This morning I had to go to the post office. Our post office is across the street from this. . . . .
It’s just so utterly amazing to me that I live here! Maine is just too gorgeous for words! And I’m seeing all for the first time in the ‘off’ season. I’m probably going to lose my mind with all the beautifulness come Spring! Also, Amelia was not impressed by the temperature. She started crying about 2 seconds after I took this. She’s an ‘indoor girl’, like me. We did stop long enough to find a pretty mollusk shell though.
And, like New Hampshire, Maine is full of dead people! I love seeing all the little cemeteries scattered all over the place. I’m not entirely sure what that says about me. . . anywho, I love the moss growing on that tall marker. It makes it look gilded!
That cemetery is across the way from this darling church.
Hmmm, I think this is right before Bucksport? I can’t remember, I just know it’s pretty!
Crazy bridge! I was a little intimidated by it, if I’m being honest.
I love all these little New England towns! I’m used to living in Utah (and central Washington), where everything is flat (and boring). I love all the curving roads and hilly villages.
Shame about all those electrical lines in this picture, I think it’s kinda cool. By the way, I apologize for some of these pictures, they were taken from the warm, cozy safety of my car. Because it was bone-chillingly cold and windy today.
This is the view as you crest a small hill on the way to my house. This view always makes me smile. I love the hills in the background and I’m addicted to these old barns and farmhouses!
This picture nearly got me arrested. Well, okay, pulled over. Just kidding. Well, I really did think I was going to get pulled over, I’d stopped pretty much in the road to take this picture and just as I was pulling back out a cop came up behind me. Yikes! Anyway, this picture is of a ‘pond’ near our house. A ‘pond’. All that white? Frozen ‘Pond’. Mainers have odd ideas about ponds, in my humble opinion. Ponds are bodies of water the size of a swimming pool where you catch frogs and spot fireflies. This, my friends, is a LAKE. It’s ginormous. Soooooo not a pond!
And our poor snowman. This almost broke my heart. The day after I slaved away bringing him to life it warmed up a bit. Then the temperature plummeted and he froze to solid (I think?) ice. But not before he lost his carrot and his coal buttons. It looks like he’s trying to reach down and pick them up, doesn’t it?? Poor snowman!
