Mainly Maine

Time for a teeny break from Christmas.

I’m in the mood to share some of my favorite images from my recent road trip to Maine with a little side trip to Mystic, CT on the way home to Richmond.

This is the charming entry to my cousin Sally’s home in Wiscasset.

American Greeting

Also seen in Wiscasset:

Maine Tool Shed

Pemaquid Light.  I love this image.  The color blocks and the textures send me.

Red, White, and Blue

Also, at Pemaquid.  The vastness of the sea just beyond.

Vast Horizon

From inside Pemaquid Lighthouse.  I have a thing for window views.  The sailboat out on the ocean makes this image for me.

Ocean View

Beautiful and simple lines converge here, at the dock in Mystic.

Gunwale

A lovely and evocative sunset in Portland.

Lobster Shack Sunset

Fantastic textures and the haphazard splash of orange paint makes it one of my favorites.

Orange Paint

Again, the textures and the colors are just tremendous. On a glorious late summer day in Mystic.

Clam Shack

Through the window at a farm stand in Maine.  Serene.

Rooster & Shoe

The name says it all:

Eye on the Ocean

A study in whites.

Brilliant

I like this even though it makes me think of Alfred Hitchcock.

Gull Cottage

I think Andrew Wyeth should have painted this.  Perhaps he did.

Checked Curtains

Back to that gull on the clam shack in Mystic.  I love the fishing net inside the window.

Sentry Gull

And I leave you with this iconic sunset picture.  I hope you enjoyed the trip!

  1. LOVELY! I lived in Portland, ME for about three years and it was great. My mom had a house in Poland Springs, ME on the edge of Middle Rang Pond and that was totally awesome. I hope you ate your lobstah (LOL) while you were there. Great pics.
