Until Pipe Dreams is back at the dock and we’ve had our first boat outing, summer hasn’t begun. Thanks to blustery seas, it’s taken a few days to get that first trip underway.
Leaving Rockport Harbor behind I begin to see all the familiar sights that are so dear.
Indian Island with its lighthouse still stands guard at the mouth of the harbor, and in the distance a schooner loaded with visitors is powered by a gentle breeze.
Farther out are the islands that separate us from the Atlantic Ocean and make this part of the Maine coast the absolute best for boating.
Lobster buoys dot the water,
and the lobster guys are out doing their thing which reminds me I haven’t yet had a lobster!
High above are clouds floating in a clear blue sky, and I wonder how life could be any more perfect than at this moment. I close my eyes in gratitude for the privilege of being in this beautiful place.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

I look forward to your wonderful summer adventures in your beautiful Maine!
Ahhh….there is nothing more relaxing then being on the water!! Love your pictures and some of the sights are becoming familiar to me after following your blog for a bit now. I love the lighthouse!
I’m so happy to see all the familiar places and glad to have you along. What plans do you have for summer?
Linda, Happy Summering! Your paradise is amazing and I know you are enjoying every minute!
Happy Summer Lulu! Your boat is gorgeous, and every time I think of lobster I think of you. We can’t get decent lobster in Alabama, even the “live Maine” lobsters look like they crawled down here instead of being flown! I look forward to your upcoming summer posts-
I have just returned from a trip to Maine. From Quebec to Camden and then to Portland, I was close to Rockport. Maybe next trip I will have a look at the harbor. The coast of Maine is so beautiful. I adore the sea ! Also, your blog got my attention with your photo of the loom. I have my mother’s loom and I’m starting now a weaving project. I love your blog and all the photos of Maine.
I hope you will follow along as there will be much more Maine. If you run into a snag with your weaving, let me know. I might be able to help.
So nice of you to offer. thank you !
We feel so blessed to be here! Beautiful!
Looks beautiful Lulu! Summer is in full swing here in MN with heat today in the 90s.
It is still quite cool here, 50’s at night, high 60’s in the day. I wish it would last!
Ahhh…sigh…welcome back to your summer home!
Thank you. I love this part of my life.
Let’s be honest…you are in paradise..!!
Enjoy your spectacular summer!!
