Ocean Waves: Maine Island Adventures

Dark green, briny-smelling waves crash against the rocky granite coast. Brown seaweed dries in the sun along the pebbly beaches. Seagulls screech overhead and lobster boat engines grumble in the distance. There's something special about a quaint village on a Maine island. For me, it's home, and I love being able to share that with my own children.

We enjoyed a sunny, warm day shore-side, jumping chilly waves, searching for sea glass, especially the special rare blue pieces, filling a sand pail with snails, collecting periwinkle shells, and climbing seaweed-encrusted boulders.

There was a family BBQ to celebrate a year of birthdays.

We enjoyed Nannie Lobster's flowers. Lupines are my favorite!

Coming to the island is always "down time" for me, a time to read and knit. (If you are a knitter and don't know about Ravelry you should click over. Lots of free projects!) I started my newest project, a reusable mesh bag, in denim blue cotton yarn, and my finished my first "beach book" of the season, The Silent Wife.

But, now we are back to our woods, enjoying our lakes and bursting garden, content to return
As always, special thanks to these weekly wrap-ups:
