Beautiful Gardiner Maine

There are so many beautiful lakes in Maine.  This is near Gardiner.  We were out for a Sunday drive and took 46 pictures of different lakes.  I think this boat is a little far gone for fishing these days but I liked the textures in the old paint.  This is a wild area.  No cottages.  I don't think anyone is worried about someone taking their boat.

Yet Another Beaver Dam

There are quite a few beaver dams on my path lately and I just can't resist trying to see a beaver.  So far, no success.  Maybe they are not out and about yet.  Or maybe this dam has been abandoned.  It was a beautiful spring night and Tom and I were on our way to dinner in Ludlow.  He knew this dam was here and went out of his way to show it to me.  I liked the sparkle of the water with the reflection of the late day blue sky.

Little Red Schoolhouse...

Tom and I stopped to take some pictures last night on our way to Ludlow for dinner.  It was the perfect time of day for photos, blue sky, low sun.  This is a remberance of "the good old days" in our country when children walked to small schoolhouses.  There were usually one or two rooms and up to ten children.

Vermont Covered Bridges...

On my way home from therapy this morning I stopped at Scott Bridge.  I focused on shadows, reflections, light and dark in this picture.  The blue sky was a bonus!

Springtime in Vermont...

I was out and about today looking for some green.  This, for me at least, wraps up what Windham feels like.  Here I see mountains, a meadow, barn, and evidence of long ago.  Even the tree is interesting to me.  I took this the wrong time of day to get a clear shot but the over exposure that comes from mid afternoon put a dimension on this that I actually like.  And, I found some green.

Baby Sheep...

My friend Susan is in the midst of a baby boom.  Last night twins were born, one black and one white.  They are so tiny and adorable.  It makes me want to do crazy things like buy some sheep for my side yard.

Another Week...

I spent some time at the Weston Priory today.

This place truly is heaven on Earth. 

It is the home of a community of Benedictine monks in Weston, Vermont. They are particularly known for the songs they have contributed to Roman Catholic worship over the past 30 years.  They host five services a day, seven days a week and all are invited.

He Lives...

"He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today,"

"He walks with me, and talks with me along life's narrow way,
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart,
You ask me how I know He lives,
He lives within my heart."

Nauset Beach

The dunes of Cape Cod are ever changing.  The sand shifts with the tide and the seasons.  Artists have painted them, writers have romanced over their forlorn beauty.  They are warm on a winter day and as fragile as life itself.  If only I could be buried in the dunes.

Palm Sunday...

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever. 
from Psalm 118
