Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

“There is nothing in the world more beautiful than the forest clothed to its very hollows in snow. It is the ecstacy of nature, wherein every spray, every blade of grass, every spire of reed, every intricacy of twig is clad with radiance.”

Merry Christmas from Sue and Dennis at Peacock House

The Easternmost Scandihoovian Oompah Band

Magic surprises happen in Lubec quite often.  The other day , several friends appeared at the door of Peacock House with an obvious intent to do mischief.  Minutes later a band (of sorts )was setting up in my driveway ~ a recorder, a violin, an accordian and a tuba ~ otherwise known as “The Easternmost Scandohoovian Oompah Band.  To the delight of our guests , wonderfully happy and bouncy oompah music filled the air.

It’s in the 50′s and it’s Easter! What better way to celebrate the coming of Spring(?) than a walk on the Boot Cove Preserve.  The snow is almost gone ~ just bits here and there. The birds were happily soaring above us and chattering away! Happy Easter~ Happy Spring everyone!

February Walk ~ Hamilton Cove

Hamilton Cove January walk 001
Today it is snowing in Lubec, but yesterday was clear, cold and sunny ~ a perfect day for a walk. So, off we went with our friend Bonnie to Hamilton Cove Preserve. There were bits of snow and ice along the way, but nothing to worry about at all. The walk ends at a Bench perched right along the cliff ~ an amazing view! Down the path is “Morton’s Rock” a wonderful place to sit and contemplate the beauty of The Bold Coast. Each time we venture out for a hike, we are thankful that all this gorgeous scenery is right out our back door. After the hike, we returned home to hot chicken chili and corn bread. As good as life gets! Enjoy the photos of our fabulous February Day.

Peacock House visits England

 Season #11 at Peacock House has come to an end. We had a busy and exciting year, so Dennis and I were ready for a well-earned holiday. Off to Whitby, Aislaby we went! It was a long, but uneventful bus/flight/metro/train ride to York , England where our good friend Rita met us. For the next two weeks we walked, ate , visited with friends and did alot of sightseeing. Before we knew it, our time was over and now we are back at Peacock House and looking forward to the Christmas holidays. Here are some photos of the trip…..

Peacock House Siding – Part II

 

Working on the Bay Window

Dennis ~ the hardworking assistant

The finished product

Last year, we had the right side of the front of Peacock House re-sided.
Now this year, we have completed the left front and Church Street side of the house. New shutters too. Dennis also had a new roof put on top of the Bay Window . George Baker and Dennis did the work together and it looks marvelous! The project was completed yesterday at 3:30pm ~ just in time for our dinner party at 4:00 pm! Part III, the back of Peacock House, will begin this Spring. Dennis’s winter project is the Sunroom. Stayed tuned for photos of his winter work!

View From Lubec

This is what I see on my daily walk

My friend Gretchen at The Laughing Raven Gallery

Each day I take a walk around town for a bit of quiet time. Look what I am fortunate to see and hear and feel…blue sky, water , fresh air, a gentle ( or brisk) breeze , sea gulls, seals , boats and of course the many friends I pass along the way. At times, it is a challenge to finish my walk in the time allotted ~ there is too much to see and too much to talk about! Life in Lubec is good.
