Sun, Glorious Sun!

After two DISMAL days, one with almost constant rain, Wednesday was like a morsel of bread to a starving man.  We’ve been starving, alright — starving for sunshine.  And we ate it up.  All day yesterday the lake was positively glistening, and there was a cool breeze wafting through the open windows in the camp.  The kids were outside almost all day.

Goofing Off

Kayaking with Dad

Today the gloom and doom is back, but we enjoyed a slight reprieve.

My brother came into town last weekend, and his fiancée arrived last night.  It makes for cozy living quarters, but it’s nice to have some fresh blood around here. I love my family, but two weeks is a lot of togetherness.  I’m just sayin’. 

Today we’re off to one of our very favorite destinations — The Jordan Pond House — for their famed tea and popovers.  (Or in my case, coffee and popovers.  And lobster stew.  Theirs is the best around, in my humble opinion.)  Pictures are sure to follow.

  1. OOOHHHHH!!! Jordan Pond… YAY!! That is a top priority stop for me when we head to Maine in a few weeks. Cant wait! Enjoy your coffee and popovers. I’m drooling with anticipation now 🙂

  2. I hear ya! I thought I had started to turn into a vampire because when that sun hit my eyes, boy did that hurt!

    We headed out for ice cream last night to celebrate but those popovers and lobster stew sounds even more yummy.

    Hopefully you have some of the sunshine I saw this morning, although it does look like the clouds are starting to roll in.

  3. What a beautiful shot! When we went to Maine years ago in early August, it rained most of the time. When the sun would peak out, we would run on to the dock for some sunbathing and by the time we got there it would be raining again! The weather might stink sometimes but you can’t beat the food!

  4. Oh my goodness what an amazing pic. Your kids actually like eachother. If only for a few minutes 🙂 I love that dress. I have to find it for my little one.
