywall…
This room has now been painted. Some after shots will be posted!
I sure hope you are having a wonderful summer. Make sure to get out and explore… no matter how busy you are. It’s the simple pleasures that make our lives whole!
What are you doing this summer? I would love to hear!
