My Last Day With Mom in Camden

My last day in fab Camden.
I am so sad to be leaving my mother....
quite a few tears today.
A few uncontrolled teary outburst.

This is Camden from the mountain top
where there is a fort that is ancient.
My tour guide at the fort on the mountain in Camden.

We had the most fun....laughs, laughs, laughs.
Much to mom's chagrin.....
she gets my humor.
And she just laughed and laughed.
I took this shot 
because it is this unbelievably chic veggie garden on a cliff,
on the ocean. Any place you are in Maine ,
with some elevation,
you will see sailing tall ships,
 small day sailors, and of course lobstah' boats.
After a bite of chowda' and a fried clam roll....
mom takes a break in front of
my fave place, 'Cappys.'
Just beyond this amazing garden
{this picture does very little justice to it's beauty}
there is the wide open ocean.
It is breath-taking here.
Mom loves these cows.
She had a farm in Liberty Maine that had them,
along with a huge heated barn with horses.

Home sweet home -
the view from the back yard.
The water in Harrington Cove is calling me....

but we decided to watch a movie and take a 
All the excitement, sunshine, and walking.....
not to mention the looming sadness that I would be leaving
in the morning. 
Knocked us out.
We slept for over 2hrs.
That's a long nap!
This is mom's art studio.
She doesn't really paint there-
She hangs her art there -
and sells it from there.

This has been the best time spent with my mom ever!!!

I love you mom!!! xxx
I will be back soon ....
We can throw another party for the artist in St Georges.
