On Wednesday to Friday I went to Maine and back with 3 friends and shopped and ate too much!
On Saturday we cleaned the house for company and cleaned out all my annuals after the killer frost.
We entertained and celebrated Thanksgiving with our company.
And now we're headed into a busy week ahead.
I had great time from Wednesday morning to Friday night with Lois, Barb and another Pam. We shopped in Bangor, Camden, and Freeport for 3 whole days minus the traveling time. Oh, we ate and slept too but they don't count. Those gals love to shop!
Mount Battie Motel in Lincolnville near Camden.
We stayed in the motel part of the B&B and had our breakfast on this beautiful
veranda. It was chilly but nice in the sunshine.
I could have stayed here a week! What a beautiful area.
All the muffins and coffee cakes were home made by the owner. Delicious!
Camden harbour with the sun dancing on the water.
Cappy's Chowder House/bakery/gifts in Camden.
On the drive home the sunset was spectacular. I got this shot along the I-95 near Mt. Katahdin
as we were driving along. The sky and 3/4 moon and calm water were so pretty.
Saturday and Sunday the temperatures were in the mid-20's celsius and the sun
was shining. It was just like summer and the evenings were so balmy.
We had some beautiful sunrises and sunsets.
Sunset on Sunday evening.
Sunrise this morning (Monday) through the bedroom window.
It's much cooler today with a strong NW wind - more fallish for sure!
The trees in Maine had not turned at all - just the odd one.
But, here in New Brunswick it's getting very pretty!
This is the view from Heaven's Gate, a subdivision near here, this morning.
The trees are slower to change colour and most are fading and blowing off in the wind.
It was a spectacular sight none the less.
This is quite a view from the homes on this street isn't it?
I don't like the street as it appears to go straight down to the river
and is very steep. It kind of scares me - especially in winter!
We visited a cemetery this morning too. This is the old gate and the beautiful trees across the road.
Corn field next to the cemetery. The cemetery is behind the baptist church between farms.
That's what I've been up to since Wednesday.
Busy, busy, busy.
Thanksgiving has been beautiful and we've really enjoyed the lovely weather
and gorgeous scenery.
What did you do this long holiday weekend?
I'll be back soon with more pictures from Camden, Maine.
It's such a beautiful little town and I want to share it with you!
I hope you are having a lovely day.
