48 Hours in My Hometown in Northern Maine

October 13, 2011
Maine Autumn leaves, Fall Foliage

The Colors of Maine in Autumn

~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!

We're Family

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.

    Nanette the pics are priceless and sounds like you had so much fun being a kid again yourself and sharing good memories with old friends and of course “sister time” is always so very special. Don’t know what I would do without mine. Glad for you that you had those few days with loved ones.

    I love this log of your two days of family, friends, and fun! What a magical time you will never forget. Each generation of our family carries our memories forward. You have created memories with these children that will extend into the future. What a wonderful spontaneous adventure you embarked upon. I love your willingness to jump into the next experience. Love the pictures of your little grand nieces and nephews, so precious.

      You are right, this is like a log. There were so many things I wanted to mention in the post, it seemed like the only way to fit them all in! Thanks for your sweet comment. We did “make some memories!”
