For the last few days, it seems all we have done is work, me in the yard where there’s always something to do and the hubby replacing and painting rotten boards on the porch. Enough is enough, so I suggested we take a break and head out on the boat for an overnight stay. There was no resistance to that idea!
Penobscot Bay is chock full of islands, many of which have little protected harbors and coves which make for a very peaceful escape.
I especially like finding a place where we are all alone and the only sounds are the wind whistling through the trees and water lapping gently against the hull.
Once settled, it is time for a little refreshment
and games of backgammon. Already, whatever we left behind is forgotten and it’s easy to enjoy nothing more than being.
As day slowly fades away, thoughts turn to dinner. I have no problem working in the compact galley where there is space for everything.
Since this adventure was very last minute, I brought whatever I could find in the refrigerator. There were a few slices of salami, mozzarella, a tomato and some salad greens which when combined on a pizza crust made a very tasty dinner.
Before calling it a day, I wandered out on the deck to take in the beauty of the night. Surrounded by nothing but darkness, the light on the water couldn’t have been more beautiful. The sky was filled with twinkling stars, some seeming so close it would be possible to grab a handful of starlight. Such are the moments that remind me why I love being in Maine.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
