Hello my friends, thanks for hanging in there all the way to the end.  I don’t imagine there are too many of you, but if you’re here, you are just a few minutes from the finish line. Just looking to share a few highlights as we hung around in Maine for a few days before we began our journey back to Virginia. We stayed at Diane and Dave’s in Southport Sunday night and Monday night. Sunday afternoon was spent looking at the wedding pictures from their son’s wedding in April.  Diane and I decided to work on getting my mom a small book of some key photos of the day.   Diane pre ..read more

Sunday, August 28th – No pictures of the Cove this morning as we are in Topsham, ME.  Here are a few pictures from the Black Lantern B&B where we stayed.  Our breakfast was awesome, a delicious homemade meal as good as if you made it yourself! Judy and Tom were very accommodating with a few special requests we had! After breakfast we went for a walk around historic Topsham and then across the bridge over the Androscoggin River towards Brunswick. We came to this very large building called the Cabot.  Looks like it was turned in an Antique Mall full of vendors and their wares ..read more

Sunday, Aug 21st -Another beautiful day! Air is clean with a touch of crispness until the sun has been up for a bit to warm up. As my morning routine has sometimes shifted to an early morning jaunt down the main trail to the Cove.  This is from 7:12. Little bit of fog off in the distance, but weather is calm.  Coming back up the trail, check out the sky in this photo of the house / tower!  That should be in the Crayola box as sky blue!!! Time to start pulling some nosh together for breakfast.  Here’s the kitchen table with this morning’s ingredients. This morning ..read more

Before I start this Blog, I want to let you know that from here on in the Blog will be a little different.  As our time here on Seguin accelerates to the end, what I share will be different.  My style of writing takes time.  It’s not elaborate, but it is definitely me.  I will do my best to share me, but what’s really important to me from here on in is to maximize our experience, live in the moment and be present.  I’m sitting here typing this particular week on Saturday Aug 20th.  It’s been a busy month already as we crossed the 1000 visitor mark.  Our son C ..read more

Sunday, July 31 – Wow, the last day of July! Down to check out the Cove…. Holy cow the barn swallows are everywhere! They fly around like top gun pilots!  Jim and Jill were the first up the trail.  We spent some time chatting with them and then we exchanged our info with them.  Just in case we should cross paths again – stranger things have happened! Next up was Joshua.  He used to run a charter service to Seguin.  His wife Jacquelyn and little Ruth accompanied him!  She was so cute and very excited to be on the island! As we chatted with them, he shared they ..read more

Sunday, July 24 – Good morning! Can’t believe we are starting the last week of July, already.  I have said to Steve a few times, I don’t want to hear – “Well we only have x number of weeks left or x number of trips ashore.  I’m not ready – so I put my fingers in my ears and say “watermelon, watermelon, watermelon.”  Then he catches on.  It’s just too soon to start any kind of countdown. I know it’s coming, faster than I like. 1 – leaf Sometimes I do so well in taking pictures of people, things or views and other times – well she just forgets!  Today is one of those d ..read more

Sunday, July 17 – A gorgeous morning! Our friends Sharon and Brent need to leave today ☹, but it has been a great weekend having them here! I know we need to rock and roll this morning as it’s going to be a busy day.  We are going to go down the main trail and then out Cobblestone, we’ll walk the coastline back to the end of the Cove trail.  It’s sort of a rock scramble, but you just need to pick you path ahead of you as there is not trail on the land.  What’s great about this walk, is every time you see something different, a rock formation, a flower, something has washed up ..read more

This Blog is looooong!  Grab a beverage, get comfy and enjoy! Sunday, July 10 – Beautiful low wind day!  Three boats stayed overnight.  We are working on a pipe in the wall of dirt leading to the beach at the Cove.  This water appears to be pretty clear and we wanted to make a dam of sorts so we can capture some of it in case it turns out that it is potable.  Here was the attempt at putting the pipe in, but the water is not running out through the pipe. We need to think like a beaver and build some type of dam…. By 10:00 we had another boat join the group in the Cov ..read more

Sunday, July 3 – Well it’s July 4th weekend and it’s official – summer has started in Maine!  I pulled out my yoga mat as I do really like to start the day with some stretching, reflective time.  To set an intention for the day… almost there when a group of 4 walked up!  I was almost done though, but still in my leggings and it was only 0830. This group was great and enjoyed every minute of the tour of the Tower. Pic is of Dave, Caroline, Maria and Greg. We have friends Cindy and Dave from Connecticut that were our neighbors.  They moved into the hood the same time I di ..read more

Sunday, June 26 – Beautiful day!!!  Woke up early and saw another sunrise.  Took a pic out the front window upstairs, a slightly different view. We decided crab cakes benedict would be a great way to finish the last two crab cakes!  Boy were they good. Four seemed to be the popular number today.  First group of four was “RADD” – Ron, Alicia, Dave and Dave.  They are a random group of friends from MITA (Maine Island Trail Association).  Most had been here before, but they decided to put in nearby and come here.  We saw them coming in towards the cove, then we ..read more
