More Of Maine!

I’m sitting here watching the CMA show which is rare for me. I am behind on who is who in country music that I feel like a visitor from another planet right now. It’s just not the same music anymore which is why I don’t know who is who.
Wanted to share some more pictures of our trip with you while my computer is still plucking along. Slow but still breathing. Kind of sounds like I am talking about myself.
A lot of you ask me on the last post where was the cowboy when his house flooded while I was in Maine. He is a hall of famer cowboy and quite sought after so he travels a lot doing whatever a cowboy does on the road. hahaha  Anyway he too was not home so the water along with the mud made a big mess.
Speaking of cowboys my old Clint Eastwood’s new movie  Trouble With The Curve comes to theaters Friday. I am looking forward to seeing him again on the big screen.
Now let me show you some of my photo’s from our trip.

Pemaquid Point Lighthouse is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the state.  As you can see from the pictures I have taken it is worthy of it’s popularity.

Some of these pics were taken inside the lighthouse and reflection of the glass shows. It was very small at the top only room for four people and with the big light in the middle it was crowded with four of us up there.

Here Christi is coming down the tower of the lighthouse. It was the only lighthouse that allowed you to go to the top where the view was spectacular but scary has heck going up and down these narrow steps.

Sorry my pictures are not in very good order. If you click on the picture you can see so much more of it.
Hope you enjoyed one of our outings. I really took too many pic’s and now I am going to have trouble
trying to decide what to share and not. lol
I do have to share with you another time our fun experience in front of Steven Kings house in Bangor.
Hope you enjoyed these photo’s.  Words are hard to describe just how breath taking this state is especially along the rocky coast line.
Sweet Dreams

PS
I noticed after posting this the pictures are cropped off quite a bit. I really should try and change my blog where I can show better pic's but I am so afraid of playing around with blogger.  For a better look just click on the pic.

The first picture is begging for a frame. Did you dance to country music in your younger years? I sure did and miss dancing to all that good country music.

so pretty I have never been to that light house. and it is pretty cool to go to the top. Looking forward to stephen king's place I saw it once a very long time ago.
He also has a place in Florida where we got sometimes for a vacation on Siesta Key.
looking forward to more pictures.

Your photos capture the moody feel of the lighthouse, and I love Clint Eastwood too, and look forward to his next film.

Your pictures are really "frame worthy" shots! I love the one of Christi on the stairs too..she's so sweet! Thanks for all the nice photos. I love the little house behind the lighthouse. I could live there!

Sares said...

I just love lighthouses! I always wonder about the people who used to live in them and be responsible for the lights. I would imagine coming back down the stairs is NOT the highlight!

Maine is beautiful. And the scenery, with the sky above you and the sound of waves licking the rocks, is as you say...breath-taking! I'm so glad you got to visit!I think those of us not from it sometimes take it for granted.

Olga said...

You took some beautiful pictures. That rocky coast is worth seeing. It always strikes me as being so "brooding."

Gina said...

Awesome photos! I haven't been to Maine in quite a few years, but I love it there.

Julia said...

I love your beautiful pictures of the lighthouse and the rocky shores, Christie but where is a picture of you?
The grass is so green up there.

I'm so glad that you had a wonderful time. Maine is a beautiful place.

Looking forward to see ing Stephen King's place. Have a great week. Hugs. JB

Love that you got to go inside the lighthouse. Don't know if I could have come down the steps. That kinda freaks me out.
Beautiful pictures.

Taos Sunflower said...

You're killing me with the pictures. I shall now fantasize about living in that sweet house by the lighthouse, rocking in my chair in front of the wood stove, knitting, and listening to the winds. Thank you for that gift.

I've only been once to Maine, and it was for too short of a visit. Your photos make me want to go back and spend some more time in this beautiful part of the world.

Garden of Egan said...

Wow! I love that lighthouse!
Such beautiful pictures.

I am so glad you were able to escape for a few days to do this.

Christi is beautiful.

Hi, sweet Maggie! I so enjoyed your pictures! Maine is beautiful! It was also wonderful to see a picture of Christi -- such a lovely young woman. I hope she's doing well these days.
