I got to the beach midafternoon. I shopped some on the way down.
I stopped over to see my sweet friend Donna. We may or may not have gone for a drink lol.
After I got to my friend's beach house, I took a picture of sunset
it is called a solar pillar; it is caused by tiny ice crystals suspended in the air. When the conditions are just right the hexagonal crystals of ice float horizontal and scatter the light that is coming from below and it creates this vertical beam of light. Pretty cool right!
Saturday it rained but it did not dampen our spirits. We headed out early for the day. This is just outside of the little village of Kennebunkport Maine. This was a fishing village now crazy expensive but so beautiful.
Beautiful homes on every
This is a tiny sampling of the decorations.
Not only that there were gingerbread houses with a train going around it.
The detail and work amazing!
So beautiful and so lovely to look at and the store smelled amazing.
We went to a couple of church sales and got some goodies.
This is a hand carved cookie mold It is a little dark on the edges as I just washed it as I have every intention of using it or at least trying.
I mean where else would you see a full size sock monkey?
At first, I thought it was someone in a costume but nope just a sock monkey.
We went into a string of little shops that use to be cabins people vacationed in. This one had a beach buggy in it. So, fun it had cane woven seats in it.
We had craft time we made these with Maine seashells.
Well all good things must come to an end. Sunrise this morning was 6:58 so late but it will get later before we start the other way in a few weeks. I was the only person on the beach. It gives you such a different feeling from summer.
And colors oh the colors.
I am very blessed to have friends who are happy to share their beach house.
We truly ate our way through the weekend we started with clam chowder and the food kept coming lol. This is a business sign as we were waiting for our turn to get a morning croissant. This sign is so me.
So, I will leave you with 30 seconds at the beach. Enjoy and breath deep.
Have a wonderful week. I would love to hear about your adventures.
