Little Piece of Heaven


Going to Maine is like my favorite fleece: the people and the memories just wrap me up in warmth and it feels like home.

I’m not sure from where I copied those words, but they sum up my feelings about returning to Maine.  Perhaps I wouldn’t love it so much if I were here all the time, but for  five plus months it is my little piece of heaven where all the stresses and concerns of life are diminished. 

So, what is it that makes Maine so special?  Well, there are a lot of things, but here are a few of my favorites.

  1. Spent many summers at Little Sebago Lake, as a child. Ice cold water from the kitchen pump, sent to pick wild blubs for pancakes. Even an outhouse! Great memories. Love your blog!

  2. So glad you were able to go this summer. I was afraid the rehab would prevent your annual trip. Enjoy every minute of it!!!!!!

  3. Are y’all back there already? Enjoy your summer and maybe we’ll come up that way. Enjoy your summer discovering new feelins’
    Lots of hugs, Carol

  4. You had me at lobster rolls 😉 I remember reading Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing many moons ago and they holidayed in Maine. Would love to visit but is is SUCH a long way from Sydney!

  5. Your boat is so beautiful! Do you put it in dry storage for the winter? Maine is such wonderful contrast to Houston, I know you love to escape to a totally different climate and environment. I envy the abundance of lobster as we have such a scarcity in the South. Have a wonderful summer,

  6. I must admit, I’ve never actually been to Maine… which is pretty crazy, because I grew up not too far away on the east coast! It’s still a goal of mine to get out there some day, and some day soon!

  7. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO glad you are recouperating in your fabulous, fave place! Have a lovely summer, say hello to my cousin, Catherine K, and see you when you return to Houston! Hugs….and thanks for this wonderful post.

  8. I always enjoy sharing Maine with you. Hopefully I’ll be able to enjoy it in person some time. Is there a problem at all with bugs there…like mosquitoes or wasps?

    • This time of year there are black flies which I do my best to avoid. Later, there are some mosquitoes, but they’re not so bad unless you are in the woods. I understand this year ticks are quite a problem so I’m staying out of grasses.

You make my day with your comments
