48 Hours in My Hometown in Northern Maine
~Photographed Mt Katahdin at noon on my way north…not ideal timing but still gorgeous fall colors.
~Met my new grand-niece, Addie. Love her! Such a little pixie.
~Went for a photo “walk around” with several of the children in our family. They all had single-use cameras. I saw the world through the eyes of a child.
~Chatted late into the night with my only sister. Then slept snuggled beside her with the windows wide open and the cool breeze blowing in.
~Was licked, tickled, nudged, flirted with and kissed by many little horses.
~Shot 1,476 digital images and 72 iPhone images
~Visited, laughed and smooched many grand nieces and nephews whom I have not seen for way too long.
~Walked with a friend and his wife who I had not seen for almost 35 years.
~Left with a box of organic vegetables so heavy I can barely lift it. Lovingly grown and cared for by family.
~Played in a hayloft
~Ate delicious thick, greasy pizza and drank cheap beer.(My favorite kind)
~Visited family in a home I have visited with family in for 40 years.
~Reminisced about the old times and celebrated today.
And most importantly……..
~Felt the love of Family and childhood friends.
…..I hope they felt the same love from me right back at them!
I wasn’t able to stay nearly long enough nor did I see all the friends I would have loved to have been able to see! I guess that means I need to head North again very soon.
