by Barb enjoying a fabulous run of Maine weather
Our family gathered in our house in Boothbay Harbor over the Fourth of July. Because the fourth was on a Wednesday this year, we started arriving on Tuesday, with more arrivals on Wednesday and Thursday, and then leave-takings from Saturday through Monday. But for forty-eight glorious hours we were all together.
I loved reading Sandra Neily’s post about things to do in the Boothbay region, because, weird, I know, but I have done almost none of them.
One reason is we have a lot of trouble getting off our porch.
Because of the view.
When my granddaughter saw this version of the view, she asked, “Where did all the water go?” A teachable moment.
Also, on the evening of the Fourth, this from the porch.
When we finally do get off the porch, one of our favorite places is Barrett Park, because it’s a quick hit, right around the corner. The perfect place to relax and cool off at the end of the day.
And on Saturday to the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden.
And of course, there were numerous trips to town.
But somehow we always end up back on the porch.
I hope you had a marvelous Fourth, too.
