Coastal Maine, USA . . . . . . . . .

This is where Bob and I spent today in brilliant sunshine 
and 78 degrees. . .talk about a perfect late Summer's 
day, this was it!

Cape Neddick Lighthouse known as 'Nubble Light', York, Maine,
 was built in 1879 and is still in use today.

Perkins Cove, Ogunquit Beach, Maine. . . we spent 
many a Summer's day here between 1965-1977 when we lived
in New Hampshire and Massachusetts, and always love
to come back.

Wild white roses at the beach.

Tomorrow we plan more New England travel. . . heading inland 
from the Maine coast to New Hampshire's White Mountains, 
then on into Vermont.


  1. Mary, your road trip sounds like perfection to this Texan. I'd love to be on the coast of Maine about right now. '-)
    Happy, safe travels.

  2. Beautiful! I love the Maine coast. Your photos are so clear and sharp, Mary. It looks like a perfect day. Enjoy your travels. Hugs, Pam

  3. Such vibrant, brilliant colors in all your photos! We went to Cape Cod on family vacation when I was little. It was summer but I remember the water being so ice cold we couldn't eat put our toes in it. Right now, 78 degrees sounds awesome. A beautiful area to visit. Have fun! Tammy

  4. Beautiful...just the way I remember it. Enjoy...you both deserve it.

  5. I love the coast there - have been several times and your photographs brought it all back, so thank you.

  6. Oh, I remember those beautiful places from our Maine travels! Do you realize how close you are to Miz Vee? Best wishes on your sightseeing!

  7. I think New England is my favorite spot in the US, during the summer and fall. I love these pictures you have taken Mary.

  8. In 1999, we took my parents on a trip to Maine & it was one of my favorites! I loved that old lighthouse. We went to Kennabunkport & then on to Bar Harbour where we stayed in a B&B. I would love to go back!

  9. It's too bad you had to go to New England for the reason you did, but I am glad you can make a little holiday of it too.


  10. That does it Mar, i simply have to go back again before i'm too old - maybe on my round the US trip in 2017!

  11. Oh the beauty and the colors - I am nearly speechless.

  12. Breathe taking and lobster rolls too!
    How special! The water and oh how I love lighthouses.
    Would love visiting here.


I would enjoy reading your comment - thanks so much for stopping by.
