Home from vacation

I am back home 
from a wonderful vacation on the ocean in southern Maine.
Great sunny weather, long walks on the beach and great seafood.  It didn't rain a single day we were there. 

Super sized Gulls from all the fishing scraps

We ate at this seafood restaurant , The Rising Tide, where the lobster and clamming boats came in and sold their catch. I had the sweetest steamers I have ever had.

We spent hours walking on the beach and I saw such great things looking down at the sand.

The waves made these beautiful trees in the sand at low tide.



Amazing jelly fished washed up on shore.  They looked like giant Tarantulas.



some beach combing treasures

Endless stretches of sand at low tide

Picturesque fishing boats in the harbor


Now that I am home I am thrilled that summer is still here in Upstate New York with the blue skies and sunshine.  What a dream come true this summer has been.  
I want to thank all of you for the kind vacations wishes I received before my vacation began.  It was indeed a refreshing change.

  1. Beautiful pictures, Mary! The "trees" in the sand picture is definetly "framable art". Isn't it amazing how a good vacation can do to the soul? So glad you enjoyed yourself!

  2. I agree, I love the sand trees! Welcome back Mary! The photos give the feeling of a most enjoyable and soul rejuvenating time. Did you truly rest, or did you pack clay in your suitcase? :)

  3. Looks like my kind of vacation. The beach. Your beach is a little different for me as the sun is supposed to set not rise from the ocean. I have only been to the east coast once in my life and it was very different for me being a west coast girl. Thanks for sharing. The jelly fish are like art.
