We love to grouse about winter in Maine. That’s when we aren’t saying, in the middle of a blizzard or a minus 20 snap, “Hey, it’s winter in Maine, what are you going to do?”
We love it. We know we do.
And to prove it, here are some photos. And if you think that I’m just throwing a bunch of random photos that I took with my iPhone down because I’m strung out from writing writing writing, yeah, maybe I am.
Even so, look at these photos and tell me what’s not to love.
Happy Valentine’s Day (two days late) Maine!
Ferry Beach in Scarborough. Winter was just beginning. Love that low sun and long shadows.
This is on my way to the town dump. I probably have a million photos of this view, all seasons, all times of day. But the camera never does it justice. For instance, with the naked eye you can see Mount Washington in New Hampshire, but it’s barely visible here.
My love affair with the State House continues.
I’d been living in South Portland for more than a year. My first night back home I walked down to Day’s store.
I like sunrises as much as sunsets. This is out my back porch door.
Lights in the windows in winter always gives that warm cozy feeling.
It’s so great to be able to walk right out of the front door, throw on the snowshoes and enjoy a beautiful day outside.
These guys next door to my house are waiting for summer.
Belgrade Stream. Caught this one coming home from the grocery store a couple weeks ago. It was just there.
