Thursday night after I work, I headed for Maine and to my sweet friend's lovely beach house. It was the sturgeon super moon. We walked the beach and took pictures. We haven't seen each other much at all this summer. I have missed her. 
Sat morning up and out on the beach early for sunrise. 
It did not disappoint. It was so beautiful, 

We went out and about late morning shopping and walking. 
This is Perkins Cove Ogunquit. Such a sweet little village. 

We ate lobster rolls and walked around looking in the shops. 

At the end of the day, we walked the beach and watched the sun go down. We ate great food, put the music up loud and dance around the kitchen. I am so blessed to have wonderful friends my friend CW and I have been friends for 30 years. May we have 30 more!

When I got home the berries were loaded and so were my tomatoes 
It is so relaxing to wander the garden and pick. 

As of Friday, the weather has been glorious. So glad that horrid humidity is gone! I baked a spinach, ricotta, bacon quiche. It was completely delicious!  

And well if you are going to have the oven on and make a crust.
you might as well make a blueberry tart. yummy. 
No sign of the bear for few days. Hopefully he has gone on to the woods where he belongs. 
Have a wonderful week!

Wow those pictures from your trip to Maine are beautiful! So glad you have a good friend who you enjoy getting together with and that you were able to spend time together at her beach house. Those berries look so delicious. So glad you haven't had any bear encounters lately. I hope you have a wonderful week. It's always good to hear what is going on in your world. See you again soon!

Oh wow! Your sky photos are amazingly beautiful. So you lived the good life for a few days with your old-time friend and I'm so glad for you. I had a lobster roll when I went to my hometown last week. So delicious.
You are tempting me with your quiche and blueberry tart. I hope the bears stay away for good.
Hugs, Julia

WOW! The sunset and the sunrise would be perfect hooked rugs specimens. Must admit if I were near that quiche it wouldn't have been there for me to take a photo of. Glad you enjoyed your time away and with your friend.

That sounds like a perfectly wonderful girlfriend weekend...yay you! That sky (and your photos) are stunning! I especially love the one of the sunrise (maybe because I never see it??? 😂) I love a good quiche and yours looks amazing. I hope your wonderful berries don't lure your bearfriend back. 🐻😬 Have a good new week and enjoy your pleasant weather. We've been a little more chilly than I would like this past week. ~Robin~ (Cute cartoon!) said...

What a dream time in Maine! I love all your pics. That sunrise is stunning! It sounds like a ton of fun with a good friend. Just the thought of lobster rolls has me jealous! Our weather is the same as yours and I love to cook and bake when it's cool out. I hate the humidity and so thankful for this break. My garden is doing well and the tomatoes have been so good to pick and eat! Have a good week Cathy!
