Waking up by the Sea

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Waking up by the sea
Settling down into this moment
Silently sitting on the misty Maine shore
While my senses fill
with morning fresh saltiness
Squawking gulls
Symphony of lobster boat motors giving deep throated gurgling by their traps
Out of sight in the whiteness so thick that I can only feel, but not see, the sunshine.

Gentle breeze caressing my face with the cool, foggy air.
Waking from slumber to the Atlantic revealing herself to me.
Waking to solitude,
Waking to peace,
Waking up.

    This is why I'd want to retire to Maine. I have always loved the peace that the nature up there brings.

    Welcome to Maine the way life should be.

We came to Augusta from UK on a contract for 2 years we have had no desire to leave. We have lived in Augusta for almost 50 years and this is where we will stay.
This year has been the greenest year ever for us, I wonder how the fall foliage will be. Pat in Maine.

The waterfalls have been magnificent this year and flowers are amazing.

    We visited friends in Steuben, Maine and had a great time. We stayed right on the coast.
