Our suitcase and carseat were delivered today! Yay! We have sweaters and boots! (and camera and binoculars and hairbrush and a change of underwear.....)

Our visit has been pretty low key so far, but we did go drive around the loop at Schoodic Point yesterday. The Maine coast is beautiful any time of year; winter is a highly underrated season, putting on a display that the summer crowd misses.

The recent snow and ice storms combined with the ocean spray to produce some spectacular ice formations on the rocks at the water's edge.

Maine always feels like home to me. Like this is where I belong, where I was meant to be. I like the cold and the bluster and the feeling of being alive. It's easy to love Maine in the summer, but loving it in the winter is what makes you a Mainer at heart.

I love all the moods of Maine.

Yes, that's it.

I love Schoodic Point... it may be my favorite place on the coast (but a little far for frequent visits). :)

Seeing the icebergs reminds me of when I lived in Holland Michiga and the coast of lake Michigan was like that. I've only been to Maine in July but I loved it. I love all of New England and wouold love to live there. But for know I'll enjoy the big sky of Illinois.

Great shots! I love how your blue blog background makes them stand out so nicely, too. I understand that ALIVE feeling, too: get it on the shore of Lake Superior, myself. Enjoy the big of "home" for a while!
