The Grand Finale

There really are no words that I could use to describe the feeling one has when one walks into this scene. I think Julie could do it justice, but I can't.

What goes "POP" in the oven?

Question: What goes "POP" in the oven?
Answer: Eggplant Pate
Joan was interested in trying a new recipie for this delicacy. She really did punch several holes in it before placing it in the oven...
Saturday we decided to head up to the Maine Botanical Gardens in BoothBay to see how things looked in October and to visit a few of the areas we had not been too on our last visit. We also wanted to see how much the fairy (imaginary kind) village had changed (more on that later). There were still lots of flowers in bloom.

When I took a picture of this carved out and polished in places rock, I didn't see the birch trees. It wasn't until I looked through the camera that I saw it. Kind of like looking at things through another's eyes...

Then I could not help but notice the reflection every time I looked.

And this is what it looks like from the other side!
This is what the tree looks like today.

This photo is not as spectactular as the one I posted in 2004, but it has in its own mood much to commend it.

Sebago Lake Basin

Joan and I love to drive around and look at the scenery this time of year. Today we went up to Sebago Lake Basin and read while we watched the sun set. The colors are not yet at their peak. It has been dry, so the rain of yesterday won't be enough to bring out the color that might otherwise be, but the glory still appears. Lynn - the sailboat is to continue the theme.

Pemaquid in August

Standing on the top of this fort and looking at the view, one can not help but think of the contrasts in situations people find themselves in. We are either fighting our battles , sailing or anchored safely in harbor.

Kayak Season

September and October seem to be the times when Joan and I get the most Kayaking in - as we realise the summer is almost over and we haven't been out on the water much.
We have been out a couple of times in September but haven't had the camera along. But we will be going out in October - and with the camera, as the color is well on its way.
The picture here was taken two weekends ago at our annual Church Retreat. We had a great time in the word looking at the book of Mark and would have gone out in one of these sailboats - had we not had to pickup the dog at the kennel. Next year we will probably bring Pepper along. She loves kayaking but has never been sailing...
