A Perfect Day in Maine

Our whole trip to Maine was wonderful, but there was one day early on when we were staying in Port Clyde when everything was absolutely perfect. The weather was glorious, the kind of weather where you keep repeating, even to yourself, how wonderful the weather is. The sun was warm, the breezes were cool and fresh. And for all the bookhunting I did on the trip, this was a day where our only excursion was a lovely evening walk with Lucy. We read, lazed, napped. It just doesn't get better.


I resisted the temptation to put these photos in categories and instead post them here in strict chronological order.


Lucy in the boathouse.

I didn't get very far in Wish Her Safe at Home before I gave in to what turned out to be one of the top 10 naps of all time.

This wonderful hedge screens our cottage garden from the little used road. And the garden was full of greens that we picked each night for dinner.


  1. You really need to write a travel book. You find the best places!

    I love that Lucy is in so many of the photos. She seems so at peace.

    Lovely photos. Truly.

  2. There can't possibly be any dog with cuter ears than Lucy!

  3. Heavens to Betsy! That place looks perfect. What a lovely time (and good pics!).

  4. That pup, just like her humans, clearly understands the concept of vacation!

    Lovely photos.

  5. I was thinking about how fortunate Lucy was to be adopted by you. She's having an amazing life. Gorgeous place to relax and refresh. We are heading to Maine (Portland area) next month. Terrific photos as always.

  6. What fabulous pictures. Maine looks fabulous - is it all as beautiful as that?

  7. We were in Maine way back in the 70's and it looks as beautiful now as then. Lucy is gorgeous. Loved this post. Lovely Pam

  8. Lovely. I especially like the picture with Lucy in the boathouse with that blue door.

  9. Looks and sounds like a lovely trip.
