Tea and Popovers and Jam, Oh My!

I shamelessly stole that idea for a title from my aunt, Midlife Mom.  I have so many pictures I want to post from today, but with our snail-paced Internet connection, I don’t know how many I can upload.  Let’s start with this.

After dining stuffing our faces full of lobster stew and popovers, we decided to work off the calories with some light hiking.  We climbed out on the rocky cliffs overlooking the ocean.  I lost about 10 years off my life while watching Hub and D climb out onto the edge for a better look.  I did manage to snap a few pictures amidst my warnings and dire predictions of death and bodily injury.

Then we walked down to Hunters Beach.  As I was traipsing through the woods, I suddenly smelled the unmistakable smell of Christmas.  I looked up and realized I was walking through a grove of evergreens.  I turned around and snapped this photo of Hub following along behind me.

That’s my brother and his fiancé with me, Hub, and D.

  1. Looks like a good time. M would like to know when Curly will be home? And A is pining for his best bud D. I can’t wait for you guys to get home so my kids aren’t bored anymore!

  2. I’m trying not to be desperately jealous of your surroundings as I type this from my home in Indiana. Maybe I’ll take my daughter to the park….

  3. We Texan’s don’t have popovers or Lobster stew. I have to get to Maine so I can learn about all those yummy things. Glad you are having a good time.

  4. OMG…….I wish I could of fit my husband, my 3 boys and me! in your suitcases. So so so so beautiful. I love the rocky coasts of Maine.

    Thank you for posting about our give aways!


  5. Stopping by via Momdot – congrats on being a feature blogger! I have enjoyed checking out your vacation pictures. It is just WEIRD for me to see people in jackets in August (sorry, I’m in South Texas – we’re lucky to get below 80 at night, hahaha)!

  6. I am trying to figure out when I can plan a trip to Maine. Their tourism bureau may need to send you some compensation for all this free advertising! : )

    I mean between the food and sights, I am totally sold!
