Maine Retreat

Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer! I know I have been awol for awhile. I have missed keeping up with all of the fun things you have been doing on your blogs.
I just got back from a cool Maine retreat. That part of the country is just breath taking and the weather was a welcome break from the smouldering heat we are having in S.C.

After flying into Portland, our first stop was Camden. I love all the beautiful old homes on the bay.

The beautiful blue sky, crystal clear water and backdrop of the mountains created such a peaceful, serene atmosphere... unlike the hustle and bustle  I had just left at the airport. In my rush to get through security, I failed to remove 3 Tums from my jeans pocket.To my dismay and embarrassment, additional security was called over after the announcement that there was a white female with an "anomalie." After relinquishing my three little Tums I was able to go on my redfaced way! I really needed those Tums after that little drama.
Oh well, I guess they were just doing their job.... better safe that sorry. You never know what a Tums terrorist has in mind.
Glad y'all dropped by,come  join me at Watery Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday


  1. Maine is so beautiful. Wish it weren't such a long drive away for us.

    I always try to imagine what it's like to live in one of those big homes on a lake or bay.

  2. They confiscated Tums from you. Recently they confiscated peanut butter from me. Grrr!


    It doesn’t take an ocean
    Or a mighty sea,
    A simple little raindrop
    Is enough for me!

    I also like the jewels
    Scattered in the grass
    After summer thunderstorms
    Soak the earth and pass.

    There’s also perspiration
    Clinging to a nose—
    A sign of honest labor,
    Or so I suppose!

    Wonderful, most wonderful,
    Are the seven seas,
    But give me downy snowflakes
    Clinging to the trees!

  5. Hi there Annette, thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment. I appreciate it. Isn't Camden a beautiful town? We've been there a few times as it's not too long a drive from where we live. I love the coast of Maine! I hope you drop by again. Have a great summer. Blessings.

  6. A beautiful place!
    Sorry about the Tums. :(

  7. Someday the Tums story will be funny. I know they check people for all sorts of things, so I'm sure nobody really thought much about it but you. Looks like you went to a beautiful place and that you had a wonderful vacation.

  8. Beautiful and peaceful! Great water shots!

  9. those are beautiful houses. what a lovely place to live.

  10. What a beautiful lake, I wouldn't mind living in one of those houses.

    Tums? I never knew the airlines considered those dangerous. Very strange.

  11. Sounds like a lovely time! I need a vacation like that!

  12. What a gorgeous vacation spot. I thoroughly enjoyed your Outdoor Wednesday post.

  14. What a great trip! The atmosphere and view are amazing!...Christine

  15. I've heard about those tums terrorists... the worst kind. I can't believe I'm communicating with one! :{

    Maine looks beautiful. I've never been to the east coast. Maybe someday...

    Blessings, Debbie
