Waking to a New Day

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWaking to the touch of sunshine that is coming through the porthole on my face is a glorious way to begin another day.


I stretch luxuriously beneath the covers before going on deck to greet the morning.

Bucks HarborIt is so calm boats sit still on the water, and we are surrounded by the beauty that is Buck’s Harbor, one of my favorite places to overnight.  The harbor is protected on one side by an island and on the other by the mainland making it a very safe anchorage.

Buck's HarborAshore is South Brooksville, a sleepy village where much of the activity seems to be at the clubhouse that overlooks the harbor.

Bucks harbor For some reason, my eyes always get watery here, maybe because it seems such a right place to be or maybe because again and again I am reminded that Maine is a little piece of heaven and I am so grateful to spend part of my life here.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

  1. Love your blog, gives me such wonderful memories of summers at the camp at Little Sebago Lake! Water from the pump, picking wild blueberries, even trips to the outhouse!
    On my bucket list for a return visit!

  2. How wonderful to wake up to the sun shining down and the smell of the salt in the air…Buck’s Harbor sounds like an amazing place…and I agree, how wonderful for you to be blessed to spend time where your heart is in that gorgeous peace of heaven called Maine.

  3. Great photo summary of a classic Maine boating getaway. You captured the “back in time” character of the village.

  4. That looks soooo nice! I live in NYC, and I love the hustle and bustle, but it also makes me yearn for the wilderness (and no, I’m not talking about concrete jungles — I want wilderness in nature!). Followed!

  5. I’m doing some catching up on my blogging friends, and see that you are enjoying summer! Its many years since I last woke up on a boat – I love going to sleep on one, the sound of the lapping waves slapping against the boat – a perfect way to drift off into dreams.

    1. What a coincidence to get your comment as I was just thinking about you and wondering how/where you are. I miss your always wonderfully entertaining posts.

You make my day with your comments
