Heading for Midcoast Maine

I thought I'd have time to prepare two Poetry Friday posts--one for Wild Rose Reader and one for Blue Rose Girls--but I've been extremely busy shopping, preparing foods (pesto, blueberry sauce for pancakes, blue cheese dip, mascarpone cream with bourbon vanilla, raspberry sauce, sundried tomato and basil spread with cream cheese and creme fraiche, smoked salmon tatare with a horseradish cream and basil sauce), and packing for our trip to Maine. We leave early this afternoon. I can hardly wait to get there. We'll be staying in the same beautiful waterfront home where we spent a week last September.

Here are some pictures I took while we we there last year:

For any of you out there who love the coast of Maine as much as I do, you'll probably agree that one children's book that truly captures the flavor of the place in both words and pictures is Robert McCloskey's Caldecott classic Time of Wonder. I was working on a post about the book this week--but haven't finished it yet.

Well, I must get ready to head north to go "Down Maine." Have a great week. I don't know if I'll be posting while I'm on vacation. It may depend on the weather.

We left on Friday. Maybe I didn't make that clear in my first kick. I enjoyed preparing for and anticipating our trip to Maine before we headed north.

You're making me hungry...both for food and for beautiful surroundings. I'm jealous, but happy for you! Hope you're having a fantastic time!
