Friends with Beach Houses

We were able to go to Maine this weekend. A friend of ours who started out as my husband student 24 years ago and became part of our family owns a wonderful business called The Belle of Maine in Wells Maine. It is a wonderful down home place to stay everyone is friendly and fun. As you can see my husband got to put his feet in the sea.  I love this picture!                                                                                                                                                                
 We Went to York beach and toured Stonewall Kitchens. lots of amazing foods but they also have amazing gradens and plantings.
 Such as these pots so much prettier in person,but take a closer look.........
 The large pots are planted with high bush blue berries and parsley. Now why didn't I think of that?
 and you can not go to York and not visit the Goldenrod. A very fun candy store.
 Where you get to see them make salt water kisses right in the window.David stocked up on his favorites and of course so did I now where is that tread mill again??????
 David's appetite was so good, we ate lots of Maine seafood. We had so much fun we would laugh until we cried with Jim he is so funny.
 and during all this we were protected my Louey the Belle of Maine Bulldog He was so funny visiting everyone and getting loved by them all.  Smile for the camera Louey!
What a blessing friends are!

Is there anything better than sitting by a fire with friends telling stories...especially if they have a good sense of huor too?? Eating seafood is only second to that! The sightseeing looks wonderful...have fun!
You hubby looks like he is have a great time. I love the picture of his feet in water too. Glad you are having a good time! May it be renewing and restoring!!

It looks like you guys had a ball. Stonewall Kitchen is a treat in itself isn't it. Take care and have a wonderful week

I have been to York twice and loved it. The first time was over a Fourth of July weekend and a motel owner with no vacancy offered her beach house for the weekend for the cost of the room!
Such a great place!

Glad that you had a good time!
