SEABREEZES MARK ISLAND LIGHT AND BOATS LOBSTER BOAT FOG PUMPKIN ISLAND LIGHT AND SUMMER IN MAINE STONINGTON HARBOR Hi there! I know that most of you have given up on me since it's been months since I visited with you. I do hope that you stop in to see if I by chance have returned to blogland. It's been a long summer for me. I have spent the most of it on the Island I grew up on taking care of my aged parents. To make a long story short, my dad passed away in July in the Island Nursing home after a stay there of almost 2 years. He was 90 yrs old and had been failing ever since he had a bad fall back in the winter of 2015. During his lifetime he had worn many hats and pairs of hip boots. He was a clam digger, a scallop fisherman, a lobster fisherman and businessman. He spent 7 yrs in the Navy before marrying his sweetheart and they raised 3 children, 2 boys and me. But the occupation that he will be most remembered for is the ow

SPRING IS HERE! What a long Winter it was, so much snow both here and in Maine. So much beauty surrounding our house, if you can look past the leaves that didn't get completely cleaned up last Fall. Even inside the house. So, what's happening? As for me, I am trying to recover from a back injury and also some pelvic pain. Not doing much to be active, not that I am an active person in the best of health. I have hobbies that are conducive to weight gain. Reading, crocheting, watching my beloved murder mysteries on dvd, and playing around with my notebook computer. I also like to bird watch, which forces me to walk around with my binnos and a camera. Even if it is just around the house here and in Maine. I shot this picture of an oriole looking in the window at our budgies, Billy and Peggy. I thought I would look back through my photo files and post a few from last year. Billy and Peggy.

Hi there! It's been a long time since we chatted! Hope all is well with you and yours. I am still spending time on the Island with my Mom. She is not dealing very well with my Dad being in the Island Nursing Home-even though it has been well over a year now. Since I live in PA and she lives in ME it's not easy being her POA and Caregiver. Oh, well, it is what it is, right? There are definately perks to living this life style. One being the terrrific sunsets we have on Little Deer Isle nearly every day that we see the sun. Some are more spectacular then others. This one was taken about 2 weeks ago. Here is another view of it. On a different day. About a month ago we had three snow storms in the course of one week in Maine. I did get a few pictures before the last one was over, from inside the house. The winds were fierce! You can see that the snow was piling up in front of my little camper that I used to stay in during the summer bef
