My Maine

It's been a month since my trip to Maine but i still wanted to share my photos with you guys. 

My Dad’s grandparents bought a house on the coast of Maine eons ago. . . The great grandparents have long since passed but the house, “Mary’s Point,” is still standing, in all it’s original glory. I’ve traveled there every summer since I was a baby and I love it more than words.  It’s all early morning fog, ping pong on a disintegrating table, excursions to Five Islands for lobster lunches, crab races off the dock (it’s exactly as it sounds. . . everyone finds a crab in the seaweed, and then we see who’s crab scrambles off the dock first: Ready, Set, Go), and jumping into icey cold ocean water.

Reassembled post partum.  a seagull's lunch.


mmmm, Thanks Eric!

Jumping off the dock!! I used the "Diptic" app to get this affect. 





Love in Rockland, ME





I capsized while trying to hand my iphone off to my mom in the other kayak. . .thankfully I managed to hold my iphone above water as i went under.  Priorities people! 



My family . . . missing Alden. . . 

One of my favorite photos from Maine this summer



Two men and a dog with sea legs (she likes to kayak too)

What amazing pictures, looks like a bit of a magical place. You must have had som,e fantastic adventures there through out your life. My equivalent to this is travelling to family in the lake district every year. Especially at christmas.
