The awesomeness of this photo speaks for itself! That’s my brother out fishing this week. How that bug even got in the trap- I have no idea! How John dares to hold it with no bands and claws that huge is even more impressive!
You can’t keep lobsters that big so they did have to throw it back, but not before John’s boss snapped this shot. It looks like that thing could break your hand! It probably could.
Besides the magnitude of this lobster I love this photo of my brother. It speaks volumes to me about his character. He’s a simple kind of man who enjoys simple pleasures. Making money on the water on a beautiful day. He finds the joys in the day to day and lives a content lifestyle.
I’m headed up the coast to spend the weekend with him and I couldn’t be happier!!! He’s the best kind of person to be around. His goofiness, charisma and love for his family make him the best brother EVER!
Taken from Ferry Beach today!
That’s right, I took almost the whole morning off, did no work, and read a non-intellectually stimulating book on the beach in between gossiping with the girls and eating salt and vinegar chips! And I’m proud of it!
I’ve been resisting the urge to hit the beach all week, even worse, I’ve been running- outside- everyday. Today I agreed to give into temptation of the ocean and resist the necessity I generally feel to work out.
The best part about going to the beach today?
Because I decided to go to the beach I couldn’t have lunch at my grandparents, which I had been looking forward to all week….BUT I still wanted to stop by and say hello quickly. I pleasantly found my aunt, my grandfather and my grandmother all on the back porch enjoying the sun. As if this weren’t delight enough, my aunt, who is fully aware of my excitement and desire to see Mumford and Sons on the Eastern Prom. this summer, asked if I had gotten my tickets today?
WHAT? I inquisitively exclaimed.
She informed me that more tickets had gone on sale at Port City at 10 (just 30 minutes earlier). I gave everyone loving hugs and kisses good-bye and headed down town. Where I found a parking space directly in front of Port City (this almost never happens). And to my excitement was able to purchase two tickets!!!!
Best start to my beach day ever! Now it’s off to tend the bar! Hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
This photo is from our friend’s wharf at Long Cove in St. George, Maine. I took it at the begining of the summer last year with my Droid (hence the reason the quality is so poor.)
However, I still think it’s an awesome pic. I love how calm the water is and how it’s a mirror of the boats and the sky above.
I have a thing with the ocean, as you can probably tell by the fact that a majoirty of my favorite foto shots are taken of it. I greatly respect it and love that it is one thing that man cannot control. It has the ability to be mirror calm, like so, or rough as hell warning any that try and charter her waters. It has always been and always will be. It is not emotional, it is life. It just…is.
This week, with the holiday and the beautiful weather, I have been a little sadden by the lack of time I will be spending in the lake and on the ocean in the midcoast this summer. It was home to many fun summers spending as much time as possible outdoors, and at the very quarry up the road from where this photo is taken.
Ah, but time changes and we must all grow up, a little bit at least. With my new direction in life, I’m finding a lot of my passion and energy is being put into writing and my social media and pr endeavors. I’m finding it easier to deny the temptation of going home and spending a lazy, sun-filled day in the midcoast.
I am thoroughly enjoying my summer here in Portland as well. I had an amazing week full of unique Portland, MAINE adventures and I wouldn’t trade them for the world!
But when I look at the landscape photos of home, I can’t help but smile and reminisce and smirk in how oblivious I was growing up to just how unbelievably beautiful the coast of Maine is.
