Come On Spring!

25 Mar

Spring is coming...honest!

On a “warm” , sunny March day in Lubec Dennis just cannot help himself….he just HAS to wash the car! Odd how the mid-30’s can feel quite balmy. Spring is in the air and we are so happy.

( just ignore all that snow you see on the photo)

Ground Hog Day Storm in Lubec

3 Feb

Well, it seems like the movie “Ground Hog Day” here in Downeast Maine.  Over the last 9 days , we have had three storms. Every morning we awaken to the same old thing ~more snow, more shoveling and more snowplowing! We had 18 inches of snow on Ground Hog Day adding to whatever was already on the ground. The wind is wicked, making the drifts  about 7 feet high. The snow piles on the roadside are even higher…there is nowhere to go with it all!

Here are some photos ~

We are warm, dry and there is plenty of food in the fridge. The sun is shining  and we are thankful for strong bodies and snow-blowers!

A big “Thank you” to our Town Work Crew Members who are going without sleep and doing all they can to keep the streets open and safe for Lubec. We appreciate them ever so much!

Happy February everyone!!!

West Quoddy Head State Park Walk in January

22 Jan

Yesterday was a bright sunny day – what better way to enjoy winter than to take advantage of the weather , drop everything else and do a hike. It is unusual to have no snow on the ground in January , so… Dennis and I decided to walk the entire West Quoddy Head State Park Trail!

We began at The West Quoddy Light House - first stop, Gulliver's hole.

Then onto to Green Point, where folks have created cairns.

The views are all beautiful - this one is before we come to the end of the coastal trail and head inland.

The trail ends in a meadow looking over to Lubec.

Walking back to the car, we spot a mature Eagle who is not interested in us...only the lunch he is having on the roadside!

3 hours later, we are back at the car and headed home to Peacock House.  We live in such a beautiful area …come and see it for yourself some day!
