From the sea

The wind outside is blowing hard today.  
Not calm and peaceful like these photos I took over the last several days, 
adding some Topaz editing magic. 

The Professor and I are spending the holiday here in Maine.  
Kids and grandkids are scattered about the country and our Holiday 
will be shared through Facetime.   

You'd think we'd have a ton of snow up here like other parts of the country.  
But such is not the case.  Just rain today.  And winds.  


I love spending time here.  
Even in its worst conditions, it's still beautiful and relaxing.  
Yesterday I walked our beach scouring for sea glass.  
Quite a bit of it washes up on shore and I like displaying it throughout our home.



Anything from the sea.  
It makes me happy.

Have a great weekend, my friends.

And breathe ....

Hi Reena...Northern Maine has all the snow...my daughter had 20 inches in one storm at here place this week !
It sounds wonderful...and finding sea glass is great fun I love doing that!! I have quite a bit of blue .
Many places up further from you Searport to Lubec have a lot of blue and I have some pink from there!!
Love the sail boat shot...enjoy your stay!!
Merry Christmas

What a lovely part of the country to spend the holidays. I hope we get to walk on the beach on Christmas day. It's a rare find to see sea glass here in Florida...where we walk. Merry Christmas!

Hi Reena....
I bet it is gorgeous there this time of year. Our daughter and sil live on the NC COAST. This is the best time to visit. Many years ago Shortly after they moved there It snowed. None of us had seen snow over the ocean..their pictures were amazing.
We wish you and the professor a peaceful and warm Christmas in your picturesque setting.
Hugs
Madi and mom

Your images convey the peace and calm so well -- no wonder you're staying there! I've collected beach glass for over 40 years and love having it around to remind me of the beautiful sea. Happy Holidays!

We had rain change to sloppy snow today. Surely not pretty, but it sounds like we may have some "real" snow tomorrow.

How wonderful to be in Maine for Christmas, and isn't FaceTime wonderful???

Merry Christmas, my friend.

xo.

Sounds like a lovely time to be in Maine. Your photos are so pretty, love the sailboat. And the seaglas is beautiful! Great find! Have a great weekend and a very Merry Christmas!

Claudia said...

I love sea glass. How lucky you are to find it on the beach there! No snow here, either. It has rained quite a bit, but I fear we will not have a white Christmas. Happy Holidays, Reena!
