Everyone likes to be in their “happy place” – this is ours. Clearly, you can see the joy that we finally made it to the island (old photo, we will not make it there in 2021) – this is one magical place that has a strong magnetic pull for so many of us. Monhegan is a special place in so many ways, but mainly it’s the friendships we’ve made throughout the years.Continue reading “Oh! How I wish we were here…”
Maine is a drop dead gorgeous place to visit. It’s also like a double edged sword. You go, you enjoy, you are overtaken by the beauty, the clean air, the quiet, and then… you don’t want to go home. There are some of you out there who have had this exact reaction. I’ve loved pretty much everywhere I’ve gone to visit. But I have never felt the pull that I felt like I did when I was in Maine.Continue reading “Throwback photo: Port Clyde, Maine”
The Lupine Gallery on Monhegan Island, Maine is one of our favorite places to visit. The gallery has such a stunning space both upstairs and down – so many incredible paintings all in one place. The Lupine Gallery owners Jackie Boegel and Bill Boynton are the most delightful, knowledgeable and friendly people you could ever meet. Next time you visit Monhegan be sure to stop in the gallery and take a peek at the stunning work they have available.Continue reading “Lupine Gallery, Monhegan, Maine”
This is a heavenly scene from years ago… 2009 to be exact. My parents stayed with us at a cool cottage in Port Clyde before we headed over to Monhegan for a few days. What a great trip. This was out on a walk on Horse Point Road in Port Clyde. The views are stunning everywhere you look. When you mix the beauty of the sky and the cool light with the dark outline of the working boats it turns into one of my favorites!Continue reading “I am not in Maine, just wishing I was…”
Maine. It’s our happy place. Fred and I started visiting Monhegan Island back in 2006. We haven’t been in several years but we’re looking to getting back there at some point. I remember this photo. I didn’t sleep and was so exhausted yet so happy to be on our way to the island. We were waiting for Monhegan Boatline’s next trip to the island. We didn’t have any idea what to expect (other than reading everything I could get my hands on)…Continue reading “First Trip to Maine…”
Kevin Beers. What an amazing artist! I try to post his exhibition each year around this time. Kevin can paint so well AND he’s such a nice guy (as is his wife!) – This painting is perfect for today “Stars and Stripes” – it’s available at Gleason Fine Art in Boothbay Harbor, Maine!Continue reading “Kevin Beers Exhibit: 25 Years and Counting!”
Since we haven’t been anywhere it what feels like forever, I felt like taking a little trip to Monhegan Island today, so I perused my photos and found this image from 2012. Taken at Lobster Cove, a quick and easy hike with a stunning view. There is just so much to love about Monhegan. We can’t wait to get back. Like many of you, we have been in place for over a year now, so we really want to go see family and maybe Monhegan next year? Who knows! 🤞Continue reading “Lobster Cove Life Ring Buoys | Monhegan, Maine”
We all look forward to the annual art show at the Island Inn, Monhegan, Maine. The owners of the Lupine Gallery on Monhegan transform the dining room of the inn into a stunning art mecca each year. It is so exciting to walk into the dining room and see the art displayed so masterfully. Absolutely gorgeous paintings this year by artist Caleb Stone. It’s also a treat to be eating in the dining room at the Inn with a breathtaking view both inside and out!Continue reading “2021 Lupine Gallery/Island Inn Show with Caleb Stone!”
Beautiful, right? Gorgeous sunsets! This is one that I only caught the tail end of – yet still… so much beauty in one area! The islands, the water, the working (and playing) boats. The fabulous Marshall Point Lighthouse with so much history. Does it look familiar? Have you seen the movie Forrest Gump? This lighthouse was in the movie…Continue reading “Marshall Point Lighthouse – Port Clyde, Maine”
Fred and I were hiking the trails on Monhegan several years ago. The island is one of the most beautiful places ever, with wondrous trails leading to cliffs and ocean. Ahh, the sites, the sounds (or lack thereof), and the freshest air ever!Continue reading “Our Happy Place!”
So many of us are missing our vacations right now. #damncovid This photo is from a few years ago. We’ve all been in a holding pattern, some of us more than others, for quite some time now. I read something that made me smile.
If I would have known the last time I ate out was going to be my last time for so long I would have ordered dessert. #howtrueitis

I absolutely love the deep vibrant blue of the sky against the wild green on the buoys. Such a striking combination. This photo was taken a few years ago before Trap Day on Monhegan Island (Maine).
