Let's get this show on the road!

Smile! Retirement is on the horizon!

One of my favorite places


This is Two Lights Park.  Hint…there are 2 lighthouses, but I only took 1 picture!  This is the area where they have this great little “shack” that serves the most incredible Lobstah Rolls and Fried Clams.  You sit at picnic tables overlooking the Ocean.  It takes me back to my childhood.  Every Easter after church, my parents would pack a lunch of Egg Salad sandwiches and juice and other things I have forgotten, and we would get into the car and drive to the State Park section of Two Lights and have a picnic.  It’s the place that all out of town visitors would be taken to see the “Rock Bound Coast of Maine”.


This is a sample of the rocks.  It was foggy that day, otherwise the view would have been incredible.  Sasha loved the rocks,  she also charmed lots of people!

She has been in heaven on this vacation…the temperature has been wonderful, 70’s day and 50’s night, and very low humidity.  She travels well, except for one little problem.  When we got to the hotel, she refused to get into the elevator.  She has an issue with tile, linoleum or wood floors, and an even worse problem with elevators.  I think she looks at it as a small box with sliding doors and a moving floor.

Vacation is almost over, we have one more visit scheduled, with my son and his family.  Back to work in a week….blahhhhhhhh!

Life on vacation!

The fire pit.  Most nights we have a fire.  The weather has been perfect and no rain (except one day) so we get to sit in the backyard and have a fire.  There is something so calming about watching wood burn.  We have lots of different wood, but my favorite is cedar.  The smell is incredible, and it keeps mosquitos away too!

Now for the important things of vacation…FOOD!  This is a sampling of what we have eaten in the last 2 weeks!  We went back to Woods on the waterfront and had more seafood.  I had the steamers…one of my absolute favorites, and Paul had the fried clams, as usual!  We have eaten so much since we left, I hope I can squeeze back into my uniform when I get back!

Off we go to Maine today…I get to see some friends that, unfortunately, I only get to see once a year.  We talk frequently, but phone, text or Facebook, but there is nothing better than face to face!  I also will go to the cemetery where my parents are buried.  It’s a beautiful place, peaceful as most cemetery’s are, and had an incredible view. It will be a good trip.
