Gramie and Pep Are Tired..

We picked Sweet B up on Friday morning and headed for Wells Maine. We stayed at the Belle of Maine that one of my husband's first students owns so it was so fun to catch up. And B loved the salt water pool a lot!
She did get on the beach but decided it was to cold and wanted the pool instead.

The next day we headed to York Wild Animal Kingdom where she saw tigers...

And walked among the butterflies, this blue one from Africa is so pretty and when it folds it wings it looks like this...

And as my 7 year old grand daughter explained it looked like that to scare any predators.  
Beautiful tigers... but her favorite???

Yep goats she and pep are buying the feed and she fed each baby while talking to each one we had to finally get her to move on to the other animals. I hadn't been there since her mother was little and they have a much larger selection of birds and animals.
On the way out of the animal park we walked over to the Golden Rod to show her how the taffy is made (We love pressing our noses on the window and watching the process )and how it tastes. Very yummy is her verdict.
After we headed to friends for pizza and a game of cards which she loves.

Some down time she grabs my phone and I have about 20 selfies and a video of her, funny girl!

On our way home from the beach we stopped at fun spot
She makes her fist spin and wins a 1000 tickets! so in the end she had 1800 tickets! she got her self a watch and a few other goodies.

Today our last day we head to clark's trained bears in Lincoln NH. This is Pep saving her from the wolf man on the train

Wolf man looking for some help in his mine.
They have bear shows and acrobatic's. We went mining for gold 
and splashed the people on the bumper boats.

On our way to drop her off at her other Gramie's we headed across the kanc so scenic and wonderful. My daughter and Son in law are on a 10th anniversary trip so we are taking turns having her. I have no idea where 10 years went but glad to have the time with B.

After I got home started some pasta sauce from all my tomatoes.
It is happily bubbling on the stove. I have my feet up on the porch and resting. 
What a fun few days, we saw friends and had cookouts, we played cards and had pizza, We swam and swam and went to a couple of great parks. A great 4 days.
The beach was beautiful but had a pretty bad thunder storm Sat evening with down pouring rain. I hear we are headed back to the heat yeck!
 have a great week.

How fun to have Miss B for that long. You had a wonderful time..and that selfie made me giggle! I googled the Kanc and that road is amazing too! One day we need to go back out that way. I remember as a teen my parents taking us to Vermont and NH on a covered bridge tour. We went to lots of them. Janice

That looks like a fun weekend with Miss B, and that is a beautiful area.
We went to Clarks with the kids one time and always love driving the Kank.
I get tempted to go to the mountains, always nice to be able to walk on the trails and see the falls and things that Bean can do.
Seems most beaches on the coast allow dogs at certain times only till later in the season.
