Star of the show…

I swear you can find something beautiful anywhere you look. Doesn’t this flower seem to be the star of the show? Oh so bright and well formed amidst other flowers that were on the downswing (in this shot). I think that just makes this stand out even more.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, isn’t it?

Always be looking for the unlikely… simple beauty… always the best!

Pretty Flowers – Monhegan

Pretty flowers capture my attention every single time. I have no idea what these may be, but they were beautiful.

There seems to be a common theme to this weeks post – Monhegan – Maine… It’s good to have all those memories stored so you can take mini-vacations while daydreaming, ha ha…

Enjoy your day!

Monhegan Sunflower!

Monhegan (Maine) Sunflower… looks almost as if it’s waving or winking at you. Don’t you just love the vibrant yellow against the greens in the leaves?

This was another photo shoot on Monhegan, Maine. I can’t stop myself from taking photos of all the beautiful flowers! Happy day!

View of Island Inn from Horns Hill – Monhegan, Maine

This is a view of the Island Inn (with the flag) in the distance as viewed from Horns Hill, Monhegan, Maine. We love Horns Hill… it’s a great place to eat an ice cream cone 😜 – the steep hills help burn a calorie or two so you don’t feel quite so guilty.

Doesn’t the Island Inn look grand in the distance? It is… Home away from home, ha ha. That may be quite a stretch, but…

A typical day on Monhegan (Maine)…

Monhegan, Maine. There is nothing like taking a nice walk around the island, passing the many charming cottages and taking in a view that is out of this world. This is such a sweet cottage, one of our favorites – I love the blue door.

A perfect day on the island goes something like this… Wake up at the Island Inn, head down for coffee and chat with friends, then head to breakfast. After breakfast take a stroll around, snapping photos and then heading back to the inn. Then out for a longer stroll/hike and back in time for lunch – either in the dining room or at the Novelty or Barnacle. Time to sit a spell and stare out to sea letting your thoughts drift away.

It’s so nice to just be. Quiet. Still. No TV, no radio, no telephone (except for the occasional try with a mobile phone if necessary, usually to meet up with other friends on the island.)

Another walk/hike, get ready for dinner, head to dinner and ENJOY the best meal ever. Then sit and chat with friends, turn out the lights and head to bed.

Best time ever. ❤️

PS, I just found out that this cottage is for rent, so keep that in mind! What a treasure!

The Light Keepers House – Monhegan, Maine…

Monhegan, Maine

This building is part of the Monhegan Lighthouse – The Monhegan Museum has great history on their website, check it out!

I wonder how many people have painted this scene? Many, that’s for sure! The crisp white building against the (often times) blue sky is stunning!

This is now a museum and is it ever FABULOUS! Stunning paintings from all the great artists who have painted on Monhegan, it’s so special to see their work in person. If you visit Monhegan do not miss it! Stop at the Novelty, get an ice cream cone, and then head for a walk, you might even burn off all the calories by the time you get back, ha ha.

Blue Boat – Maine.

I took this photo several years ago. I just love the blue in the boat, the light reflections in the water and those fabulous shadows.

Makes me smile… Happy Saturday!
