Cruising around Casco Bay!

Had a great time at the Sea Dogs game last night with family and friends thanks to Cash who got us a box . Today a great morning around Portland Harbor, a cruise around the bay, lunch at Eventide where I had my first oysters. Not so bad, guess I'll be trying them again. Portland is such a fun city to walk around with so much to see and do. A surprise while in a store to hear someone say my name and sure enough a young lady from Castine. Small world!

David's promise!

Two weeks ago this big boat was moored in Castine and David told me he would buy me that boat provided ?????. Today we were having lunch in South Freeport and there the boat was . I thought it might be waiting for me, but guess not as we're not aboard, but in Portland instead. Cash got us a big box for the Sea Dogs game tonight and loads of our family will be there. Should be a fun and interesting night. Wonder if the big boat will be in our front yard tomorrow?

Glorious summer days!

The weather seems so perfect, sun with a cool breeze off the ocean. Summer folks to visit with at lunch time on the town dock, an afternoon of reading on the deck, riding with the top down. Priceless!

Roses in bloom on Argyle Landing!

When I first bought here in Castine there was a driveway down to my house off Water Street and we were told that was called Argyle lane. Love this old barn that Ben is restoring and the rose bushes in the front yard. Always a joy when they come into bloom.

Saturday in Castine!

Babysat August while his mother went to help someone train in at Gallery. Good news was they were very busy, bad news I still had August. Not really, he's great. Two muffins later he was sugared up to meet his mom. David and I played nine, well he did and I did short game, and now lobsters for dinner.

One of the prettiest villages in Maine

Just a beautiful day in Maine! Had to make an emergency trip to Ellsworth this afternoon that interrupted an afternoon of golf but Michelle needed a ride home in order to get to Gallery B's opening at four. Tonight show features Hannah Bureau and Louise Bourne called , "The Weather." Now that appropriate for Maine as it changes quickly as one knows.

Morning gave way from fog to sun which is always enchanting. A good trip to the dump is helping clean this place out of stuff . Lunch on the patio and then nine holes of golf. Today I was hitting 150 in and so far so good. No pain for which I'm grateful.
