Day 'Two' With Mumzy

We started out in Tenents Harbor
having coffee and donuts. this nursury is just very cool.
like most everyone that I know here.  
There is mom off in the distance having her cafe and do not donut.
She is blond, wearing a blue shirt.
I loved this place.
Years ago,
I bought my mom's allim bulbs here.

And look...they have those highly fashionable split trees.
These were 'Mcentosh' {sp??} apple trees
The next part of the routine is going to mom's favorite spots.
below is one of her very faves.

see the man in the distance?
he is touching up the paint...
that is what you see everyone doing around town.
because...the winter is always a' comin'.
I decided to take a fab shot for her to paint.

To the right of this light house,
this picture was taken.

Now we are approaching my favorite funky village.
Port Clyde...
It is just very isolated....and old

this is a view of the villiage from a slight hill coming into town.

The coolest general store...EVER.

xxx have a great week end  xx

  9. this is what is dangerous.....
    having your mom around while you are still signed into your blog.
    thank g-d she reavealed who she was.
    she could have written anything.
    and she would too!!!!

    gotta love her xxx

  10. How fun! Looks like a great and much needed break for both of you, nothing like quality time with your mom especially in a place as uber charming as where you are!

  11. Awwww Love this set of 'vacationing with ma' posts! Looks beautiful....and SOO not florida!

  12. Beautiful pictures, i just can smell the air, feel the warmth, taste the lobster. Wished i could just pop in and say hello on my way to Roque island, about 120 miles north. we always spend a night quite close to you at my husband's dad's home in South bristol near Damarascotta. My days (far too few) in Maine are some of the most blissful, soothing and beautiful ones. The simplicity of the rugged landscape, the nature, forest and sandy beaches, the food and the simplicity of a day spent without a thought to the craziness of working in New York...

  13. Those pictures are lovely...

    Such a nice place,
    and that house and general store reminds of some places that have not changed much by time and industrialization. What a fine place ♥

  14. Enjoyed the tour. Got to see your Mom properly on full screen. Glad she is enjoying her trip. Pass on my regards to her please.

    To me this area has a feel of Nova Scotia.

  15. Renee,
    These images are gorgeous. Love the little pier.
    I have always been addicted to general stores. There is just something a bout them.
    I am glad you are having fun.

  16. So glad the two of you ar spending quality time together in this beautiful place.....Our best to you both xo Maryanne and Robes xo

    sleepy town was full of subtle delights that crept all easy and went deep. a dose was always good and a reminder of other ways, places to settle when life got too fast. lovely. haunting even. thanks for sharing.

  18. Cool garden center and love that white house!!!! I've never been to Maine...isn't that a shame?




Thanks for participating!!
