Charlie, a pool and a birthday!

Charlie. 

Sweet beast. Lover of his pool. Digging to China. Or wherever he thinks he’s going. Demanding. Sweet. Smart. Listens. Doesn’t listen. Jumps high.. Full of energy. Loves the sun. Not a fan of heat. Sock stealer. Owner of three beds. Has trained his humans well. Snap – Snap. Treats delivered. Frozen green beans. Diagonally sliced carrots. Crunchy ends of lettuce. Pasta lover. Good dog. Bad dog. Cucumbers daily. Proud little beast. Loves “his people”. Best burglar alarm ever. Eyes in back of his head. Can hear someone coming in a deep sleep.

The End Was Near

Can you imagine? One minute the sky is beautiful and then out of the corner of your eye you spot a dark cloud that morphs into most of the sky filled with this powerful dark cloud moving towards us. I was in Michigan visiting my family, we were all taking photos of it approaching (we all love weather) – after this passed the warm air cooled considerably. This was so dramatic! Was the end really near? Absolutely not – I’m not a storm chaser, just a lover of weather, I’m quite fascinated by it, always have been, especially when what you see is so striking! A cold front? I believe so, it was quite chilly afterwards!

Stunning Sky Over Marsh – Michigan

Marsh View in Michigan
Yay iPhone! This camera can take some bedazzling photos if I do say so myself! I get many comments on photos which I really appreciate, but truly, it’s not me… I mean just LOOK at this sky! All I did was push a button! These clouds go on forever and ever and are brightly reflected in the water. Vibrant green grass against a stunning blue sky. Wow.

View from Port Clyde, Maine

Such a crisp scene. Not crisp as in cold, but the striking darkness of the horizon against that gorgeous sunset. Love those few stray clouds drifting by. So serene. This photo was taken in Port Clyde, Maine a few years ago…

The Barnacle – Monhegan, Maine

Ah! The Barnacle – love this place. Great food, cool gifts, nice wine and bakery goods. The Barnacle is a part of the Island Inn and it’s a treasure. It’s located right near the Monhegan wharf. We have met some really interesting people inside including one woman who demanded that we play some game with her that lasted hours and we kept trying to get away, but then found out she was killing time because she didn’t want to “do Monhegan”, she wanted to go back to her condo in Camden, sigh… #dontknowwhatyouremissing #notv #nophone #nostress #thatgamewasstressful
