Pictures

My last post got me all thinking about that summer, it was undeniably a pretty good summer.

So, I took a trip down memory lane. Indulge me?

 This is a picture of the barn we lived in.  It had no heat, and floors that sloped so you walked downhill to your bedroom and uphill to the bathroom.
 This is where we worked, a landscaping company.
 We went to the beach whenever we could.
 When we first moved in in May it was very cold still in Maine so we pushed all our beds together on one wall like this, and in the mornings sometimes we'd all snuggle close before braving the blast. Did I tell you the barn had no heat?
 If you've never had a summer in Maine, I must ask: What are you waiting for?
 The island we lived on had no fast food restaurants, one night we drove some distance to get some. We might have gone a little... overboard.
 When my beautiful sister and I were young.  Thank goodness we're still beautiful, at least.
Ah, our ingenious plan for warming up - no heat, remember?
 Some of our group from that summer. I am third from the left in both pictures.  Spencer is in the yellow in the top picture.
Taking a break at work, with one of our "bosses", Mikey.
 I must ask you again, why aren't you planning a vacation to Maine right now?
 And now I have to ask myself, why am I not planning a vacation to Maine right now?  Let's see, when is a good week for a trip?

I stole every single one of these pictures from the following people's facebook pages: Melissa, Michelle, Nicole, Alison.

  1. I will always be glad that my girls have a memory of a summer so full of beautiful and dare I say poignant memories of young adulthood. :)
