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.
