Waiting on Mom’s fourth knee surgery appointment to be set up, so while my brother and sister in law took her to doctor appointments in Boston we set off in search of used picture frames, for my first public(besides all of you lol) Art Show.  I did not find what I wanted so today and tomorrow I will search and then buy new if need be.  I must drop the 2 of them off by next Saturday.  I will take a photo of them up with all of the other artists entries in this themed show New England Coast.

Have a great weekend and Happy Father’s Day to all the Daddy’s out there.

Cold Along the Coast Today

New England Lighthouses
2 Lighthouses in 1 Stop!

 

Well I had to go into the city of Portsmouth, that is NH,  today for supplies to finish all the earrings I finished making yesterday.  I asked him to grab his detector and I got the dogs water thermos filled and her Frisbee and leash into the truck.  Portsmouth sits along a river that empties into the sea.  So we were all off to have a nice day.

 

My boyfriend had his coat on and JT she did too but I had two shirts on and a very light jacket and I have to say I froze.  JT on the other hand was in the water before I knew she would do it,  she is so smart I forget she is still a DOG !  So I moved our game of catch far enough from the edge so she would not sneak back in.

 

We met a nice man with a 8 month old  puppy who wanted to play with JT but if you can’t throw something to her she doesn’t want anything to do with you,  yes spoiled for sure.  We also met a woman who was there to walk around the parking lot over and over till she had 3 miles under her belt.  She loved JT.

 

Now it was cold and raw and yes I had her off leash to play catch and had bags to pick up after her , should I need to.   I did not think there would be a problem ,well as we placed her into the truck a really nice, local police officer, told us she could be there but on leash only and that he could detect the beach but only from high tide mark to the sea.  I love this place and will come again till May when she is no longer allowed but I will bring a stick and her leash  and walk around and around till her and I have 2 or more miles done.  The other beaches we go to allow her to play,  as she is better behaved than most children.

No tickets thankfully, just letting us know as we do not live near there.

All in all still a nice but COLD DAY…..brrrr

Nubble Light

One of my favorite places to stop at in Maine is Nubble.

A very famous Lighthouse, they say many photos are

taken here and these above are mine from just one day there.

I spend anywhere from a few minuets to an hour here.

Summer, winter or fall it doesn’t matter.  I have always been drawn to this special place.

There are a few granite benches here, with names of loved ones who have left

loving families behind.  I always wanted this place to be my final resting spot and

to have my name and the names of each of my dogs, that spent time with me  here,

left on a bench for friends and family  to sit upon and view what I saw beautiful,

maybe pull out their camera and snap a photo of this glorious spot, along  the rocky shoreline.

There have been many storms that battered this beautiful spot but she has withstood

the fury  they brought as have I.  We are a testament of strength and  good construction, lol

So if you find yourself taking a trip to this beautiful State of Maine, please stop and

see it in person.  OK take a photo too and check out the benches .

There is a place for ice cream or Lobster if you go during summer but if you are like me and love going for a ride on a beautiful

fall day or a stormy winter morning this place will still be there, above the sea, helping keep

the ships below safe.

Have a NICE TRIP!
