even in the fog


. . . Maine is glorious. I love the sound of the fog horns, and the clanging of invisible buoys. The stillness of the water, and the smell of salt air. I love the comfort of wrapping oneself up with a blanket at night.

Sigh.

It was hard to leave.

I can imagine it was hard to leave - having seen the photograph of the fog I think I know what you mean. Happy homecoming!

Hot and sunny and humid here so the fog images were like a cool breeze. And nothing better than blanket weather in the summer.

I love Maine too. Fond memories of working there and telling my husband that we were with child. Little did we know that there were "2" - and now those two are preparing to leave for college. Imagine that.

You had fog? We've been nothing but dry and hot two hours up the coast.

And yes, I sometimes think it is loveliest of all here in a gentle fog.

Hurry back.

Blue ~ thank you. But, I am ready to turn right around and go back. . .

MIR ~ it was good to catch up this morning. I am sorry we missed you on the way back to DC.

Ms. Wis ~ it is hot and sticky in Washington too. I could use another foggy day in Maine!

pve ~ oh, so sweet! Can't believe those handsome gents of yours are off to college.

mom ~ we'll be back!

DED ~ yup. Same state, but a world away it seems. We dearly wanted to stop in Blue Hill, but there just wasn't enough time (never is).
