I am back from my trip to Maine. I went to check up on my mom to see how she was doing. Going back home always gives me mix emotions as any vacation might do.
The positive side
-I scored a jar of confiture. If you have never had this oh my gosh you need to try it.
-I visited with my family.
-I was able to visit my home church twice.
-I was able to visit my dad at the cemetery.
-I was able to immerse in the French culture that is part of my Acadian heritage. One that is unique too anything I have ever visited.
-The beauty and simple life that is Northern Maine is priceless.
The negative side
-My phone kept wanting to connect to the Canadian server. I was 12 miles from the border.
-The realization that my time would go by very fast and it did
-The aging of my family and knowing that all things come to pass
-I did not write a dang thing while up there.
As with all vacations they come to an end. I have been up to Maine three times in the last year and that wears on a person’s mind and body. It was a good visit and will have great memories from it. As I was leaving the Monday night before I was to leave I saw the pretty lady that is posted here. She is two years old and a big gal but kids grow up so fast. It was a great way to end my time up home in Maine.

I’ve been to Maine (Bar Harbor) once and LOVED it! I definitely want to go back someday soon. You’ll have to give me some pointers on where to go and what to see!
Bar Harbor is gorgeous. Did you get to enjoy Acadia National Park? I love my home. 🙂
I did, but I would have liked to have done more there. We were on a whirlwind trip through New England and only spent one day in each state. I would definitely love to do more in Maine itself someday! Plus I have friends who live in Saco that need visiting, sooooo…. 😉
You are on the opposite end. I am in Northern Maine by the Canadian border which is gorgeous and I am bias hehe. But I am bias toward my whole state. That sounds like a great trip. Was it one you did on your own or through a special deal of sort? Sounds like fun. 🙂
It was just me and two friends attempting to visit every New England state within a week. 6 days, 2000 miles, memories to last a lifetime! =D
I friggen love that. Way to go Merry!
