Maine is...

buoys for lobster pots on a pier in a fishing village,

walking in the deep woods ,

islands and coves and small beaches with big pink granite boulders ,

old farm houses

and new houses on a river , peeking through the trees.

And a surprise in a bathtub ! Thank goodness not real, but made of cast iron - Mainers can be very quirky and quite funny.

There's the ubiquitous moose - this one in a house made out of a barn,

and this one - what's left of it - in a laundry room in the attached barn of an elegant house from 1850.

Not all the critters are large, here's a pretty bug we saw on a walk by the sea.

And, last, one of the many coves, as evening is painting a dreamy scene .

We love Maine !
