Hello Maine!


Hello Maine!
Originally uploaded by Sylvia...Sometimes.
So ahoy, and off we go! We thought we would check out the whales first. In a brilliantly warm, sunny clime we headed out to see the big guys. Extra layers were there, but let me tell ya...a change of 25-30 degree temperature in an hour, in a boat buzzing along at 33 mph will put a chill on! NO sighting...at least that we saw. But did see a seal colony, a bit intimidated with our approach. Big Daddy seal half committed to loft himself off to safety...then had the choice taken away as his weight tossed him in. Later, tide out, we walked the sandbar to Bar Island. Even later, Cadillac Mountain...a view from the highest point on Eastern coast. Spectacular!
Maine, obviously, is known for it's lobsters. And I did indeed tackle the guy. Succulant the meat, but that timale...yeck! Hey, didn't send any parts flying across the room as I manuvered so a successful encounter.
Jonathan was to install an art piece in a unique home...which took little time, but totally cool of the house/grounds keeper to give a "tour" of the house.
Well, I have to say that any where one looked, the view was spectacular. But I think we both agree one of the highlights was the oceanarium...I'm talking holding in your hands sea creatures. Okay, you are probably thinking fish, tadpoles? Well let me tell you, sea urchines, starfish, horseshoe crabs, cucumbers are neat...and not what you would expect! But later for all that.
Home again...whew...hey! it's good to go...good to be back.
Where ever you are...check yer head gear. One does want to be fashionable!
Ta!

Love the photo of Jon! Sounds like you had a great time. You two deserve it. As for lobster, I've never eaten it in my life. My mom has an aversion to them and passed it on to us kids. She calls them (along with shrimp and crawfish) bugs of the ocean. I can't look at them without thinking of insects. Silly, but true.
