Cape Neddick Lighthouse in Maine!
Jim and I rode up the coast last weekend to Maine. He brought me to see the Cape Neddick Lighthouse which is on Nubble Island.
The rock in the background was covered in these wonderful black birds. I was hoping for puffins since I have never seen one….but no luck.
The seagulls love it there!
This lighthouse has been in use since 1879. The top of the lighthouse stands 88 feet above sea level!
These neat shrubs were everything and appear super hardy. They had both a fruit and flower on them and a rich thick green leaf. I have no idea what they are though.
The waves were crashing against the rocks!
When we got back to the car, these guys were waiting for us!!! I know seagulls are a nuisance, but they are really beautiful!
I made these adorable necklaces for my blogging friend Claudia. She is giving 1 to her son and the other to her nephew!
I would love to start a line of children's jewelry but there just aren't enough hours in the day!
My brother gave me some fresh organic peaches from his tree. They were delicious. The fuzz was so thick that I had to peel them! Maybe that is how they are when organic!
We are bracing for Hurricane Irene!!! Ugh!!! Good luck to everyone in it's track!
Thank you for stopping by! ~Val
