Wide Open Spaces

6-7-10-small-1


Can't believe we've been here in Maine for a week already. I think it does take some time to decompress, so being here for awhile has been good.

Yesterday we went to the Audubon Society Nature Preserve. We had a great hike, and then went to the Nature Center and just hung out for awhile. Then we had a picnic in a big, open field and watched the birds, squirrels, and chipmunks, and looked for more caterpillars (of course!) Days here are lazy, and lazy days are good!

After this hike, we toured Haven's Candy Factory in Portland, and bought the girls freshly made chocolates.

I know I keep talking about the food, and the truth is that when we get home, I am going to have to exercise some restraint in that department. But for now, I will enjoy the whoopie pies and lobster rolls, and hope that all the hiking we are doing will somehow balance it out! :-)

You may go through clean-air withdrawal when you return to home! ;-) So glad you're enjoying the trip still. Love the pics.

Oh my, Ginger is getting so big!! I bet she's just about ready to walk!

I'm so happy that you guys are having a good time, enjoying the "wide open spaces" (singing the country song in my head right now).
