Back from Maine

Its only been three days since we left and I already look back on our time up there as in a dream. The intense blue sky, the heavy blankets of fog, the cold waters, country lanes and of course, that soul filling ever so sublime smell of the pine forests combined with the salt water. I did pick and have started reading E.B. White's first collection of Essays "One Man's Meat" if you have not, click on the title, buy it and read it, you'll be glad you did.  I took upwards of 1000 pictures and saved around 640 or so. I'll get to producing the slide show as in years past soon. One highlight was spending an afternoon with Jim Fowler, you may remember him as host of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom and the guy who let wild animals climb all over Johnny Carson. We talked about the health of the oceans and the environment in general. I was honored that he shared his vision with me. More about that later. For now here are some samples of what July had for us.

I LOVED the music; loved the roads that took me to new places, along with the boats, sky and waterways. I love New England, and felt I was there. I shuttered as I watched the children playing in the water; relaxed on the boat, and was in awe at the beauty of this earth. Thanks so much for sharing. I couldn't wait to see the pictures. The only thing missing was a picture of someone enjoying every morsel of a lobster favorite. Glad you're home safely.
