Whales Are Amazing!

Last week we stayed at the Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport, Maine.  In the hotel's gift shop, I saw this gem of a book by local author, Tony Viehmann:

If you LOVE whales like I do, this is a worthwhile book to add to your collection!


Portland, Maine = Most Populated City in Maine = Fun Place to Visit!

We took a trolley tour of Portland one day.  It was a perfect day for this activity as it was cool and drizzly.  We visited the Portland Head Light:

We also learned that Henry Wadsworth Longfellow was born in Portland and loved to visit the lighthouse:



Seashore Trolley Museum

On our last day, we visited the oldest and largest museum of public transportation right in Kennebunkport! 

Those are my nieces, Jane and Lauren, who are from West Hartford ~ which explains why I took their picture in front of this trolley from Connecticut.  We even got to take a ride in a trolley!  In addition, there are trolleys, subway cars and buses from the U.S., Canada, England and Australia!

The trolleys also have the old advertisements in them:

It's Pumpkin Time!

When I went food shopping, I bought some pumpkin flavored yogurt ~ ALREADY!

 I'm trying to slow down time, but it's not working!  

Have a wonderful weekend.  Thank you for visiting.  Please let me know what you've been up to these days!

  1. I love Maine! I used to go with friends to stay in a cottage when Seth was little. I haven't done that in over a decade! I'm glad you got one more fun trip in before school starts. I've also been wishing I could slow down time a little! But I'm also excited to meet my new students and see my colleagues. Enjoy what's left of your summer!
