Lupines in bloom

Can there be any more of a beautiful place than Maine in the summer?  Especially in June when the lupines are in full bloom and the morning air is crisp with earthy smells of a beginning day.


I have really never been a morning person, but now with puppies, that has changed.
I guess that is good.

I always wanted to rise with the sun, but the warmth and comfort of a soft bed always won out.

Nowadays, the sounds of whining pups that will soon turn into ear-shattering barks should I not move fast enough, rule my world.

But I have adapted.  
Especially here in Maine 
when we have these gorgeous views to take in.



Lucy and Harry enjoy their morning and evening walks.  
They especially like it when we arrive at the beach.
As you can see below, Lucy goes rather spastic
running in the sand.
Harry, on the other hand, is too busy looking for 
some morsels in the seaweed.


But we wrap up our walk taking in the harbor 
and lingering in the morning dew.


 Now if I can just get them to chill out after their walks
so I can enjoy my morning coffee on the patio,
life would be almost perfect.

Almost.

Nothing like "children" to give you a new perspective on things! :-) It is truly beautiful there, though!

Sylvia K said...

One time my husband was driving us home on back forest roads after having camped at Timothy Lake (Mt. Hood area) and we rounded a corner to see a field literally filled with lupine in a variety of colors! I was so amazed at the beauty and how many there were!!

Summer, winter, or anytime, Maine is just the best.
These photographs are beautiful, Reena, and I am glad that you are enjoying your time there.

For the first time in my life, I'm heading to Maine. In a matter of days, we will search for new life and civilizations:) I cannot wait to see this place. I've heard so much about it:) And now I'll be able to try something called a Lobster roll? Anyhow, beautiful scenic pics!

Love that foggy picture. I'll be in Maine in two weeks. Can't wait!

I know exactly what you mean regarding your pups. We have two now... Molly (20 months) and Abby (8 months). Two very different personalities, yet very loving.

Pups are work, but the reward is unconditional love.
As always, gorgeous photos...
